I don't recall anyone who voted leave having any concern for the NHS whatsoever.
I'm sure plenty were fooled and swayed by the 350 million a week bus.

I'm pretty sure that some members of HMG feel exactly the same otherwhise why attempt to to pass off the increase to the NHS as a "brexit dividend"?

Forget about Brexit dividend.There will be no such thing.
On the credit side there will be some medium to long term reduction in costs paid into the EU,which will be more than offset by our withdrawal costs and future commitments.
I welcome the support of the NHS but it will be paid for by taxation and reduced funding in other services.

A cynic might think this spin has been lined up to be used if Remain gains the upper hand in Parliament. Appeal to the people and say the remainers are trying to take away the extra NHS money from you....very useful in a snap election or second referendum.

The problem is that no one, including some of May's own Tory MPs believe for a second that this is anything other than a shameful sham.

Basic maths people, basic fact checking. If even that is too much then good luck to you
It is funny, Tim. In a “gallows humour best of” sort of way, regularly taken to new heights by British political play since June 2016

At least, it’s ‘just’ the neocons taking the Leave movement for mugs and shorting the U.K. to the cleaners. Could be worse: could be the neo<something else>...though they’ll likely find fertile ground in the dystopian post-Brexited U.K.

I'm not arguing. I'm simply explaining why I'm right.
