Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative Party leadership contender Boris Johnson facing a court hearing over his claim, made during the EU Referendim campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Rabid Remainers tried to claim somebody in the Leave campaign (they weren’t quite sure if it was Boris, Nigel Farahe, Jacob Rees – Mogg, Michael Gove or somebody else and didn’t really care,) had said all of the money would go to the NHS. Nobody had actually said it of course but such is the solipsism of the globalist camp that if they want something to be true, they can easily convince themseles it is true.
The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:
from The Bruges Group
The true cost to Britain being a part of the European Union is close to £661 million per week since 2010, a number hidden from the British taxpayers due to an intricate payments system and largely ignored by the mainstream media.
Our estimated figure encompasses £80billion lost to the Treasury after the European Court of Justice forced tax rebates to multinationals.
A key area of controversy is on the rebate, an annual, purported “reduction” in United Kingdom’s contribution to the EU budget that’s equal to about 66% of the difference between what the UK contributes to the EU budget and its receipts from the EU.
Even after the rebate, in membership fees alone, Britain shelled out £70.6 billion since 2010.
Data derived from a briefing paper on “The UK’s contribution to the EU Budget” indicates Britain contributed between £8-10 billion per year. The same report acknowledged “the UK made the second largest net contribution to the EU budget in absolute terms, and the third largest net contribution per head of population” in 2015.
If the EU exceeds its budget, as it did in the fiscal year 2014-2015, UK is responsible for footing the difference. We did that year in the amount of £1.7 billion, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The EU demanded the amount after recalculating the income of member states dating back almost 20 years, penalizing the British economy that was found to be larger than previously determined. The article detailed Britain “paid the amount due” in full with two instalments not subject to rebates.
Parliament has no control over these payments since Britain is part of the EU and civil servants are legally obliged to pay these costs. Britain is increasingly relied upon as a financial support structure for Eurozone countries facing serious financial difficulty or at risk of defaulting on their debt
EU’s Top Eurofederalist admits EU wants an empire
The leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in Europe (ALDE) told CNN that plans to reform the EU and devolve power from Brussels back to the nation-state proposed by the populist paries that have spring up in member states, and led by Matteo Salvin’s Lega (League) in Italy, Marine le Pen and her Rassemblement National in France and Hungary’s Victor Orban, leader of the Fidesz party would mean that the bloc “will die inside.”

Brexit Is Now About More Than Leaving The EU
Until now we have not posted anything in the past few days on Brexit. Our position is well know to our readers, let’s face it, the saturation coverage left nothing new to be said. The whole thing is a craptangle, but it was obvious from when the Conservative Party engineered a situation in which Theresa May was left as the only candidate for the leadership that there could be no other outcome.
EU “Sounds Alarm” Over New US Sanctions On Russia; Germany Threatens Retaliation
Late on Friday (21/07/17), Congressional negotiators agreed to advance a cross – party bill that would punish Russia for its (alleged) interference in the 2016 election according to the Wall Street Journal.

Nigel Farage Swipes Back At Irrational, Screeching, Crazy Clinton

The Hypocrisy and Snobbery Of The Remain Campaign And The Antidote
When I had to defriend a Facebook contact because she was arguing in favour of the EU, it was not simply because I support Brexit that I had become pissed of with her, it was the snobbish and condescending way she dismissed supporters of LEAVE and their case. People are entitled to their opinion on the European Union, but they should check the ‘facts’ they post in support of their arguments.
