Nosemonkey’s EUtopia distinguishes fact from fiction

Nosemonkey’s EUtopia is one of the top Euroblogs. Far from enthusiastic about how the European Union (mal)functions, J Clive Matthews explains how the EU works and patiently engages in discussion with commentators, a number of them with the simplistic views of British anti-EU campaigners.

Nosemonkey is worth following continuously, but this time I would like to mention two posts, which try to set some persistent myths straight:

UKIP’s “Britain paying the EU £40 million a day” claim vs the REAL costs of UK EU membership (22 May 2009).



What percentage of laws come from the EU? (2 June 2009).



Include the comments in your reading, and wonder at Nosemonkey’s patience.
