However, that completely misses the point. The UK is still the second biggest economy in the EU and we should be able to use the 39 billion pounds divorce settlement to our advantage.

Why should we not respond by saying that we will honour the payment but over a much longer timescale - say over 39 years.

That way we can use the money to protect us against any economic downturn and build up industries read for trading with the rest of the world.
EU economy is way greater than UK and some of trad UK does will find itself repalced within EU. EU have to do nothing but respect choice of UK voters.
