    Except that would have been a lie - because there never would have been an additional £350m to spend on whatever we liked. As we now all know - after the rebate (taken before we send anything to the EU) is taken into account our payment is £248m/week.

    The EU also funds UK projects to an amount of about £100m/week. So if the UK maintains that level of funding after leaving the EU we will theoretically have about £148m/week to spend 'as we like'. Now how much of that we'll have to spend to access the single market...? Let's just assume a payment about the same as Norway's - £15m/week. Takes us to about £133m/week.

    Now how much is the chancellor estimating his contingency/mitigation/fighting fund be? £60bn - that's £60,000m. So the fighting fund requires 450 weeks of 'money to spend on what we like'. So we can start to see some of that being spent on the NHS in - oh - about 8.5 yrs time - so 2026. Can hardly contain my excitement.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    Well, same misconstrued replies that miss the point of the post quoted and similar misrepresentation of trade operations from a gazillion previous posts....


    BUT - full marks for having the guts to use "lend me a tenner and I'll give you back the fiver I owe you!" I have emailed to Corbyn and Sturgeon... they'll want you for Chancellor of the Exchequer

    Is this kind of view or 'humour' being seen as more acceptable post Brexit with the leave set? Horrible.

    And when we discover that taking back control of immigration does not significantly reduce numbers (despite the SLP lie soon to be stated in her manifesto); and that somehow our problems aren't solved by taking back control of immigration - I fear a lot more of that sort of stuff coming...oh what a hoot. And so the little boy laughed to see such fun.

    For the fiscal year ending in March 2017:
    The “current budget deficit*” is estimated to be £14.0 billion.
    The difference between spending (including capital expenditure) and revenue is estimated to be £53.9 billion.

    What's that supposed to mean, because the clear implication is that Scottish Remain voters are stupid or misguided. If that is what you mean then just say it. If it is not then what do you mean?

    Or are you saying that despite current failings of the Scottish education system the Scots were still able to see the sense of voting to Remain - I'm confused

    That is nothing compared to the Sussex Tory candidate telling a Scots Millfield pupil who supports Independence to... [insert bad four letter word beginning with f] off back to Scotland........seemingly after complaints from the girls parents he claimed he was only 'Joking'.
    Aye right.

    BTW - the £60bn came from a report in the Times

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/c...fund-n7hmvzptq

    And even if that fund does not officially exist then there will be something in place in the face of the (perhaps outside) risk of the UK having to pay €100bn to meet it's debts and commitments to the EU before leaving.

    You and your cohort were the ones that brought up the issues of educational standards and other derogatory remarks about leavers not me, however I know you like to keep repeating posts so let's end this one now.

    ...ah - OK - it was a reposte to the Leave feeling that Remainers think some leavers rather silly and misguided. OK - we'll leave it there then.

    BTW - I'm not sure what cohort I'm now in...and who's in it with me.
