Why should Liverpool say 'thank you' when the EU never does ?

I spend a few days in Liverpool last week and took the obligatory ferry across the Mersey.

And for the second time that day I came across the EU's propaganda. (Its all over the New Lanark museum in Scotland also.)

So if the EU thinks it should get thanks - where the thanks for the English tax payer who subsidises them ?

We are being made to be grateful for getting a little of our own money back - after the EU bureaucratic shrinkage of course. Isn't it time something was done about these annoying propaganda signs ?

It's not just EU propaganda everywhere.
if you go to almost any hospital at the moment you will find a big bill board cataloguing millions of pounds being spent on hospital buildings, with the name HM Govt next to it.
Number 1 - this has always gone on, but without the propaganda.
Number 2 - this is PFI money, not govt money, and we will have to pay a large mortage as taxpayers on it. They don't mention this - very misleading.

What is the point of being grateful for EU money? We could renegotiate our relationship with the EU and spend the money ourselves instead of giving it to them, only for them to give (some of) it back!
