BRITISH taxpayers will pay an eye watering £91bn to the EU before the country finally leaves the beleaguered institution.


The UK will pay £91bn to the EU as Brexit negotiations are yet to begin

The shocking figures released to by the Treasury have hastened calls for the triggering of Article 50 after a UK White Paper highlighted widespread fraud in the failing administration.

Taxpayers are being asked to send £20bn gross to the EU this year alone while the Treasury has committed to sending a further £71bn until 2020.

And astonishingly, according to the Office of Budget responsibility figures, the UK will only get a rebate of £30bn meaning £61bn will be sent to Europe while Britain tries to negotiate its exit.

A total of 1,609 irregularities were reported as fraudulent, of which 976 were related to expenditure and 633 were related to revenue

UK Treasury White Paper

Prime Minister Theresa May this week introduced a self imposed deadline of March next year to trigger Article 50 and only at that point will the negotiations to leave be entered into by Brussels.

But the taxpayer will still be forced to make the payments to Brussels while at the same time public services are crumbling and immigration is at record levels.

All indications show that Britain will not be able to leave the EU until at least 2019 with some projections even leaning towards a decade from now.
