Since we joined the common market on 1 January 1973 until the day we leave, we will have given the EU and its predecessors, in today’s money, in real terms, a total of £209bn.
Will you make it clear to the EU that if they want a penny piece more then they can go whistle?
As the self-appointed leader of the Eurosceptics and one of the primary forces of the Leave campaign, Johnson echoed Hollobone's thoughts.
I’m sure that your words will have broken like a thunderclap over Brussels and they will pay attention to what you have said.
He makes a very valid point and I think that the sums that I have seen that they propose to demand from this country seem to me to be extortionate and I think ‘to go whistle’ is an entirely appropriate expression.
However, it appears that the Conservatives leader and Prime Minister doesn't quite agree with Mr. Johnson.
A story in the The Sunday Timesreveals Theresa May is alledgedly working on a secret £50 billion Brexit bill in order to kick start trade talks with the EU.
The report states that she wishes to put the bill in place after the Tory conference in October, which could cause huge repercussion in the already fractured party.
If the deal were to go ahead it would see Britain pay between £7bn and £17bn a year to Brussels in the three years after Brexit finally comes into being.
