Commenting on an NAO report confirming the cost of the Brexit ‘divorce’, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
“Boris Johnson’s claim that the EU can ‘go whistle’ over a divorce bill looks, even by his standards, to be a piece of particularly bilious buffoonery.
"The NAO have confirmed the cost of divorce, whilst likely to be in the Government’s stated range of £35 billion to £39 billion, could be higher. And the UK’s contribution to the EU Pension scheme could continue until 2064.
"This news reinforces the case for a public vote on the final deal.”
