Juncker: UK will have to pay EU around £50 billion

Following on from comments by Germany’s EU Commissioner, EU President Jean-Claude Juncker has confirmed that Brussels will attempt to bill the UK for around £50 billion.

Juncker’s stance is based on deterring other countries from leaving the European Union.

Speaking to the BBC, though Juncker insisted he is not in a hostile mood, it is hard to see how this can be interpreted as anything other than an obscene, ridiculous demand.

If the EU want to play hard ball, the Prime Minister should take us out of the EU with no deal.
