The high cost of EU subsidies

Washington Post:
After voting for Brexit, this county’s residents suddenly realize Europe might stop sending money

The county gets more than $82 million annually in European subsidies that help finance infrastructure projects and education schemes.
That money is a pittance compared to what the country sends to the EU every year.  The UK pays the EU about 12.9 billion pounds a year which works out to 35 million pounds a day.  The country would more than recoups the "subsidies" in less than three days.
