Brexit Will Increase CANCER for Brits! | A Desperate & Disrespectful Statement from the EU REMAIN Campaign!
In the latest scaremongering in the referendum campaign, the REMAIN camp have sourced a pro-EU supporter from the scientific community, the Cancer Doctor ‘Paul Nurse’ when asked about cancer care in the EU said that “shared work and funding” between the EU and the UK had slightly improved cancer care for British patients.
He warned that Brexit could risk the breakdown of close international collaboration between scientists on vital research, meaning more British people could suffer from cancer as a knock on affect.
This is even though that The European Union is meant to be a trading block and nothing more.
Sir Paul Nurse of The Lancet Oncology medical journal said that maintaining links with EU researchers will be “vital to maintain the UK’s role in cancer research and improve UK cancer services”.
“This alliance will be most effectively delivered by remaining in the EU and robustly supporting research and patient-focused legislation,” they write.
“We must continue to influence and share European policy in important domains such as clinical trials and clinical best practice, and deliver the the highest quality cancer research that underpins improved cancer care for our patients. It is for these reasons that we oppose the UK leaving the EU” highest quality cancer research that underpins improved cancer care for our patients. It is for these reasons that we oppose the UK leaving the EU”
What he does fail to mention however, is it is in fact Britain who is one of the main contributors in funding to cancer research within the European Union, vastly outspending many other member states.
The UK as one of the EU’s highest contributors gives 13.3% of all the money Brussels receives. Britain has historically been one of the largest contributors to the EU budget, and it will likely increase as we are forecast to go from #4 to #3 spot in the world’s largest economies in the near distant future.
The UK gives £18 Billion to the EU every single year, of which it receives a £5 Billion rebate back, the EU also gives back some money for British projects leaving our net contribution at £8.5 Billion per year, this amount we lose completely, and we are unable to see where it goes or has been spent, due to the refusal of the EU to audit their accounts.
Our contribution of £8.5 Billion per year, does not take into account the money it takes housing thousands of foreign criminals per year in our jails, and the medical care we give to EU nationals, or extra school places and houses needed for a booming population of migrants every year in the UK.
With all this taken into consideration, it is highly likely that funding for our own people’s care would greatly improve if we were to leave the EU, not by remaining.
