From €50 billion to suddenly €100 billion overnight :shock:

Well that is one way to plug the funding gap after the EU loses one of its big contributors I suppose.

UK must pays its share of EU liabilities but does not get a share of EU assets it has contributed to for years. EU gets to keep UK's kids too?

Is there legislation anywhere relating to this or are these figures just made up by the EU as they go along


Brussels hoists gross Brexit

Fear not, Piesters, the Vicars Daughter is "a bloody difficult woman" and she will put manners on the lot of them.

OOh, Matron.

You leave your golf club you don't get to keep a percentage of the assets you helped build but still have to settle your tab. This is life

This is about the French and German elections. When both are out of the way we can take what they say more seriously. The UK is a net contributor to the EU and now they want more.

Angela Merkel does a Margaret Thatcher now: She wants her money back.

As I understand it the Brits don't deny the liability per say, they just don't believe that there is a mechanism in Art 50 to bill them for it. The EU disagree and take the position of use your cop.

Well doubling the stakes usually means you are bluffing, or that your hand is so unassailable and the other player is already so deeply committed that they must fold and leave you the pot.

There must be some sort of plan B in place if that happens at this early stage, mustn't there?

You settle your tab for the time you were in the club until the time you leave, not several years after you've left.

The fact that you leaving doesn't suit the golf club's 7-year budget plan is their problem.

£100bn is such crazy money it's simply not worth it.

Theresa May will be banned from sitting in on Brexit talks - as the EU has upped Britain's divorce bill to £92billion by seeking farm payments for two years after the process formally ends.

It follows the Prime Minister's promise to be 'bloody difficult' in the negotiations, as tensions between the two sides continue to be strained.

She will now only be allowed to discuss terms with the European Commisison's top negotiator, Michel Barnier, but not other heads of state, according to The Times. (Pay-wall, I know).


"It is not going to be a negotiation around a table between heads of state and government," a source said.
"It was very awkward. We thought David [Davis] was in charge."

It's not at all like leaving your golf club according to Juncker.

It is if you committed to donating to the fund for the new bunker on the 7th and ordered new clubs.

Juncker is a polarising influence in the negotiations and needs to go. The Commission Presidents have historically been polarising figures including Delors.

What bit does Tessa not understand?

She will get nothing without paying her outstanding bill, and what she gets then wont be SM terms unless she pays for the privilege of SM access, like Norway does.

Piesters are like children who have never settled a contract in their lives. You think you just walk away without the bailiffs coming round?

We committed to meeting our obligations for as long as we were members.

In less than two years we will no longer be members.

I am not a aware of any golf club which requires its members to commit to funding new facilities in the future in advance and insists you still pay if you leave.

Outstanding bills are for services already received. Not for services which you will not be using in the future.

The EU is no golf club. Your comparism is fundamentally flawed.

The movement of people and goods around the EU is a fooking joke anyway, Merkel laughs at the victims of her criminal decision, Hollandes party got 6% in the primary the other week and a Tory prime minister is on the cusp of wiping out labour clowns like Dianne Abbot and Corbyn ?

Is it democracy or not that is at stake after Lisbon 2 and the madness of German and French banks leading up to the crash ?

This is a big bluff game and the EU mandarins know if the Brits pull it off their power will be fooked on the world stage.
