The Divorce Bill?
Since winning the Brexit vote, we have been inundated with talk of the “EU Divorce Bill”. Yet this is a flawed analogy.
Who was the junior partner in this relationship? Surely if Brexit will cost the country billions (as politicos and the press so frequently tell us), then it should be the European Union that keeps us in the “lifestyle to which we have become accustomed”?
Who are the offspring that must be supported? It seems that the EU will maintain custody of the “children”.
As negotiations once again flounder, perhaps it is time we examined the relationship with fresh eyes.
The EU is an abusive partner that has held the purse strings and used its power to demean, control, and direct the course of the UK.
We need to walk away with our heads held high and our pride intact.
