£50bn to leave the EU. What an unforgivable waste of money | Jonathan Freedland | Opinion | The Guardian
For let’s remind ourselves of the basic truth here. We’ll be paying this money for the privilege of not being in the European club. Cabinet minister Chris Grayling this morning tried to defend the bill by contrasting it with the billions the UK currently sends to Brussels. But there’s a big difference, Chris. We get something for those billions. Now we’ll be forking out £50bn for nothing, for the right to sit in splendid isolation – cut off from our closest neighbours, trading with them on inferior terms that will cost us dear.
