Redwood on Brexit divorce bill: ‘We don’t owe them any money. There is no legal need to offer them anything’

Conservative MP John Redwood has dismissed suggestions that Britain would have to pay a multi-Billion pound Brexit ‘divorce bill’, saying:

‘We have absolutely no need to pay them a penny’.

‘Ministers would be quite wrong to be talking about any figures – we don’t owe them any money’.

‘The EU’s tactic is very clear. It’s divide and rule to try and get Britain negotiating with herself’.

‘They have been very successful because various people in Britain who clearly don’t have Britain’s interests at heart, brief newspapers to say that we must make compromises and sacrifices’.

‘That is a good way to undermine the British position, but there is absolutely no legal need or political need to offer anything at all’.

  1. The man is an idiot and didn’t understand the situation. He probably means that the UK could theoretically refuse to be bound by any international court, so cannot be forced to pay what it has committed to paying. This would not send a good message to prospective new trading partners.
