BBC Receives £71,000 Of Secret EU Cash Each Month
By Miles Goslett
The BBC receives an average of £71,000 per month in secret handouts from the EU.
A spokesman said the grants were used “mainly for research and development” projects.
With the EU referendum taking place next month, Heat Street asked how much EU cash the BBC has received over the last 9 months.
The spokesman refused to disclose these details.
Thanks to a Freedom of Information request made by Heat Street last October, it is known that between April and September 2015 the BBC applied for and was given £476,000.
This was on top of £878,000 in 2013/14 and £778,000 in 2014/15 – an average of £71,000 over 30 months.
As far as Heat Street can tell, the Brussels-backed windfall is not explicitly referred to in the BBC’s annual report, on its website, in any press releases, or on any other BBC information outlet, leaving TV licence fee payers in the dark about the grants.
Now MPs fear the BBC’s cosy relationship with the EU could lead to bias in its referendum coverage.
On June 21 the BBC will host an EU debate at Wembley Arena.
BBC insiders said bosses were “worried” about its receipt of EU funds becoming an issue before the referendum on June 23, which may explain its reluctance to reveal how much money it has accepted since last September.
Pro-Brexit Tory MP Philip Davies told Heat Street: “If the BBC applies for and receives millions of pounds from the EU but doesn’t admit this in its accounts, how can we be sure it will report on the EU referendum in an objective way?”
He added: “Why on earth is the BBC, with guaranteed annual income of almost £4 billion, applying for any money from the EU anyway? Whether it accepted £1 or £1 million, it cannot claim to be politically neutral. It should be forced to declare this interest to its viewers and listeners whenever it is reporting anything related to the EU referendum.”
The BBC claims none of the money found its way into its editorial budget.
A spokesman said: “The BBC protects its impartiality by not permitting any external funding for news programming, which includes European Union grants. Each year the BBC publishes details of any grants we receive, of which a very small proportion have come from the European Union, mainly to fund research and development.”

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain having only 8%, if united, say. The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy; yet The EU & many of its vassal States are willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States to impose The EU’s chosen brand of democracy on them!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.
There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, when we leave the EU, using a better negotiated & updated version of the ‘Norway Model’ as a stepping stone to becoming a full member of the Eropean Economic Area, where all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU’s vassal regions, with an EFTA style status and can trade and negotiate independently on the global stage, as members of The Commonwealth and the Anglosphere.One huge benefit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly in our own interest and that of our partners around the world in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and term imposed by unelected EU bureacrats and their ionterpretation of the rules handed down as if they were some great achievement by the EU.The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
