EU doesn’t ‘give’ us anything

I am fed up with hearing how much the EU gives us. They don’t ‘give’ us anything. If it wasn’t for Maggie going in swinging her handbag, we wouldn’t even get the small rebate on the hundreds of millions we hand to this money-grabbing establishment every week.

MPs will have to start manning up now, as no longer will they be able to shrug their shoulders and wail - ‘well it’s not us, it’s Brussels’. We need them now to halve the amount we give in aid.

At last, no excuse for clearing our prisons of the hundreds of murderers and crooks inhabiting them at our expense.

I would rather die of thirst than use a coffee shop that fiddles millions from our tax system. If we didn’t use them, they would soon cough up.

My heart bleeds for youngsters trying to get onto the property ladder. So many greedy landlords holding councils to ransom for sky-high rents. No worries for those with rich mummies and daddies, just those who know their place.

And don’t get me started on the Human Rights Act.
