David Miliband has reportedly announced that a wide range of NGOs (Non Governmental Organisations) all fully supported the Bill to ratify the Lisbon Treaty. It has now been disclosed (much to their intense annoyance) that the EU provide funding for a wide range of these NGOs including NSPCC, One World Action, Action Aid, Oxfam, Friends of the Earth and many more.
It is important to know that the EU will only fund activities that 'further the aims of the EU Agenda'. While this may well be quite reasonable (why, indeed, should they fund those that are not supporters of their aims) it is quite unreasonable that this funding should be kept secret.
It is important that we are aware of the implicit pressure placed on these NGOs to support the EU Agenda if they wish to continue to receive this funding.
