Farage Says Can Envisage Britain Contribution to EU Budget Post-Brexit – Le Figaro

Britain can make compromises to secure continued access to the EU’s single market, including possibly a contribution to the bloc’s budget, but compromises on immigration are out of the question, Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage told Le Figaro.

Asked by the French daily if Britain would keep benefiting from access to the single market once it has left the European Union, even if it put up obstacles to EU migration, Farage, the head of Britain’s anti-EU UK Independence Party, said:

“Absolutely. There can be compromises with the EU, including on a possible British contribution to the EU budget, even if I don’t quite see the logic for it. But there will be no compromises on what Europe calls “freedom of movement”.
