Who pays for all these so-called EU-funded schemes?

29 November, 2018

• NICHOLAS Wood rattles off an endless list of rhetorical Brexit questions, (Questions on withdrawing from the EU and the consequences, November 22).

Sadly he runs out of space before asking himself one crucial question: who pays for all these so-called “EU-funded” schemes? It’s the UK taxpayer, of course, not the generosity of Brussels.

I counted no less than 14 questions, all intended to suggest that all ties with Europe would be lost for ever and that the UK would be wholly incapable of functioning post-Brexit.

If Project Fear awards prizes, Mr Wood is surely in contention this year. I, for one, will certainly be wary of all electrical plugs after March 29 2019.
