A report in the the Financial Times (gated, but can be read with a free registration): EU tells Britain to pay extra €2.1bn

  • Britain has been told to pay an extra €2.1bn to the EU budget within weeks on account of its relative prosperity
  • “A hefty surcharge”
  • To compensate for its economy performing better than other EU countries since 1995, the UK will have to make a top-up payment on December 1
  • France, meanwhile, will receive a €1bn rebate, according to Brussels calculations seen by the Financial Times

This should be fun. Tell me again, when does Britain leave the EU?
