Crapping themselves that Britain actually doesn’t want to be in the EU, the Brussels beaurocrats have come up with a way of ramming EU grants down the throats of British cictizens to scare them out of leaving.
British farmers will be forced to put up propaganda billboards – at their own expense – promoting the EU or face having grant money clawed back under new regulations. Those receiving more than £388,000 will be made to erect a 4ft by 6ft billboard while £38,825 requires a plaque. Farmers who get £7,765 have to display an A3 poster.
So be prepared to see the countryside cluttered up by as many as 11,000 pro-EU propaganda adverts.
Government regulations warn: “Failure to display the required poster, plaque or billboard, or to replace those which are lost or damaged, will be a breach of the agreement and subject to a penalty or recovery of payments.”
Ukip MEP Stuart Agnew commented “It is outrageous that farmers are obliged to get involved in the EU propaganda machine when this money came from the British taxpayer.”
So advertise the EU or be fined for not doing so. Great isn’t it?
Time to leave…
