    Default Potential €20bn a year Hole in EU Budget.

    Britain’s withdrawal from the EU could leave the remaining 27 countries with a €20bn a year hole in their budget, requiring additional EU taxes to fill the gap, the European commission has said.

    Günther Oettinger, the European commissioner for the budget, said the loss to the bloc had to be acknowledged, and big decisions made about the scale of the its ambitions after March 2019.

    “We won’t have the UK with us any more, but they were net payers despite the Thatcher rebate, so we will have a gap of €10bn-€11bn a year,” the German official said.


    Writing in a separate blog, Oettinger said the need to finance new initiatives in areas such as defence and security meant “the total gap could therefore be up to twice as much”.

    Hopefully they will cut bureaucracy then there be no issue. If they agree the best Brexit deal for the EU, rather than one designed to punish the UK, then everyones a winner.

    Yes, and here we see the REAL reason that they are going to try and make it difficult for us to LEAVE!!

    Thats 50% of it. The other 50% is that once the UK makes a success of it then everyone else will want to go.

    By what mechanism do you expect the British economy to make a success of Brexit?
    Exporting high-quality manufactured goods in volume like Germany?
    Providing services to India and China?

    Do explain.
    Hard Brexit now!
