This does not include the outstanding claims against the NHS estimated to be another £80 billion.

So much of what goes wrong is down to to the understaffing which leads to mistakes and poorer services.


Working in the public sector the cuts which have led to really poor outcomes for people means that for every £1 saved in budget cuts the likelihood is that further down the line it will cost another £5 to £10 to put right.

The cost of domestic violence (where there have been massive cuts in support available) leaves so many children in particular but women and some men so damaged that it impacts on their long term MH, offending , behaviuoral problems etc that the money saved in the cuts will be felt for many years as those affected by the cuts require additional support for years

No worries. As from next week the nhs will be receiving an extra 350m a week so will pay it off in no time. That is unless the tories are lying? Nah that can’t be the case surely

Tbf, I think we’re still contributing to the EU budget during the transition period, so through to the end of the year if it isn’t extended.

Obviously the £350m per week figure was very misleading, and i’m dubious about how much, if any, new money the Government will be willing and able to redirect from the Brexit windfall.

The 'Brexit windfall' has probably already disappeared given how smaller the economy, and associated tax take, is compared to how it would have been had we not voted to leave.

I admit to using the term somewhat sarcastically. :)

The pay-off isn’t economic, it is about sovereignty - which is why all the economic arguments have had so little impact. I suspect only really bad economic outcomes would lead to any significant degree of bregretsit.

For those of us that feel we’re taking back something that we hadn’t really lost in the first place, the less money thing feels like a high price for not much.
