Really? They'd be happy for the UK to pick up their share of the financial shortfall?

This is what you said and what I am asking for an example of. Or just admit you made it up.

No I said keeping all the money they had just been given.

It's always foreigners that are wrong more accurately

Which financial shortfall?

The EU seems to run a strange system, where there is an ongoing gap between EU commitments under spending programmes, and the agreed budget for payments in each year. This fudge has never been resolved but will be a core part of the negotiations with the UK.

I do wonder what Brexiteers make of this:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...-eu-luxembourg



“I don’t know of a licensed fintech company in the UK that isn’t looking at options,” he said. “Everyone is thinking about it and anyone that is any size, that is employing more than 10 people, is active. The exodus is beginning. It will be more visible in 2018.”

(...)

“Ministers are in complete denial about the scale of the exodus. Independent estimates say a hard Brexit will cost the UK up to £200bn over the next 15 years”

200 billion pounds over 15 years amounts to about 250 million a week. That 350 million pounds a week is sure getting stretched thin.

Wait, I know, fact and/or expert opinion, so irrelevant, right?
