Should we ask Europe to pay our cost of liberating it in the Second World War? How much? Ten million pounds per death?

Did Germany ever pay back the funds received to rebuild under the Marshall plan? I seem to remember that Britain paid back in full the lend lease monies owed to the US, to fund our efforts, that bankrupted us, in our fight for World democracy. If I am not correct it was Mrs Thatcher who insisted that the "loans" be paid in full. Funny old World...... The aggressors...

No
I assume this is meant to be a wind up.
No, of course not !

We'll let our Brexit negotiating team handle it. Shouldn't cost us too much more.
most of it would go to America and Russia.
"Maybe popped over to France to push em back a bit... Correct me if i'm wrong."

You're wrong. There's plenty of places you can find out why. Perhaps when you're a little older (and lose your vote) you will understand what happened.

The defenders of democracy had to pay for the privilege.
without the US lend lease agreement we could have ended under the jackboot, not to mention the Russians played a major part in the conflice.

by the way, 90 million give or take a few perished in WW2, that's not a little sum of people, and we
didn't just push the Germans back a little, had we capitulated just one bit then as i said we would be part of Germany now.
And the Soviet Union could not have done what it did without aid from the US. Added to the fact that it didn't really liberate anyone in the long run.
And so on.
Ta Rev. Always got me that we funded the German recovery whilst paying the price for stopping the mad man. Their industries finished up with brand shiny new, modern plant and we had to compete with them in a harsh world whilst paying the Country's money over to the US for the loans, and the Germans were able to further invest making us even less competitive.
