Speaking a day after the Brexit talks were described as “deadlocked” by the EU’s chief negotiator, Jean-Claude Juncker accused the UK being unwilling to compromise over the divorce bill.
Juncker insisted the British “have to pay” if they want talks to begin on a future trade deal between the UK and the EU.
The war cost Britain about £120 billion in 1945. In today's money that equates to about £4,200 billion. A considerable amount of this sum was spent initially trying to defend you and other now EU countries from the Germans which you failed to do yourselves. A further sum was spent freeing present EU countries from German occupation, again which you failed to do your yourselves.
Could you please let us have your proposals as to what you think is your and the other EU countries fair share of these costs? As an initial figure, we would put it at no less than £750 billion.
Please inform us as to how and when you intend to repay this amount as soon as possible.
Best Wishes from the UK.
