‘Brits WANT their money back NOW!’ British MEP demands Brussels return UK taxpayers’ BILLIONS

A BRITISH MEP has ripped into the Brussels bloc in a furious EU Parliament rant over the way it deploys propaganda in a bid to shore up its project.

David Coburn claimed that the British people “saw through” the European Union’s propaganda when it voted for Brexit.

Mr Coburn was discussing the topic of Russian propaganda in the European Parliament when he turned on the bloc.

The Ukip MEP also took a swipe at the BBC which he branded the “Brussels Broadcasting Cooperation”.

He said: “We are again discussing the influence of so-called Russian propaganda in EU countries.

“What about the millions, the millions in EU propaganda to pervert the democratic decisions of the Irish the Dutch and the French on the Lisbon treaty.

“And you spent millions on EU propaganda to prevent Brexit. Aided, of course, by the BBC, the Brussels Broadcasting Cooperation… This destroys any credibility or partiality that they might have had.

“Fortunately the British public saw through that one.”

Mr Coburn continued his rant before he took a dig at the “EU Orwellian propaganda machine” which was supporting the European Union project.

“But the EU is still trying to do this,” he said. “By setting up the Orwellian propaganda machine to push the EU project and subvert national democracies.

“In your own words, ‘challenging Euroscepticism’.”

The comments come this week after the President of the European Council Donald Tusk told the UK it could still change its mind on Brexit.

Mr Tusk said that the EU’s “hearts” were still open and suggested they would welcome Britain back into the bloc.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker reiterated the message before he later warned that Brexit would be “catastrophic”.

Speaking yesterday Mr Juncker said: “When it comes to Brexit I am sure that there will be no winners from this situation.

“This is a lose-lose situation, it’s a lose-lose situation both for the British and for the members of the European Union. I continue to feel that the exit of Great Britain is a catastrophe.

“It is a defeat that we all have to deal with the consequences of but the causes of the British decision run much deeper.

“As Mrs May has said the British have never felt entirely comfortable with the European Union so the guilt lies upon many shoulders.

“We are not throwing the British out, we would like the British to stay and if they so wish they should be allowed to do so.”
