    I'm very please for them. We do too so they can go and do one.

    But we already know that British NHS won't get promised £350 mln per week and British Brexit voters seem to be fine with that, EU however ain't mugs and they'll get their money in full, with interest, with aggravation penalty and full legal fees with bells on.

    Er, Germany doesn't have an NHS and the UK soon won't have one, it'll be the USA HS (actually a lot of it is already owned by American companies) so I suspect the 'imaginary' £350 will actually be used to pay people extra health benefits so they can afford to get ill
    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    WRT the EU where's the small print that says if you leave we'll invent a figure, which we can't justify, that you'll pay and you'll also lose the benefit of payments already made? A big F Off is required here methinks

    It is more on the order of "exiting" a 100 year mortgage early. Telling the bank that I'm leaving them and that I won't make good on the mortgage is not an option.

    Part of the obligation is the EU pensions for UK staff working there. You don't want to deprive Nige of his lifetime EU pension, do you?

    It always an option actually, just whoever does it should not be surprised if the bank wants to apply some penalties, possibly getting your legs broken...

    No, that would be cherry picking - best plans ain't available on cheap PAYG basis for a reason.
    Why do bremainers try to pick the most absurd analogy?

    If its a Mortgage at the end I will own a property or have some equity So the EU can give me some property & cash when I sell up.

    If its a Golf course then when I leave after giving required notice (Article 50) I stop paying unless the terms of notice include a defined leaving fee.

    etc.

    Nice banks you deal with.

    Mine just require decent notice and they give me back any equity, if as it appears the EU is worth less than I borrowed then I might owe them. Now is the EU essentially worthless as we all suspect???
