Net Contributors To The Eu

Recommended Posts

This is from 2007. Funny how, with the exception of Germany, the biggest net contributors are also the ones most pressing to leave. Now that they're also going to be picking up the UK's £3.5bn between them you can see the process accelerating.

Then we will see how much Germany likes funding £20bn to the remaining 20 countries every year.

Can anyone find a more recent graph?

For them because they actually make stuff they probably think 20 billion is chicken feed to be able to export in euros when the DM would be at least 50% more highly valued.....pretty much up to the same tricks as China.

Indeed it has been suggested that the Euro advantage is so great they would sooner lose all their exports to the UK and not lose the advantage of the Euro. German industry would really fall apart if the EU collapses and they have to have a fairly valued currency.

If we are cut adrift, still prefer to be out of the EU, a collapse in UK GDP would ammost certainly bring in an economic reset, end welfare and asset ponzi schemes, balance trade; we can't go on importing people forever just to keep the Ponzi skittles in the air for the troughers...welfare recipients and the public sector.

I think Germany ought to be going for a crap soon and investigating their stools on the German porcelain with a nice shelf on it. :wacko:

3.5bn for what exactly? SJWs still moaning its bugger all for all the benefits...yet the benefits elude them when asked. apart from those in EU funded jobs of course.

For the benefit of being able to freely travel to EU countries and being 'European', not realising EU does not equal European, to be part of this vague wishy washy 'Big Thing' and being able to live and work anywhere in the EU notwithstanding the fact hardly any of them can speak another European language fluently nor have any specific skills nor general transferable skills that are in demand by employers in these countries.

I thought so.

To all you expats outside the EU....you are a figment of my imagination.

I imagine all the people who have already emigrated to EU countries will get a leave to remain, so there could be a sudden flurry of people selling up to move to France/Spain in the next two years - get in before the gates close.

Just buy a property in Portugal for 500k euros and you get Schengen access automatically.

BTW we give a lot more than suggested. Whenever we buy goods from outside the EU the tariff we pay (10% on cars for example) goes to the EU after UK has kept a small collection fee.

The gates won't close if you have cash.

For the UK the graph does not tell the whole story because on top of our direct contribution to the EU you have to include exported wages and benefit payments from migrants that are not actually spent here.

One of the reasons for the EU's failure is it spent all its time legislating on trivialities while dealing with things like taxes, benefits, borders etc By allowing so many member states to game the system it has inevitably laid the seeds of is own demise

Trivialities are what it does best. I've found an ad-hoc roadcone placed near a hole. It's the wrong colour, and does not have a CE mark.
