UK have to pay almost £50bn bill as they forward their divorce

If Britain refuses to walk away without respecting a £50bn Brexit divorce bill EU threaten with court action. This has been confirmed by some draft copies of the EU’s negotiating.
It quotes an official as saying that if Britain refuses to pay, “in that case it is, see you in The Hague!”
Theresa May got same information in this matter from Government lawyers. They said that UK could leave EU without paying the bill. Sir Tim Barrow, Britain’s ambassador to the EU, said that “other legal options” are analysed .
Another important aspect that UK wants is to keep the access to the single market. EU said that this will happen only if freedom of movement remains.
This comes after some polls were created. Nine in ten people want to keep free trade after the Brexit, regardless of which way they voted in last year’s referendum.
This survey was made by Professor John Curtice, of the National Centre for Social Research.
Prof Curtice said: “Many a Remain voter would like to see the end of freedom of movement…the priority that the UK government appears to place on this issue is not necessarily at odds with the views of those who voted Remain.”
Some of this polls illustrates the difficulties that Mrs May is facing in this complex process.
“It is a combination that potentially presents the UK government with a considerable challenge,” said Prof Curtice.
“For the EU, free trade and freedom of movement are meant to go together. For British voters they do not, especially for Conservative voters. Meeting their expectations for Brexit could thus prove difficult…Mrs May could well face a hard task at home keeping voters on-side.”
Regarding the interest that people showed to continue some projects with EU, we would see that they want to keep some domains the same intact. More than two-thirds of voters want to keep some benefits with EU. In the process of leaving EU, UK has to keep the most important aspects to please their people.
Prof Curtice added: “Many Remain voters would like to see an end to the less popular parts of Britain’s current membership of the EU, while many Leave voters would like to retain the seemingly more desirable parts, such as free trade, cheap mobile phone calls, and clean beaches.
“This is perhaps typical of the pick-and-mix attitude to the EU that has characterised much of Britain’s relationship with the institution during its 44 years of membership so far.
