Brexit: Boris Johnson on UK paying any exit bill to EU

0

The European Union can “go whistle” for any “extortionate” final payment from the UK, the foreign secretary has said.

Boris Johnson re-used a phrase from Conservative MP Philip Hollobone, who said the UK had paid Brussels £209bn – in today’s money – for EU membership over the years.

Mr Johnson said: “‘Go whistle’ seems to me to be an entirely appropriate expression.”
