This morning, I received an email from a constituent. It began like this ....
"Dear Douglas Carswell,
As a 73yr. old pensioner receiving just £77 per week state pension and still having my savings taxed,I resent any of my money being taken from me (without my consent) to be squandered by the unelected bunch of ( "ne're do wells) in Brussels."
Even Ed Balls' Labour party recognises that at a time of cutbacks, we should not be giving more to Brussels.
I might think of myself as Eurosceptic. But just imagine what my opponents might hit me with in my local constituency if I was to vote in favour of this £4.3 Billion increase in our EU budget contribution ....
