The European Commission has put together the smart video above about the EU budget. Clearly professionally filmed and produced, I wonder whether it will it will convince anyone about the merits of the budget? Yes, OK, it’s 1% of EU GNI, that’s all very well. It’s decided in a transparent way. Good. But the problem is what the money is spent on (and the fact this this is so incredibly slow to change) – that’s down to administrative complexity.
Also isn’t a young woman doing some cooking a rather gender specific way to approach this?
Anyway, I am glad at least that the Commission is trying in part to set out how the budget works and using a reasonable video to do this. The video has only 1500 views at the time of writing – it should get more than that at least.
@erikwesselius on Twitter has pointed out this video – more balanced, but probably with a lower budget to film it.
