""Ebbw Vale, left devastated when the steelworks closed, has had more European money poured into it than perhaps any other small town in Britain. But according to the figures Kelly heard, “we get out £7m a year from the EU and we put in £19m”. Anyway, he says, “it was time for a change”.
There's no such thing as "European Money". It's European Tax Payer's money, of which in recent years, British Tax Payers were the second biggest net contributors.

The Grauniad like to talk about it like it's some big happy pot of money that the EU distribute to people out of kindness.
