LBC host Nigel Farage savaged the EU for their attempt to financially cripple the UK and keep us hostage over Brexit
During his LBC show, Mr Farage said: “It’s rather like a ransom: they’re treating us like we’re a hostage.
“We’re not a hostage. We are free to go. We’re free to simply walk away.
“I don’t want it to come to that but unless they’re prepared to compromise then I just don’t see quite what David Davis can do.”
He said: “The speculation began that it was gonna be €50bn…but there’s no itemisation whatsoever.”
The EU is commited to billing the UK more than £80 billion as some kind of ‘divorce bill’, however, the UK government has said through Boris Johnson has told them to ‘Go Whistle’
Farage told the Express.co.uk: “She can go jump. To ask the UK to pay a Brexit bill without agreement on free trade deal is tantamount to blackmail.
“Their make-believe Brexit bill has no legal basis whatsoever and the EU knows it.”
