My speech this morning: Investment in Business

Mr President,


Businesses small, medium and large have been contacting me in their droves about this much vaunted EU Investment. This mythical EU money that the pro-European argument says the UK is so heavily dependent on.


Well, lets put aside the argument that EU money does not exist. The fact is that there are no call for 2014 onwards


Because of delays in agreeing budgets have led to indecision and confusion over EU funds.


Civil society, the bedrock of democracy, is promised EU grants, but again there has been too much uncertainty. And more disastrously, INACTION.


I note that the EU are not too slow when taking our money, our taxpayers money but are too arrogant and negligent in throwing back some crumbs
