There’s a website that tells you how the EU benefits you

13 September, 2018

• CAN I draw the attention of people who want to shut down any debate over the disastrous plans for leaving the EU, that there is a website showing exactly how much money has come into our area thanks to our membership of the union.

The website www.myeu.uk allows anyone to use their postcode to see where money from Brussels has gone to help fund local charities and entrepreneurs. It shows that across Camden there are literally hundreds of projects that have benefited from EU money to the tune of tens and even hundreds of thousands of pounds.

For example, there is one project by a local business to use technology to improve safety and efficiency at airports, another for the British Transport police to improve crisis management, and a third on tackling high-risk hematological tumors. Please have a look, you will be amazed.
