ANOTHER BREXIT FACTS4EU.ORG EXCLUSIVE
UK TO PAY FOR 56% HIKE IN 2019 EU THIRD WORLD IMMIGRATION COSTS
EU COUNCIL APPROVES HUGE RISE FOR NEXT YEAR
Yesterday in Brussels the EU Council approved the EU’s £150 BILLION budget for 2019.
At the same time in Luxembourg the EU Commission was slammed by the European Court of Auditors in a report criticizing how the 2014-2020 budget is being spent.
BREXIT FACTS4EU.ORG SUMMARY
WHAT THE UK WILL HAVE TO FUND NEXT YEAR UNDER THERESA MAY’S PLANS
Increases for 2019 compared to this year
Total EU Budget 2019: €164.1 BILLION
Immigrant budget to soar by 56%
‘Juncker Youth’ budget to rocket by 141%
Youth exchange project to increase to €2.6 billion
EU pension contributions to grow by more than 6% to €2 billion per year
EU’S 2019 BUDGET
The EU Council’s revised budget for 2019 amounts to a total of €164.1 billion. That’s almost £150 billion.
The overall increase on 2018 is 2.1%, but the headline figures mask some extraordinary increases in spending on certain areas.
EU’s THIRD WORLD IMMIGRANT CRISIS FUND RISES BY 56% NEXT YEAR
The EU’s ‘Asylum, Migration and Integration’ Fund will soar by 55.8% compared to 2018. That’s an enormous increase in just one year.
Under Theresa May’s Chequers Proposals the UK will pay towards this, and the UK will pay a disproportionately higher proportion of the increase compared to the majority of EU27 member states.
‘JUNCKER YOUTH’ FUND LEAPS BY 141% NEXT YEAR
EU Commission President Juncker started a programme to involve the youth of the EU in social projects, where they must sign an oath to commit to the EU’s ‘values’. The EU even gives this a military title: “the European Solidarity Corps”.
Next year its funding will leap by 141%.
Staying on the subject of young people, the EU’s profligate youth exchange programme, called ‘Erasmus+’, will see its funding jump by 10.4% to €2.6 billion (£2.3 billion) – again, in just one year.
We have found in previous research that only 0.5% of British higher education students use this programme, despite young Remainers absurdly claiming that Brexit will deny them the opportunity to study abroad.
THE BARMY ‘EU ARMY’
One item enters the EU’s budget for the first time. It wasn’t in the 2018 budget because it involves spending on an area that was only agreed last year.
It is called the ‘European Defence Industrial Development Programme’. This is just one small part of the EU’s overall planned expenditure on ‘common defence forces’.
From nothing, this fund has been allocated almost €0.25 billion for next year alone.
THE EU BUREAUCRATS BRIBE THEIR RUBBER STAMP ‘PARLIAMENT’
Technically, the EU Commission and the EU Council need the EU Parliament to approve this budget for 2019. They have ensured this in two ways.
The EU Parliament’s overall budget has been increased by an inflation exceeding amount, to fractionally under €2 billion. That’s £1.8 billion to fund a body for one year, which is profoundly anti-Brexit and ideologically on the wilder extremes of ‘United States of Europe’ thinking.
Secondly, pensions. The EU’s pension contributions are set to rise by another inflation-busting amount, to just over €2 billion for 2019. The increase is 6.2% and no explanation is given for it.
Members of the Brexit Facts4EU.Org team have scanned the BBC and other mainstream media outlets overnight, but bizarrely we can find no mention of the facts contained in our report.
Perhaps it’s because it took many hours of research through the night, digging down into hard-to-find documents and appendices, in order to analyse the figures.
What was evident was the fact that the EU Council has approved its budget for 2019, which is a revision of the version presented to it by the EU Commission.
This in itself should be news. After all, the UK will be paying for a significant part of the EU’s budget next year, if Theresa May gets her way. And a total budget for 2019 of almost £150 billion is
a staggering sum.
UK TAXPAYER TO FOOT BILL FOR RAPID ESCALATION IN EU THIRD WORLD IMMIGRANT COSTS
We think our readers would like to know if they will be expected to fund a 56% increase in the cost of the EU struggling with its third world immigrant crisis.
Let’s not forget, we’re talking about the budget for next year, which starts in under 4 months’ time. This is not like Philip Hammond’s Treasury (‘Treachery’) Department, forecasting that Brexit will be a disaster for the country in fifteen years’ time. This is the here and now.
Isn’t this all the more reason to ‘CHUCK CHEQUERS’?
OFFICIAL AUDITORS SLAM THE EU FOR WASTE AND FOR UNDEMOCRATIC PRACTICES
In the opening of this article, we mentioned a report from the ‘European Court of Auditors’, released yesterday, which slams the way the EU is spending its money.
This is in addition to another Ombudsman report yesterday which slams the rushed and secretive appointment of President Juncker’s former Chief of Staff, the German, Martin Selmayr, as Secretary-General.
You can read a little about the undemocratic appointment of Selmayr in some of today’s press, but we doubt the other story about the auditors’ report slamming the EU’s lack of control over spending will be covered.[Sources: EU Council | EU Commission | European Court of Auditors | EU Ombudsman] 05.50am, 05 Sept 2018

Message: This is absolutely disgusting. The whole idea of Brexit is to get away from dishing out our money for no benefit to us. I believe/hope Chequers is dead. T May should be out within a few months, and the excellent WTO option will be grabbed with both hands. That now is the only Brexit.
