I have just seen on TV a few highlights from a heated debate on the divorce bill involved by Brexit. According to this source:
European leaders have warned the UK that it will face a divorce bill of up to £50billion for outstanding commitments and pension liabilities.
While [some] officials
believe that the UK is entitled of £9billion worth of funds currently held by the European Investment Bank.
separate analysis has suggested that the UK is entitled to a further £14billion worth of EU assets including property, cash and other investments. considers that
"We have put into the place half a trillion pounds over the past 40 years which has never come back. That's invested in all sorts of stuff there.
"We have intellectual property rights, physical investment in buildings, money in the European investment bank. We own a chunk of the EU, we don't owe them any money.
According to this question and its accepted answer, things seem pretty clear.
Question: why are there so many opinions regarding financial dimension?
