Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I don't see any reason why not. Rather than sending off a pound to Brussels and being grateful for the 50p that comes back to fund such projects, the country will be able to put the original pound in.

How is it propaganda? Are you saying that the EU funding of the roads is factually incorrect? Or that Scotland is often underfunded because of its distance from Westminster?

Or what?

Seems a bit of a bold and confident dismissal without much to back it up.
He's just having a wee bit of banter that Scotland is impoverished. To be fair, he's not far off the mark in many places. We send all our pounds to Westminister and get 50ps back too, so we need all the EU help we can get.

Maybe it's because the EU is better at PR.

You don't see many signs saying "finanbced by Westmister", but that doesn't mean the money isn't flowing from there too.
If you look closely, many an MP's duck moat or portcullis has this sign on it.
