Peter Bone rubbished the claims that the UK will have to pay tens of billions of pounds to leave the UK
Mr Bone said: “Yes, we’re coming out of the EU – whether that’s a divorce, I don’t think we were quite married to the EU.
“But to pay them any money is ridiculous, I want to know how much money they are going to pay us, because we’ve subsidised the European Union and its predecessor to the tune of more than £200bn – that’s the net contribution we’ve paid.
“We’re a direct subsidy to them, the idea we would have to pay them anything is bizarre and I can’t see any act or treaty where it is a requirement.”
The EU is determined to bill the UK as much as possible, despite us being a net contributor to their failing project.
Boris Johnson famously told the EU to ‘Go Whistle’ over the £92 billion bill figure.
