Sugaring the Pill

The IHT has a terrible idea for making the EU more acceptable to the likes of me:
The European Union devotes just €130 million, a year to its culture and media programs. The new cultural lobby wants the budget tripled, with the new funds devoted largely to spreading Europe's cultures within Europe. For many Euro-skeptics, greater cultural affinity may sugar the pill of political and economic unity.
Eurosceptics often rail against the utter waste of Money and the propagandist approach of the EU. Large sums of money spent on projects to Spread Europe's cultures within Europe are hardly going to impress us. It is true that we share a rich cultural heritage, how that relates to European MEPs having the right to tell me how many hours I can work is a little beyond my comprehension.
