Remainer MP Repeatedly Denies The Obvious
Host Jo Coburn informed us of Boris Johnson speaking to The Guardian. The Foreign Secretary has addressed the slogan on his Vote Leave bus, which suggested we could divert £350 million per week to help fund the NHS upon our departure from the overbearing EU.
Coburn said “The original statement on the Vote Leave battlebus” “was wrong. The real figure is actually higher. He says the UK’s weekly gross contribution would rise to £438 million by the end of the transition period.” “He acknowledges that the figure doesn’t include the money we get back from the EU, but says we grossly underestimated the sum over which we would be able to take back control.”
Sourbry remarked, “I was getting so excited when you said he’d admitted finally it was inaccurate.”
Jo asked her “Do you accept that the figure, whatever it is,” is “a substantial amount of money that Britain would have control over?”
“No” Anna Sourface replied. “People have been conned!” Initially, she offered no elaboration and no reasoning to explain her assertion – just a flat out dismissal. “I’m very surprised and disappointed in Boris that he’s perpetuating these nonsenses.”
Considering the extortionate amounts of money that we waste on EU membership fees and other contributions to EU projects, how she can attempt to claim that Britain would not save significant sums is beyond my comprehension.
The MP then weakly endeavoured to justify her comments by stating “We know the figure of £350 million a week in itself was inaccurate because of” “gross and net. It doesn’t take into account the money that we got back.”
This is typical misinformation that Remainers enjoy proliferating. Even if you take our rebate away from the total, it still leaves a six-figure sum that we would save on the membership fee alone. More importantly, money that we “get back” is not under our control – the EU dictates how we spend it and I have firsthand experience of useless projects that were “EU funded.” Incidentally, “EU funded” is a misnomer. The corrupt bureaucratic bloc does not fund a thing, they merely misappropriate the finances of member states and compel national governments to spend their own money as the EU sees fit.
“This is not going to be extra money that will be going to our NHS” Anna continued. “People were conned about that.”
Only a complete moron would save hundreds of millions of pounds and want to spend it all in one place, but the NHS should receive a healthy percentage.
She then hypocritically accused Boris of dishonesty and declared that the public “deserve honesty.”
She has some cheek! She is fervently allied to the Remain camp, who warned of an immediate and serious economic downturn if we voted to Leave and predicted World War III!
“If you look at the Office for Budget Responsibility,” Jo stated, “it did say by 2021” “that the government would have control over” £269 million per week. “Now, that may not go to the NHS, but do you accept that the British government will have control over a sizable amount of money?”
“I don’t know” Sourface conceded in a tone that seemed to me to imply that if she doesn’t know it, it can’t be true. “I haven’t looked at these things.” “This is not going to be additional funds that will go to the NHS and that was an important part of the trick that was played upon the British people.”
“How do you know it’s not going to happen?” the host responded. “Let’s say after transition” “the government says actually, we will put a lot more extra money and will take some of it out of the money we’ll have control of.”
“Oh, well that’s a different matter” the Remainer answered. “If this government decides to put even more over and above the additional billions of pounds that we have put in”
Coburn interrupted with “But if they use some of that money that we would have control over”
Now Sourface interrupted and spouted a lot of gibberish about the Tories improving our economy and public services, the impact of Brexit and “false hopes and phony promises” allegedly perpetrated by Leave campaigners.
Jo pressed with “Do you accept that there will be this pot of money that the government would have control over and it would have the option” of putting some of it into the NHS?
“I do not believe it’s as straightforward as that.” She spewed another load of nonsensical anti-Brexit propaganda which, frankly, I cannot be bothered to type – it is not worth my effort.
Throughout, Sourface adamantly decreed “facts” with barely a supporting argument. When she was confronted with reasonable debate backed by figures, she either confessed ignorance or continued her denial, then attempted to deflect the discussion in another direction.
She displayed idiocy when claiming that the government spending more money would be unrelated to the government having more money to spend. To deny the blatantly obvious, she either must be extremely deceitful or must have received her education from the same source as Dianne Abbot.
