All you May want (or don’t want) to know about EU funding of developments within the Union and beyond:
No the EU don’t “earn” any money, they get their funds from the member states.
The member states get their money from the tax payers.
Isn’t that how ALL government get their money??
Future taxpayers, born and unborn, are not consulted, but present ones are, true European and National elections. All EU spendings has to be agreed on by all 27 member states and the European Parliament.
Does any Government ask future taxpayers anything?
PS> You are lucky, the UK will no longer have to contribute to the EU budget (after they have paid what they owe)
They will also not receive any EU grants for their farmers or businesses.
