EU Trying to Tie Billions in Debt to Brexit

flag

Britain’s multi-billion pound Brexit divorce bill could rise even further because of Brussels’ spending commitments.

European Union spending promises and pension costs have risen by billions in the past year, which means Britain could get a bigger leaving bill.

The EU’s auditor has said member countries’ annual budget fees are ‘moveable’, because they are linked to commitments that could change.

Currently the UK says it will pay £39 billion – which it has described as ‘reasonable’ – to leave the EU when it ends its membership next March.

It comes amid reports that Prime Minister Theresa May has said France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, believes he can stop Brexit altogether.
