Better off Out campaign

Norman Tebbitt has said this:

BREAKING NEWS: Norman Tebbit, The Rt Hon Lord Tebbit of Chingford, has become the latest supporter and the new Patron of the Better Off Out campaign. Lord Tebbit said, ""From being a supporter of British membership of the Common Market in 1970 I have come to believe that the United Kingdom would be Better Off Out of the developing European Republic of the 21st century. We British have a thousand year history of self-government. We have been free and democratic longer than any other nation. The European Union is too diverse, too bureaucratic, too corporatist and too centralist to be a functioning democracy. We are happy to trade with our European friends and the rest of the world - but we would prefer to govern ourselves."Lord Tebbit is the third patron, joining former Speaker of the House of Commons Lord Weatherill and bestselling author Frederick Forsyth CBE.Read the story, and place comments if you wish, here:http://conservativehome.blogs.com/torydiary/2007/03/lord_tebbit_bec.htmland here:http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/politics/littleandlarge/march07/eu30.htm

No, I don't. And I don't think people are aware how much funding we receive from the EU either.

We, meaning the Italians?

At the very least the EU is a racket.
