European Union are demanding £50 billion before we can negotiate

I understand that because the UK has now formally served the Article 50 letter, the European Union are demanding £50 billion before we can negotiate anything else. Why do our negotiators not ask the EU where they have got that figure from and also to see the audited accounts for the last 20 or so years to back up their figures. What about all our assets we have invested in during the past 44 years such as all the Parliament buildings etc?

Oh sorry, I almost forgot, the EU have no audited accounts as they have been refused to be signed off for the past 20 odd years or so.So what does that mean? I’ll leave it for you to judge.
