Ridiculous demand by the EU

The EU divorce bill is a ridiculous demand and should not be paid. It is predicated by the fact the UK owes financial commitments to the EU. This is despite it being a net contributor to the European project.

With the UK providing 16% of the EU’s budget, and with no plans to slash spending on the part of the European Union (or even consider the UK leaving the EU in future projections), the UK should demand comprehensive trade talks before paying, instead of paying for the trade talks themselves which may fall through.

The UK can borrow at a low interest rate and so economically would be better off paying an amount of money which guarantees a favourable free trade deal is in place. The UK should not pay an extortionate amount of money, just so the EU can continue its current levels of spending, with nothing in return guaranteed.
