    Its only a shame Europhiles like him were not so bothered about the British public being mislead when we were told we were only joining a trading bloc.

    Kerr's a EU fanatic whose claim to fame is its his name on a bit of text written by a team he chaired: but you'll never get anywhere on here if you keep bringing up the truth - the resident moaners will find some other selective out of context quote.

    Re: Article 50

    Once again the EU's chief negotiator Michael Barnier has said that the UK has to say what it will pay to settle our obligations before talks can move on to trade and future relationship. Surely I can't be the only one wondering how this is still going on and hasn't been resolved yet. Theresa May has said that we will honour our commitments and pay what we owe. How can it have taken 6 months and this hasn't been resolved. Both sides must know what projects etc we have agreed to fund so there shouldn't be any argument about the amount owed.

    The EU appear to be demanding different amounts depending on what day it is. If they had any basis for their claims then they should be able to produce an itemised invoice showing how much we owe and what it's for rather than their current approach which appears to be simply to see how much they can screw out of the UK. Would love for David Davis to simply tell the EU that we aren't going to hold any more talks until the EU provide such an invoice. Put the ball back in their court and show that we aren't going to be walked all over in the negotiations.

    How about the truth of your big red bus and Farage and desperate wannabee PM Bojo and the lies emblazoned across it? But hey keep bringing up the 'truth' whilst the country goes back to the 1970s.
    Going to fund the NHS all that cash are we after we've paid a £60 million divorce bill (that we probably owe). Going to trade with Zambia or Laos are we instead of Holland or France? We'll show em eh?

    WAKE UP!

    Truth?...You can't handle the truth!

    Deal. We'll take it. I'm assuming that should have been a "b" rather than an "m".

    I'd have no problem with us paying a £60 billion bill to leave the EU if that's what we owe and we could see an actual bill that shows why we owe it. In simple terms if you went out for a meal and at the end of it the waiter said "You owe us £150" would you just pay it without asking to see the bill for why that's the amount you owe.

    The ploy is quite transparent. The EU team want to see how much we’ll stump up for a trade agreement, whilst using the excuse it’s for outstanding commitments. We know there are outstanding commitments and have said we’ll honour them. It’s pure cynicism by the EU team.
    Give it big humpties

    You don't even remember what colour the bus was but I like the cheap divorce bill payment.

    Re: Article 50

    So Davis guarantees Parliament a final say (vote) on the withdrawal agreement. Big concession. Got to be good news wrt scrutiny of what we're potentially getting into and a safeguard against a hard-right no deal cliff-edge brexit. Economy and jobs has to come first.

    Progress at least.
