Facts4EU argues that its study is a telling picture of how British and German taxpayers continue to fund EU ambitions. He adds that it is a clear reminder to other member states where the funds actually come from.

Facts4EU analysts analyzed 2020 European Commission data released last month and found that the £11.1 billion the UK deposited into an EU bank account is more than covering Poland’s £10.7 billion membership costs.

Facts4EU’s editor-in-chief, Lee Evans, explains that in his report he referred to Poland because it is a member of the 27th European Union, and it is “the single largest beneficiary of EU funds”.

“Many Britons are mistaken in thinking that Boris Johnson The act of Britain leaving the European Union In January last year, the UK has not paid annual contributions to the EU since then. This is unfortunately not true,” notes Evans, citing Express.co.uk.

The result of Theresa May agreeing to this is catastrophic and unjustified divorce billHe indicated that Britain will continue to pay EU money until 2064, that is, another 43 years.

“We have nothing against Poland, its citizens or the nearly one million Poles who have decided to live legally in Great Britain. Our report concerns relations with the European Union and Great Britain, and Poland is simply the largest beneficiary of EU funds” – he explains.

“The truth, of course, is that this is not money from the European Union at all. It is money from the member states, surplus It comes from a small number of countries that contribute net to the EU budget (of which the UK has long been the second largest donor),” says the editor-in-chief of Fact4EU.

However, all the paintings on the projects in Poland declare: Funded by the EU XYZ Fund. The following might be more accurate: Funded mainly by German and British taxpayers– Oh Lee Evans.

“There are countless areas in the UK where locals would like to see the improvements in roads, rail and other infrastructure that have taken place in Poland since it joined the European Union in 2004,” he adds.

“Improvements were not limited to transport infrastructure. Many aspects of Polish life are now much better thanks to the generosity of the richer EU member states – notably Great Britain and Germany” – says the editor-in-chief of Fact4EU.

Referring to the so-called Polexit, that is, Poland’s possible exit from the European Union, Evans says it is unlikely. Because the Poles think so EU money They have changed a large part of Poland’s infrastructure and improved their lives, so why would they vote to leave the European Union? – he explains.

He concludes, “The most important thing in our opinion is that the public in both donor and recipient countries is aware of two things: that this transfer of wealth has been going on for years and who is responsible for it.”
