Reports that the Chancellor, Phillip Hammond, in budget week, is considering doubling his previous proposed Brexit bill to £40 billion is an outrage.


William Dartmouth the UKIP Trade Spokesman responded, “The European Union wants our money.They are plucking figures out of the air in the hope we will cover their future budget plans.

“These figures change week to week and range from £100 bill to £60 billion.

“As a qualified chartered accountant I would remind Mrs May that a budget is just a budget-a projection or an aspiration..

“By raising our Brexit bill to satisfy the EU perhaps Mrs May should remember the words of Lennon/McCartney “Money can’t buy you love”.
