Well I have to agree with FM as Mr farage has lied in his campaign regarding the £350 million for the NHS, he infact admitted on live TV that it won't happen, so those voting to leave for this reason have been mislead. Rob Knott was not happy
Looking further ahead, the question of funding for the NHS is already being raised. There was a much criticised claim that Brexit would save the UK £350m a week in payments to the EU and allow more funding for the NHS. This did not take account of about £200m of rebates to the UK. Nigel Farage has already said that claim was a mistake.
Leave campaigners talked of an extra £100m a week being freed up for the NHS but that would depend on the government of the day choosing to spend any money saved on health, rather than other areas of the public sector. Simon Stevens, the head of NHS England, has made clear that the financial stability of the service depends on the state of the economy.
Growth will generate the higher tax revenues which can fund higher public spending. But plotting the path of the economy in the run-up to the exit in 2018 is anyone's guess. The prospect of a recession has been raised by the Bank of England. That was dismissed as scaremongering by Leave campaigners.
