    Interesting. I live in Blaenau Gwent which is top of the league for deprivation in the UK.
    Blaenau Gwent, also, is receiving money from the EU. The overwhelming majority of people in Blaenau Gwent voted out!
    The EU money is, in people's opinions, not going to where it should go. There is a high level of unemployment in the area and this needed, and still needs, to be addressed before spending money on artistic designs that are easy on the eye and might make the area look good.

    Unfortunately what you said is exactly how/why some have been hoodwinked into thinking they and the areas in which they live are benefiting from being in the EU. The UK is a net contributor to the EU, so any money we get back was our money to begin with.

    Not only is that bad enough, but like you alluded to the money areas such as yours gets 'from the EU' has to be spent the way the EU decides it should. This means that money gets spent on things such as vanity projects, or 'perhaps' projects which in some way benefits the EU and it's cronies when it should be used to help the area as a whole, particularly those most in need of a helping hand.
