The EU has reportedly raised the price of the Brexit ‘divorce bill’ to approximately £85 billion, after France and Germany made a new series of demands.
These include farming subsidies and EU administration fees, which may have to be paid for several years after Britain officially leaves.
This bill is likely to be an opening bid with room for negotiations, something which Theresa May seems prepared to do, having yesterday said that Jean-Claude Juncker would discover that she is a ‘bloody difficult woman’
If the EU insists the bill be paid in full, many would urge the Prime Minister to walk away, and she herself has said that ‘no deal in better than a bad deal’.
