Its a non starter. The UK cannot be a direct financial contributor to the EU for a variety of reasons but primarily because no politician would want to have to carry that into an election with them. And I would argue that this notion of a two circle EU exists already because of the single currency project. It might not have been formalised but effectively it existed from the moment the Euro came into existence.

What they are proposing is not Brexit. Brexit means we are departing from a partnership. Friends with the EU, then yes. Good neighbours, absolutely. But not partners. This is about a clean, and hopefully amicable, break.
