But no longer have to pay subs. Especially when the subs were so high compared to other members.

But you still have to pay the subs you owe, otherwise other clubs won't let you in.

You leave a club,you don't get the benefits...

Leaving the club is one thing. But that club being so petty is another. I wouldn't expect to have all the benefits after leaving. But a mutually beneficial relationship would suit both sides is.

Why should non members get the same deal as members?

Do you Brexiteers have a special facebook page or crank US website where you get all your fake news from?

 

The UK is the second largest economy in the EU but pays the eighth highest contribution. This means that six countries with smaller GDPs than us pay in more.

 

Yet another widely believed lie from the leave campain, that discredits the 2016 vote.

We are third highest  on the list, behind Spain and Germany.  But this is ignored by remoaners, as is the revelation that the UK pays more into the EU budget than it gets back. In 2017 the UK government paid £13 billion to the EU budget, and EU spending on the UK was forecast to be £4 billion. So the UK's 'net contribution' was estimated at nearly £9 billion. I would say that's a pretty hefty sum, unless you want to say this is a lie too.

Since when was that a revelation? 

 

The whole point of EU economic strategy is to reduce the differences between all EU states and make us all richer. That means the strongest economies pay more, the weaker ones receive more. Redistribution of wealth on an international level. That's why Trump, Putin, the far right and the €urosceptic wing of the Tory party hate it.

Petty?

 

Since day 1 all they've done is play it by the rule book, that we helped write.

 

It's been over 2 years, and we haven't even told them what kind of deal we want yet.

 

They've been unbelievably patient.

There’s nothing petty about international trade. It’s dog eat dog. And the EU, even without the U.K., is one of the biggest out there.

 

Reality!!

Our contribution is a fraction of 1% of our GDP.

 

The contribution is a non-issue.

 

It’s only useful as a political theme, and only then to certain parties
