Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
EP elections aren't a price, they're a legal requirement of continuing membership. The EU don't especially want the UK holding them, they just haven't been able to find a way around it that they believe will hold up under the inevitable court challenges.

You've spent too long reading UK takes on the relationship here. I don't think the EU has tried to extract a price for anything, they've been trying to accommodate the UK crazies as best as they can within the EU legal order despite the utter foolishness of UK commentators.
