This one is all about the numbers. Before Brexit, all the Brexit supporters said they could save £350m per week and invest it in the NHS instead of giving it to the EU. Last week, after heroic efforts in Covid times in the NHS, the nurses got a pay rise of £3.50 per week. Some reward.

A few weeks ago, exports from the UK to the EU post-Brexithad dropped by 68 per cent. Painful figures.
