Boris on the Brexit divorce bill: ‘We will meet our obligations. We are law-abiding, bill-paying people’

After previously telling the EU to ‘go whistle’, foreign secretary Boris Johnson has said that the UK will pay the so-called ‘Brexit divorce bill’, although he has insisted the proposed payment of £100 billion is ‘not a figure I recognise’.

Speaking to BBC radio, Mr. Johnson said:

‘I am not saying I accept Mr. Barnier’s interpretation of what our obligations are. I am certainly saying we have to meet our legal obligations as we understand them. That is what the British people would expect’.

‘This is a matter for our excellent negotiators and you want them to get the best possible value for the UK taxpayer. We should pay not a penny more, not a penny less of what we think our legal obligations amount to’.

‘We will meet our obligations. We are law-abiding, bill-paying people’.
