In this YouTube video shows clips of Jacob Rees-Mogg.

At 6:55, he is shown hosting an LBC talkback show, talking about EU funding. He claims:

You don't get money from the EU unless you sign up to a contract saying that you won't do anything that damages the reputation of the EU.

Is that true?

    Sounds like a fairly common stipulation. Is it supposed to be controversial? Apr 3, 2019 at 8:44
