2:37 pm
result in failed to theresa may's up to twenty billion but there we took from signatures earlier. but again twenty billion is dot net contribution of the united kingdom for two years but then again this. commitments that have been taken before the exit that will result in pay alt beyond twenty twenty one i could you twenty please everybody threat was. the wife because anybody when running enemies certainty i can very sorry but just just briefly deceive you actually care if britain leaves without a deal because. it will be bad for the british economy obviously but. might be preferable for the e. because it will deter other states from ever thinking about leaving. i agree. i know it's it's not about that and i agree with you will death a a disorganized brexit will heard both ways. so might say i know michel e
