Government Offers upto £50 Billion in Brexit Divorce Settlement

The BBC has reported that the Cabinet has agreed to a figure in the region of £50 billion to be offered as part of the UK’s divorce settlement from the European Union. The payment would be made as a compromise but would likely be reliant on securing a favourable trading agreement.

The EU and the British Government refused to comment on the speculation, but it is thought that it will be made apparent over the next few weeks if progress in the Brexit negotiations has been made.
