EU economics for the layman

Posted by davidburbage on November 10, 2008

As Daniel Hannan says (in noting that the EU has once again failed to lodge accounts that audit ok)

“A final observation. Britain is the second-largest net contributor to the EU budget after Germany. If we withheld our subs, we’d have enough to give the entire country a two-thirds reduction in council tax. At a time when all three parties are casting around for a way to fund tax-cuts, I thought that might be worth mentioning.”

You see, what we get for our EU contributions – Council Tax 200% higher than it could be.

The things you can do with statistics !
