    17 million Brexiters should be paying through their PAYE.
    Lawyers will need to be paid - but this is like a maintenance and severance package.

    I don't mind paying a fair amount, it is the UK leaving the club, but punitive sums are unacceptable.

    well as the Club is so great and has such massive value above the membership after all it is regularly likened to a Golf Club we should get a decent portion of that value back.

    So really as we have been paying loads in I suggest we get the first 6 holes & a third of the Clubhouse!


    We will give you a third of the Golfpro shop to cover important stuff like Junket's pension,

    Sorted, can you send the cheque when we trigger article 50 please.

    It is only punitive because the UK has signed up for a number of long-term commitments as an EU member - projects and initiatives that will continue long after the UK has left, and where contributions from the UK were meant to be collected annually. Now the EU will naturally want payment of any remaining commitments up front.

    You'll need to explain in terms that those dullards can understand, ie:

    UK signed up for 24 month Sky contract, it can't "exit" in the middle without paying for the remainder of the minimum contract.

    So that's nearly a grand for each resident of UK, probably more since the bill will in in EUR

    Again - I don't have an issue with this - we should see out our financial obligations in this funding tranche (5-6 years?). I would expect that if this is funding things like R&D we should benefit until we cease payment.

    What I do have an issue with is an extra charge for cancelling the policy early.

    I am also content to pay per view - to access the odd product on offer. But if the cost is too much I won't bother.

    Have you tried to cancel your mortgage early, before finishing repayments? The bank might have an issue with it.

    No, that would be cherry picking - best plans ain't available on cheap PAYG basis for a reason.

    Yes we can and what are they going to do about it? When they present a properly audited set of accounts we may well ask for our share of the assets back so they should give us $50Billion++
