We are all victims of crime

As Britain enters what could be the most serious economic crisis since 1929 it is worth looking at how much membership of the European Union costs Britain

By 2008 Britain will have made total contributions to the European Community (EC) Budget of £230.4 billion gross or almost £68.2 billion net.

• By the end of the current EC budget period Britain will have made estimated total contributions to the EC Budget of £315.4 billion gross and £101.4 billion net.

• By 2007 Britain had an accumulated trade deficit with the other EU member states of £383.7 billion.

• The Common Agricultural Policy costs Britain at least £16.8 billion per annum.

• The Common Fisheries Policy costs Britain at least £3.275 billion per annum.

• Over-regulation on business costs Britain at least £28 billion per annum.



That is the equivalent for every man, woman and child in Britain of £1,077 per annum gross or £915 per annum net.

Or the equivalent for every tax-paper in Britain of £2,119 per annum gross or £1,799 per annum net
