Boris Johnson and Michael Gove have agreed for the first time that Britain should increase its Brexit divorce bill offer above £20 billion if the EU is prepared to make concessions in return.
As one commentator noted – “…please note that since joining the EEC/EU in 1973 the UK has LOST well over £1 trillion in trading with the EU. This is the current total of the DEFICIT that the UK has accumulated since 1973. Over the same period of time the UK has accumulated a SURPLUS of £245 billion while trading with the rest of the world. The EU demand for a BRIBE of £58 billion or thereabouts of UK taxpayers money before they will even start to talk about more loss making trade with them is therefore OBSCENE and so is… apparent support for the EU which is against the will of the majority of the UK population.” JW
