The Brexit dividend proposition is rubbish that May couldn’t cling to for even days, yet alone long enough for it to be empirically disproved. It’s now official that the NHS spending increase will require tax increases.
It’s not even really much of an increase - it’s mostly just restoring near-parity with historical NHS funding trends in the past. Trends which, far from being profligacy, simply make sense in the context of an increasing, and increasingly long-lived population.
As Robert Peston said recently (backed up by the head of the IFS), if you hear Brexit dividend, think unicorn.
The endless discussion about the ‘Brexit dividend’ or the NHS bonus are truly useful constructs by Remainers. Despite and including Cameron’s £9 million taxpayer funded package of lies, no sensible BRexiterr was influenced in the slightest by anything on the side of a bus, nor were we moved to vote Brexit in order to waste even more money on the NHS, an unaffordable obsession for politicians and the unworking left.
We voted to regain sovereignty, end mass immigration, cut our payments to the EU and retain all judicial processes within the U.K. Still, if it keeps you all happy patting one another on the back at the antics of the likes of Soubry or Grieve then crack on. I can assure you there are now more than 17.4 million who are unimpressed at the obfuscation and delay by them, Soubry, Grieve, Clarke, as well as the House of Lords, and it is only the fact that there is no nascent Populist Party for Brexiterrs to turn to that is keeping Labour and Conservatives delusional about their popular support.
As for those that ridicule the self made multimillionaire, Jacob Rees Mogg, you have to be having a gigantic laugh at expecting us to give credulity to that weirdo Peston.
