Rubbish. Succesive UK Govenments have shown utter incompetence in properly funding regions outside of the South East. EU money has been spent in areas Westminster doesn't care about. It's spent on youth projects, infrastructure, business parks, start ups.
Look at the numbers, provided by this govenment on what regional spending will be after EU funding is withdrawn!! Lets use Wales as an example: https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wale ... s-16405082
See, the very people who voted strongest for Brexit will be hit the hardest. That has always been factually correct, and the Govenments own funding figures show it to be true going forward as well.
We are incapable of a nation of spending money properly, and most of the candidates for PM have a history of being utterly useless with budgets and numbers.
EU money is spent on areas, without influence from UK politicans on areas that need it. It works, and works well.
