What About The EU & Non-EU Support?

Why does / did England hand £12 billion out to foreign countries each year in aid?

AND THEN also contribute billions via the organisation they used to call the EU?

I believe we have been giving too much away, and still are - even today another load of dosh is promised to countries not in the organisation they used to call the EU.

Please discuss.



Today:

MEPs give their backing to a non-binding motion urging EU states to provide “concrete support” for the democratically-elected government in Tunisia.

The country’s economy has struggled since the Arab Spring in 2011, as well as following terror attacks which have hit its tourist industry.

Before the summer recess MEPs approved an EU proposal to lend €500m to Tunisia to supplement medium-term loans from the IMF.

2015:

EU agrees 1.8bn-euro loan to cash-strapped Ukraine

In Riga, the EU also pledged €200m in grants to Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, which have signed association agreements with the 28-nation bloc.
