The EU. What's In It For Me?

From Muffled Vociferation, my attention is drawn to this new EU website promising:
A No-Nonsense Guide for UK Citizens to what the European Union Delivers.
I think we've already worked that out for ourselves, thanks.

This website is firmly in the "we haven't got our message across" camp, the default position of every deeply unpopular government who's unable to comprehend why. Labour were masters of this before the last election.

The website even has it's own EU Myths page. Pro EU loving types simply adore these, as if dispelling a few silly tabloid articles somehow justifies its existence. It doesn't.

Funnily enough, that the EU is a fundamentally corrupt, undemocratic, self-serving bureaucracy which won't take 'no' for an answer doesn't appear under EU Myths. I wonder why?

Update: Reading the myths, they don't even give an original source as to where the story came from. And quite often, as I posted here they are result of assuming a paper has said something which it hasn't.

  1. Yeah, I saw them. They made up the myths themselves, and don't include real criticisms.
