According to COllins dictionary:


A supplicant is a person who prays to God or respectfully asks an important person to help them or to give them something that they want very much.


Whether money is offered as part of that plea has no bearing on the relationship. I agree with DtG that the money is already owed, but even if it was not, its presence merely showed the intensity of the plea.

It is odd that Brexiteers often state their there motivations are due by principles other than money - such as sovereignty - but somehow assume the EU is only interested in the money.
