EU pours £3.8bn into 'brainwashing campaign'
Join the Telegraph campaign for an EU referendum

The European Union is spending £3.8 billion a year on "propaganda" to win over its sceptical citizens, it is claimed.

According to Lee Rotherham, the author of a new book which examines the EU's spending on its image, such initiatives are an "outrageous and cynical attempt to brainwash the young". The Europa Diary, a gift from the EU to schoolchildren, is one example cited by Mr Rotherham in Hearts & Minds: the Tax-funded PR Campaign to Make us Love Brussels.
