If only it was just £257 per household
The statement that every household will have to pay £257 towards the EU next year after Labour signed away much of Britain's hard-won budget rebate has become a much repeated "fact" in recent days. This is said to result from Tony Blair's duplicity a few years back. I am here to inform you that the £257 figure is rubbish, absolute bollocks in fact. My household will pay way, way more as probably will yours. The figure assumes that every household pays equally and that is not the case. Those living off the fat in benefit Britain will pay nothing, neither will the NEETS or the unemployed or any of the myriad of non-taxpayers. The true cost to the taxpayers in this country will be far, far higher; could anyone work it out?
