Britain will spend millions on EU opt-outs

Space research, French films and tropical tuna may not be taxpayers' priorities but they are among causes Britons will be spending millions to promote, courtesy of the European Union, next year.

A copy of the proposed EU budget for 2008 seen by this newspaper reveals that bureaucrats in Brussels will spend swathes of their £84 billion budget, including £10.5 billion of British money, on politically correct initiatives which would seem to have little benefit to Britain.

Why do we have to spend money on this crap when the majority of people in this country don’t want anything to do with the EU? Why can’t our leaders put the people of this country first for once and give us a referendum?
