Abstract

The EU commission has just quietly published its 2017 accounts. About just over a week ago, they slipped out. Did you spot that? No? Well….very few did.

John has spent the last week or so here at the Centre for Brexit Studies at BCU pouring over them. And we think that if you look closely at the boring bits, something of a bomblet is contained. The Brexit bill has just soared upwards. And the UK needs now to ask some tough questions of the EU Commission about their figures – questions which, to be frank, the Treasury and our negotiators should have been asking a long time ago.
