UKIP MEP for Harlow expresses anger at EU “£45 billion divorce bill”

Politics / Tue 28th Nov 2017 at 11:01pm



UKIP MEP and councillor for Aveley, Tim Aker has expressed his anger at the most recent round of negotiations as Britain aims to leave the European Union.

It comes as the government has offered to give the EU an “eye-watering sum” of at least €45 billion if not more.

Cllr Tim Aker MEP said: “Theresa May and the Conservative Party have bottled it, rather than going to the EU and talking up the UK they have been taken for a ride.

“The future of the UK was incredibly positive outside the EU but arch-remainer Theresa May has done everything in her power to ruin it.

“Theresa May should do the decent thing and resign as she clearly has no idea what she is doing. She lost the respect of her party when she lost her majority at the General Election and now she has lost the respect of everyone in the country by bowing to the EU.”

Tim is bang on as usual! The trouble is we have a majority of Remain MPs in our House of Commons who are obsessed with ignoring the will of the people. Paying these ridiculous sums have a massive knock on effect on the availability of funds for other public services that are desperately underfunded like the NHS. Maybe that bus slogan wasn't so daft after all.....!

Our politicians are weak. Billions to the EU, Billions in foreign aid. I was they would just get on with it and start put our people's interests first.

Both sides of the referendum told lies, neither side had any idea what would happen if we came of the EU. Who knows, there may well be some positives that come from it BUT we can be absolutely certain that nothing about this process is simple. We signed up to the rules which meant we had to sort out the financial commitments first before we talk trade and we are doing that because if we will destroy our economy and really hurt other countries in the process. The government are handling Brexit just awfully and we are an international joke but whats really sad is that while our society falls apart the government has to dedicate all its time, effort and money to making this exit less self harmful.
