BORIS Johnson has hit out over the £87bn the European Union wants the UK to pay before leaving the crumbling EU.
Speaking in the Commons he said that the EU should be told to ‘go whistle’ over the so-called ‘Brexit bill’ adding that the sums “I have seen are ‘extortionate'”
He also added that the UK has not set out any detailed plans for a ‘no deal’ because Britain will get a good deal.
Downing Street has also told business leaders that Mrs May could potentially storm out of EU negotiations over the divorce bill.
The move is designed to show that Mrs May is playing tough.
The EU Divorce bill ranges from £35bn to £87bn and UK officials are said to be unhappy about having to pay a fee to leave the failing union.
