BREXIT AND HEALTHCARE

  • One of the promises of Brexit's official Vote Leave campaign was that cash would be given to the National Health Service (NHS)

    The campaign claimed that membership in the EU cost the UK £350 million a week, "enough to build a brand new, fully staffed ... hospital every week", reports CNNMoney.

    Pro-Brexit politicians continued to make the claim, despite been repeatedly admonished by the Independent Statistics Watchdog, for misleading voters. The slogan was also painted on the side of the campaign's bus. 

    According to Iain Duncan Smith, a leading figure in Vote Leave, the campaign didn't say "all" of it would go to the NHS but "a significant amount of it" would.

    Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party and who campaigned for Brexit implied that money sent to the EU could be spent on health service in the future was a mistake. He said this on British TV:

    "No I can't (guarantee it), and I would never have made that claim. That was one of the mistakes that I think the Leave Campaign made".
