First read this & you will see what I mean:
The EU tries to hijack The King’s Speech
“European Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou has welcomed the major success of EU-backed film ‘The King’s Speech’, which was crowned with four Oscars at last night’s 83rd Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood. The film, which received €562 000 in distribution support from the EU MEDIA fund for cinema, scooped the big prizes for Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Actor (Colin Firth) and best original screenplay (David Seidler)”

Now read the truth:

“The King’s Speech did not of course receive a single Euro from Brussels in production funds. It is an entirely British-made and funded film, receiving funds from the Aegis Film Fund, a consortium of private investors, and from the UK Film Council.

The European Union’s sad attempt to hijack the success of The King’ Speech is little short of embarrassing, even by the low standards of the European Commission. As I’ve noted previously, The King’s Speech is a quintessentially British film, whose success on both sides of the Atlantic is a testament to the enduring strength of the partnership between Great Britain and the United States, which is hugely evident in the film industry today. The King’s Speech is not a “European” film, and certainly does not owe its success in any way to unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats sitting in Brussels, with a penchant for spending taxpayers’ money on printing ridiculous propaganda.”
