Boris Johnson says we send £350 million a week to Brussels. He also says we can use that money to save the NHS. Neither claim is true.
Margaret Thatcher secured a discount on our payment to the EU. When you take account of that and money that comes back to Britain, our membership costs 30p per person per day. That’s half the price of a Mars bar. And we get more than 30p a day back in benefits.
Boris also doesn’t say that EU migrants support the NHS. They pay more in taxes than they use public services. What’s more, if we left, we’d suffer such an economic shock that we’d have less money to spend on the NHS, not more.
Sign our petition to get Boris to re-paint his battlebus without glossing over the facts.
