    Well... maybe 6 weeks worth. Only leaves ~16bn in year one.
    The money will disappear robbing Peter to pay Paul, there will be little or no benefit to most.

      How amazingly pessimistic. I am looking forward to the Brexit dividend being felt all across this United Kingdom of ours!

      Hmm, so these predictions were from Leave (these were predictions fo:
      1. Emergency budget of 30bln.
      2. Immediate raising of interest rates.
      3. Reduced economic activity/recession.
      4. Crash in house prices.
      5. Job losses.

      I'll omit the WW3/NATO threats as so frigging ludicrous that only an idiot would believe (but that didn't stop a lot of Remain idiots saying though).

      And, what'e happened?
      1. Er no.
      2. Er no, rates were cut (albeit that was a wrong decision).
      3. Er no. All stats since the results have exceeded predictions.
      4. Er no (which is a shame as this would benefit a lot of younger people).
      5. Er no - jobless % is at it's lowest in over 40 YEARS.

      So, you want to talk about PROJECT FEAR. Right.
      Whatever "side" you are on you can not tell if those predictions are true or not until we have actually done brexit. We have not yet, so it it stupid to try to make comparisons.

      Yes, and it is also stupid to keep harping on about (not saying it was you by the way) where has the 350m gone, when we are still paying into the EU.

      It would, i am sure some will be wasted but not the amount that goes into the EU club. I hope that the government will NOW realise that this money needs to go on our stretched services etc. I think they know the public are wising up.

      I would love to share your belief, however, 50+ years plus on this Earth tend to colour your experience. Remember I was brought up on the " North Sea Oil Boom " for instance... now where did that go ?

      We were told that there would be an immediate impact post the vote, not when BREXIT was actioned. However, the Reamin camp and now saying that "Well, it's obvious that there won't be any impact until BREXIT happens", yet they say that sterling is because of BREXIT, but everything else is for the future. However, the forecasts from Mark Carney and Osborne were for interest rates to raise if there was a no VOTE and there would be a 30bln emergency budget due to the impact of the VOTE.

      This hasn't happened, so what the Ramin camp are now saying is that the reduction in this months average earning increase from 2.6% to 2.3% is because of BREXIT.

      So, what is it? Is BREXIT responsible, f***ing yes or no? It seems that the remain side want to make lots of predictions and thhen these fail to materialise, move the f****ing goalposts.

      Christ, vegster even wants to blame the 2008 crisis on BREXIT.
