FT Pub Quiz – What has the EU ever done for us?

February 23, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Remember the line in Monty Python movie ‘Life of Brian’, ‘What have the Romans ever done for us?’ This can be applied to the question of a British exit from the EU – ‘What has the EU ever done for us?’ Below is an informative video clip from the FT with a bit of humour. The questions in the Pub Quiz are:

  1. Which country I am describing in the year it joined the EU? Is the poorest European nation – incomes slipping behind its European competitors by £185 per year. Regular power cuts.
  2. In 2015 who was richer? The average person in German, France and Italy or England, Scotland and Wales?
  3. What caused Britain’s improved performance?
  4. How has Britain’s membership of the EU improved economic performance?
  5. Has the EU made Britain richer?

Basically the answers suggest that EU membership has been very beneficial to the British economy.
