""Estimates put damage caused to Britain at the end of World War II at £120billion – equivalent to £3,620billion today.""

This was written off in 1990 by the then foreign secretary, Douglas Hurd, to aid Germany's reunification.


I think we should have a word with Angela and tell her some home truths.

Fake news.

Germany doesn’t represent the EU. There are plenty of other countries in the EU, that suffered at the hands of Hitler’s third reich. It’d be hard trying that one out on Michel Barnier (French) and Donald Tusk (Polish).

Er! Isn't fake news untrue news?
This is true.

No, it’s fake news... no story.

No-one is going to remind Angela Merkel about the write-off. Right-wing anti-Brexit campaigners have tried to bring this up, without success..

""Mr Kawczynski said he had been stunned to discover after submitting a written question to Parliament on the subject that Britain had waived its rights to any reparations following the reunification of Germany in 1990.""

On 31 December 2006, Britain made a final payment of about $83m (£45.5m) and thereby discharged the last of its war loans from the US.

It took us another 16 years to pay off WW2 :whistle:
