National flags seem to be a thing of the past!

RED tape generated by Brussels bureaucrats costs every British household more than £1,000 a year.

It represents an annual burden of £27.4billion for the British economy, says research out today.

Some of the costliest regulations from Brussels impose pointless environmental rules and bureaucracy that strangles our banks or harms agency workers.

The figures – which add more weight to the Daily Express Crusade to get Britain out of the EU – were calculated by the think tank Open Europe.

It said that without laws such as the working time regulations, which cost £4.1billion a year, the Government could slash the Budget deficit.

The think tank conceded that some regulations were beneficial for the UK, but argued that many laws originating in Brussels were overly prescriptive and burdensome.
