    Default Mad ex demands more money

    Davis DISMISSES EU demand for £92bn Brexit divorce bill | Daily Mail Online

    'We won't pay': David Davis DISMISSES Brussels demand for £92billion after Germany, France and Poland gang up to DOUBLE the Brexit divorce bill
    Tensions are rising even before the Brexit negotiations formally get under way
    Brussels has upped divorce bill demand from around £50bn to around £92bn
    Germany, France and Poland said to have boosted sum to include farm subsidies
    Brexit Secretary David Davis flatly dismissed the idea we could pay £92bn

    The increase is said to be down to the inclusion of farming subsidies, while Brussels is likely to say the UK is not entitled to a share of the EU's assets, such as buildings.

    Amid rising tensions, Theresa May vowed last night that she will be a 'bloody difficult woman' if Mr Juncker tries to thwart a good Brexit deal.

    But it also emerged that the EU is trying to ban Mrs May from sitting in on Brexit talks.

    HOW THE EU WANTS TO INFLATE THE BREXIT DIVORCE BILL

    The latest salvo from the EU comes as their view of what the divorce bill should include comes into focus.

    The bloc insists that the UK should keep paying into its coffers until 2020 - after we formally leave - because that is when budgets have been set until.

    Member states have also been piling charges into the pot as they realise the scale of the hole about to be left in the EU's finances.

    Britain is the second biggest contributor to Brussels, and among only a handful of countries that pay more than they receive.

    The new figure, calculated by the Financial Times, has been inflated with the inclusion of farm subsidy payments and EU administration fees in 2019 and 2020. The UK would also be expected to fund loans to poorer EU states.

    Germany is said to have been pushing for Britain to be denied a share of the bloc's assets, such as buildings, which could have brought the sum down.

    Other costs include generous pensions for thousands of Eurocrats.

    Although the €100billion total would be payable up front, some of the money would be expected to come back over the decades.

    Officials are insisting she can only discuss terms with the Mr Barnier, not other heads of state, according to The Times.
    oh dear.

    Once again the Fail writes crap to stir up anti-Europe feelings. You may have noticed in the dross they wrote:

    The £92billion (€100bn) has been calculated by the FT by analysing the EU's own demands - but in December EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker said the bill would be around £42billion (€50bn).
    Basically a figure created by another newspaper, not the EU
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    If UK doesn't pay all EU subsidies flowing into the UK should be stopped immediately as well.

    Agreed. The UK will stop paying the EU and vica versa.

    £8bn a year saved.

    A few billion here, a few billion there. It soon adds up to a sizeable amount.

    don't forget we want 20% of the assets based on our contribution over the years. But being the weaker party we should have half in a Divorce.

    Maybe the EU being in the Stronger position we should get maintenance payments as part of the Divorce?

    By poor do you mean Wandswoth aspiring to Chelsea?

    There is already a huge imbalance. Brexit was always going to increase the imbalance.

    I think a lot of the protest votes were wasted.
