UK To Pay £15 million to Spain For German Cucumber Error

Reason for leaving the EU number 2011: German food scientists claim the e-Coli could be due to Spanish cucumbers so Spanish vegetable market collapses. EU proposes £134 million compensation package to Spain, payable from EU funds not just Germany.As the UK contributes over 10% of the EU budget, that's Gute Nacht Wien to the equivalent of  about 15 hours worth of international aid spending. It's only borrowed money after all.
