They have it backwards. The UK should really be demanding money from the EU to not compete against it. The UK can run circles around the EU should it truly get competitive, which it may very well get. That is where things are headed.
Talk about kindergarten! When you are negotiating with an economic power that dwarfs you, you do not get to play silly buggers.

If the UK were to adapt your childish nonsense then they would find that every single attempt at a trade deal would be torpedoed at the WTO by the EU and no doubt a few others for a start! Hell, the US, New Zealand etc are already complaining about the proposed trade schedule changes never mind this crap.

Mrs. May et al donít keep turning up at the BREXIT talks because itís great fun, they do it because they are at least mature enough to know they donít have much of a choice. Now back to playing with your toys.
