Anyone who believes increased NHS funding will be coming from a ‘Brexit dividend’ has been urged to avoid scams that target the gullible for the foreseeable future.
As Theresa May said the NHS would receive an extra £20bn as a Brexit Dividend, many have asked how that’s possible given her own government said government finances will be £15bn worse off after Brexit.
Voter Simon Williams told us, “Don’t get me wrong, I am delighted to see the NHS getting extra funding – that is, unequivocally, good news. But I don’t see how it’s coming from a Brexit dividend when five minutes ago the Chancellor was telling us he’d have to borrow more money to cover losses from Brexit?
“She’s spending money she doesn’t have, to celebrate a deal she hasn’t done, to placate voters angry at not getting what they wanted.
“It seems like she’s taking the nation for absolute mugs.”
However, voter Dave Matthews told us, “It was on the bus and now it’s come true. Checkmate Remainers!
“You all laughed at us believing the bus, but here we are with more than £350 million a week for the NHS, all thanks to the Brexit dividend that we knew was coming.
“I don’t care about where this money is actually coming from because it proves me right and makes me feel better about my decision to vote for Brexit, and strangely makes me feel like the government is suddenly doing a great job negotiating Brexit. Funny that.”
