Headline reads:

“EU could slash UK’s funding if we don’t take more migrants”

John Stevens, Brussels correspondent, claims that the European Union (EU) has threatened to cut funding for the UK unless they take in more refugees. In reality, the EU Commission wants to increase grants to countries that accept the most refugees, therefore not affecting overall funding to the UK. A misleading and inaccurate representation of the EU’s budgetary operations.
