a few days ago, brexit was supposed to put £350m a week into the health service?
they even put the figures on the side of a bus and drove it around the country.
yesterday Farage says that was ' a mistake'
Now he is talking about dismantling the NHS and bringing in Private medical insurance (Like, maybe, that wonderfully successful model, the USA)
Are the Brexiters still happy, one...
This is where we start finding that no one actually admits to voting for Britain to exit the European Union.
A bit like no one admitted voting Tory after the Torys won the General Election.
Anyone who believes what politicians say just before an important decision (referendum, election) is either very stupid or very naïve. It's their past record you have to take them on, not what they say in the heat of the moment.
Now watch them all wriggle like hell. It'll be we said we COULD put £350m a week into the National Health Service. We COULD reduce immigration.
Boris Johnson is known for manipulating the Brexit situation to further his own career. He wants to be Prime Minister. Now he probably will be. So if the Brexiters want him as Prime Minister rather than David Cameron then yes, they'll be happy.
You may not be able to fool all of the people all of the time, but. as we've seen, it is possible to fool lots of them for some of it. The latest we learn is that now, AFTER he referendum vote Google are reporting the most popular search is 'What is the EU'?
There's an old Chinese curse that says, 'May you live in interesting times'. Well interesting times certainly lie ahead.
The main trouble is that no one ever knew what life after Brexit would be like. It's an unprecedented situation.
But the pound has recovered from it's rapid fall, so Brexiters will be encouraged by that. And several other countries (France & Switzerland amongst them) are wanting their own exit referendums, so they'll be reassured that their view that Europe was 'broke' was correct by that.
They may not be happy that Scotland will try again to split from the EU. Not that Scotland can afford to survive on it's own without the UK, but there will be big political uncertainty there.
They may not be happy that immigration will stay unaltered, that was one of the main reasons for leaving.
They may not be happy that billions, if not trillions of pounds have fallen from the value of big trading companies in the immediate aftermath, far more than was ever spent on contributions made to the EU during Britain's full term of membership.
But Britain has always been an uneasy partner in Europe. Never really committed, never really trusting it. So for that reason, in answer to your question, I'd probably say yes, they are still happy one day on.
This is the beginning stages, it's not even been a week yet, give things time, nothing happens over night, that's not even a reality. Everything will settle down and you'll be better off. Who wants to be in a dictatorship where they control you, your money, your borders, rules they have implemented are insane, the list is endless and yes, the £££ and stocks, etc... may not look great, but, they're merely adjusting and the good news,
there have been a lot of countries who are willing to do trade deals. Naturally being that you're still in the EU, you can't do any trade deals since they STILL OWN/CONTROL you, but, once article 50 is signed, you'll be off and running. The right decision was made, you'll know this soon enough. MOVE ON, Leave won, stop being bitter, you need to pull together right now, not have all this division and hate.
The NHS gets plenty of money and is only in trouble because of millions of immigrants and refugees getting free treatment.
Nope. They are not, hence the growing petition for another referendum.
It wasn't a "mistake." It was a lie.
do you know how they say "curiosity killed the cat" ?? well, "Democracy killed the UK" is what they'll say next.
I an delighted that we are out. The hospital quote was an example. Only stupid people would think it was an intended plan.
That's Farage for you. Remember this is the man who resigned leadership of his party and then unresigned again.
Oh well, I suppose he HAS at last admitted that this claim was a lie, as anyone who knows anything about EU finances knew it was. Meanwhile he always was very right-wing (as is most of UKIP) so it's no surprise he doesn't like the NHS.
Easiest way to parity of esteem for mental health would be #Brexit £350m/week #NHS funding @Jeremy_Hunt makes no mention i
Over a year since the Brexit vote – will #Brexit deliver a £350m per week surplus or £165m per week deficit? Follow for
Rather than Johnson's promise of a gain of £350m per week Brexit to cost UK £300m per week #brexitreality #Brexit…
Forget gaining £350m a week, Brexit would cost the UK £300m a week
Brexit means #Brexit ; #BorisIsBoris . At least @theresa_may isn't spending that elusive £350m a week on speechwriters.
A very few days more, and Captain Wentworth was known to be at
Kellynch, and Mr Musgrove had called on him, and come back warm in his
praise, and he was engaged with the Crofts to dine at Uppercross, by
the end of another week. It had been a great disappointment to Mr
Musgrove to find that no earlier day could be fixed, so impatient was
he to shew his gratitude, by seeing Captain Wentworth under his own
roof, and welcoming him to all that was strongest and best in his
cellars. But a week must pass; only a week, in Anne's reckoning, and
then, she supposed, they must meet; and soon she began to wish that she
could feel secure even for a week.
