The £350 Million Man

Gove says he intends to spend £100 million a week on the NHS.

The figure that actually went to the EU was about £120 million a week.

Uh oh.

So anything that was funded by the EU will struggle to get that funding reinstated by a Gove-rnment.

Note also that if we want Norway style access to the EU single market, we may have to pay about the same as Norway.

Norway pays about £623 million a year for a population of um… 5 million. Scaled up that would be about £155 million a week.

Uh oh.

To paraphrase that famous economist Meghan Trainor:

Cornwall? No.
Wales? No.
Scientists? No.
You gotta let it go.
