EU Buffoonery: Brexit Divorce Bill Upped to €100 Billion

•, Mish

France and Poland want to include agricultural subsidies and Germany proposes the UK should get nothing for assets such as buildings.

This is such a nonstarter that even the most diehard deal proponents ought to be shaking their heads.

Some of this is tit-for-tat gamesmanship involves Brexit leaks in which EC president Jean-Claude Juncker informed Angela Merkel that "Theresa May Lives in a Different Galaxy".

That phone call came following a meeting last Wednesday when Theresa May told Juncker the UK has no legal obligation to pay the EU a Brexit divorce bill. Juncker also stated he is "ten times more skeptical than before."

These statements were leaked to the press, most likely by Juncker or his staff.

Regardless, I fail to see how widening differences is remotely conducive to serious negotiations.
