It’s our money, after all! Despite sending money into the EU, Britain must pay tribute to the bloc for initiatives.
Despite Brexit, and despite the fact that the UK was a net contributor throughout its membership in the bloc, the UK must continue to express public gratitude to the EU for cash subsidies spent on projects in the country until at least 2023, according to a Brexiteer.
Furthermore, the government faces legal action if it fails to install plaques honoring Brussels for any money given to projects receiving EU funds under the 2014-2020 European Structural Fund. After submitting a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, Jayne Adye, director of the pro-Brexit Get Britain Out campaign, announced her shocking revelation (MHCLG).
There were no plans to remove EU plaques from any previously completed infrastructure projects, according to the response.
Furthermore, the MHCLG confirmed that, unless legal action is taken, Britain will be required to continue putting up such signs in relation of finished schemes for at least the next two years.
“As an independent sovereign nation, we should be supporting our own investments in local infrastructure, through the much-anticipated ‘levelling-up agenda,’ rather than continuing to push EU spending and control of UK taxpayers’ money,” Ms Adye added.
“The demand that the UK continue to plaster EU propaganda on infrastructure in our nation after we leave the EU is ridiculous.”
Ms Adye emphasized that any money spent on such projects in the UK came from British taxpayers and should not come with “strings attached.”
“The very idea that we are still governed by EU regulations after we have left the EU makes a mockery of the idea that we are now a free and independent nation,” she continued.
“If the EU succeeds in levying any ludicrous charges for the removal of this propaganda, the UK government should proceed with the removal of the advertising and deduct any fines from the so-called ‘Divorce Bill’ demanded by the EU.
“Failure to do so will only embolden the EU to continue slapping sanctions on the UK and seeking to bleed it dry.”
Ms Adye argued that the scenario was again another evidence of the UK’s continued kowtowing to Brussels.
