What have the EU ever done for us?

 

I feel as though I’ve been having this conversation a lot lately…

 

They’ve bled us dry, and what have they ever given us in return?

Paid maternity leave

What?

Paid maternity leave

Oh, oh yeah they did give us that, that’s true, yeah…

Equal pay and anti-discrimination laws

Oh yeah, equal pay and anti-discrimination laws, Reg, remember what it used to be like?

Alright I’ll grant you paid maternity leave, equal pay and anti-discrimination laws are the three things the EU have done…

And guaranteed holiday leave…

Well yeah, obviously guaranteed holiday leave. I mean that goes without saying, doesn’t it? But apart from paid maternity leave, equal pay, anti-discrimination laws and guaranteed holiday le…

The human rights act…The Tories wanted to scrap it but EU law meant they couldn’t.

…Forced mobile phone companies to stop charging roaming fees…

…Free movement across European borders…

…Broke the monopolies of the phone companies to enable cheaper calls…

…Broke the monopolies of the airlines to enable cheap European flights…

Yeah they certainly know how to keep big businesses in order Reg, let’s face it, they’re the only ones who could in a place like Britain.

ALRIGHT! But apart from paid maternity leave, equal pay, anti-discrimination laws, guaranteed holiday leave, free movement, the human rights act, cheaper phone calls and cheap flights…WHAT HAVE THE EU EVER DONE FOR US!?

I realise I will just have infuriated half the people who read this, so I’ll shut up now 😀
