BRITAIN is said to give the European Union €350 million each week, and that money could help improve the NHS or the British economy.
This has been constantly told to the electorate by Boris Johnson from the Leave campaign. But it seems like Johnson is making up facts and is misleading us all.
The EU referendum is drawing closer and the tension between Conservatives is becoming apparent.
I look forward to 24 June when it will all be over, because I’m fed up of switching on to the news and hearing the same facts and figures being repeated over and over again. These figures are misleading.
What angers me the most, is that there are British citizens, including expats, that are voting to leave Europe because they don’t like how Britain has become. If you’re an expat, surely you wouldn’t care about the state of the country as you left it to move to Europe!
Recently a news reporter interviewed members of the older generation and asked their views. They all said that they will be voting to leave the EU and said they wanted their country back!
Why is everyone blaming the European Union?
I’m all for tightening up border control and security but I don’t think Europe is to blame for everything that is wrong with the UK. Why not blame local and central government? They run the country.
Was it the European Union that said they wanted primary and secondary schools in England to become academies? No.
Did the European Union turn round to the steel workers at the Scunthorpe plant and say they weren’t prepared to buy out Tata Steel? No.
Everyone needs to stop blaming the EU and think about how better or worse off they think Britain will be when it comes to voting day.
As a young person and an EU resident, I am voting for the UK to remain in Europe. I feel, in my opinion, that it’s the right decision. I also feel that it will affect my generation and future generations more so than anyone else.
I’m not here to influence anyone’s opinion or vote, I’m only giving my view, and my views will not be the same as everyone’s.
But ask yourself this, is the European Union really at fault here?
