"bled the UK dry" ? Please, have a word with yourself, that is the kind of absolute nonsense I would attribute to Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage, not an intelligent man like yourself. The UK annual "fee" to the EU is £18bn (Put into context, we spend £125bn on the NHS) Of course, we don't actually "pay" that amount, we get a £6bn rebate) Then of course, the EU sends money back to the poorest areas of the UK, three guesses which of the poorest areas gets most of that? Going forward, we will have to rely on the generosity of the Tories. Because that's worked out ever so well for Wales in the past hasn't it?
