(Worthy News) - Britain is prepared to pay up to 40 billion euros ($47 billion) as part of a deal to leave the European Union, the Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported, citing three unnamed sources familiar with Britain's negotiating strategy.

The European Union has floated a figure of 60 billion euros and wants significant progress on settling Britain's liabilities before talks can start on complex issues such as future trading arrangements.

The government department responsible for Brexit talks declined to comment on the Sunday Telegraph article. So far, Britain has given no official indication of how much it would be willing to pay.

  1. I am glad your map shows Northern Ireland as part of the UK (a lot of Americans don't really get that concept) , Any how the sooner the UK get article 50 signed the better, but the EU have contempt towards the UK because it has a back bone. It always saw the UK as a cash cow, but it doesn't really share the same values as the UK, as an English speaking nation the UK is closer top the US culturally, and politically, than to the rest of Europe.

  2. This really sounds like extortion to me. Maybe they should have set the monetary figure to leave the E.U. when the E.U. was being set up. This is more like a punishment, but better to leave while you can anyway.
