Ooops?

Brexit might have been a mistake, says Vote Leave supremo Dominic Cummings

“No-one on Earth” knows whether Brexit was a good idea for Britain, the driving force behind the Vote Leave campaign has admitted.

And he admitted that the notorious “We send the EU £350m a week” slogan painted on the side of Mr Johnson’s Vote Leave campaign bus was deliberately chosen to “drive the Remain campaign crazy”.

The UK has in fact never sent the EU £350m a week.

We've no idea whether Brexit is a good idea and so we'll just lie and say it is. What a malaka.

£350 million a week doesn’t include the rebate
It’s been claimed that we send £350 million a week to the EU. That misses out the rebate, and it doesn’t represent the total economic costs and benefits of EU membership to the UK.

£350 million is roughly what we would pay to the EU budget without the rebate. The UK actually paid closer to £250 million a week.
