In a revelation that is absurd beyond belief, the European Union is apparently preparing to take the UK to court if the government don’t dish them out £50 billion on the way out of the failed bloc.
A leaked copy of the EU’s negotiation strategy talks of taking Brexit Britain to the International Court of Justice in the Hague.
That is despite government lawyers and a report in the House of Lords concluding that no payment is necessary.
Several Tory MPs such as Sir Bill Cash and Jacob Rees Megg have dismissed the hollow threat to bully the UK into handing over large amounts of money to Brussels.
As we have been saying for a while now, the EU nationalists may attempt to make an example out of Britain for daring to leave. If that’s the case, the government should tell them where to stick it and walk out to independence way before the two year Article 50 process is up.
