Here's A Chart Of The Biggest Winners And Losers In Europe's New Budget

The European Union released new calculations on member states contributions to its budget Friday. Payments are linked to a percentage of GDP, which changes over time, hence the recalculation. As the FT reported, the UK has been hit worst by the new, provisional, calculations as its economic growth spurt has left the country facing a bill of €2.1 billion ($2.7 billion) to be paid by December.
