EXCLUSIVE EU REPORT. most Britons buy online globally, however most EU27 citizens buy from the EU.
EU27 are ‘Little Europeans’
For the latest Eurobarometer survey released by the EU Commission yesterday, 27,438 citizens in the 28 EU countries were asked a series of questions about their views on international trade.
Let us all look at the question, and then answer the question which sums up the differences between the British and the EU27 when it comes to openness to the World. The answer is quite a simple answer, we British people buy globally, most EU27 citizens don’t, we embrace the whole world the EU27 don't
For the latest Eurobarometer survey released by the EU Commission yesterday, 20 November 2019, 27,438 citizens in the 28 EU countries were asked a series of questions about their views on international trade.
One of the questions on international trade was everyone’s habits when shopping for goods.
This was the question they asked “In the past 12 months, how often have you bought goods or services via the Internet
from sellers outside the EU?
The answer that came back was very interesting indeed because it showed that above every country in the EU28 we British embrace the world and do not rely upon just 27 countrys to supply our needs.
- 61% of British people had bought goods or services from outside the EU in the past year
2. Only 42% of EU citizens had done so
3. We British people came out 1st out of 28 nationalities for buying online globally
4. Amongst EU27 countries the figure was as low as 20%
About this EU survey
This survey was requested by the European Commission, Trade Directorate-General. It was co-ordinated by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Communication. It is one of many expensive surveys conducted by the EU each year, which are carried out by a firm based in Brussels.
This survey is yet another in a long line of expensive public opinion exercises each year in which the EU Commission asks (often) leading questions designed to show how well it is doing and how much the EU public love the EU.
Above I have highlighted just one of the questions in the latest survey which was released yesterday. I have done so because it is highly indicative of the fundamental differences between the UK and the rest of the EU.
Remainers (and the EU itself) always speak of ‘solidarity’, ‘unity’ and other luvvie concepts. The simple fact is that the EU is a forced amalgamation of very different national interests.
Tomorrow I will publish an indictment of this survey as a whole, and show how it is yet another propaganda exercise by the EU Commission, part-paid for out of UK taxpayer funds.
