EU is such a horrible wasteful bureaucracy. In 2017, several of us were driven from London to Truro in Cornwall to distribute some job training/job scheme leaflets paid for by the EU. I worked for a leaflet distribution company at the time. However, this money had to be sent to Brussels by the UK government first and later was sent back to sponsor this bizarre action. Letting some guys in a foreign country decide what is good for Britain, or any other country, and what job training schemes to support means loss of sovereignty.

And what was the carbon footprint of our round trip?

Several years earlier I witnessed a total waste of money provided by the EU to Poland. They sponsored theatrical workshop in a local theatre my daughter’s class was to participate in. The workshop was a fiction and was cut short. Waste of time and waste of money. I am sure the subsequent fictional report looked good on paper.

Another day I came to pick up my daughter from school in Poland and was surprised to find that she was compulsorily subjected to a medical superficial examination she did not need and we parents have not agreed to. When individuals and families are stripped of their fundamental rights and their dignity, that’s totalitarianism. We have not agreed to our daughter being undressed in front of some strange people. This was sponsored by the EU.
