So, there's been some disagreement recently on a proposed increase in funding for the British National Health Service. The government has declared that this money would come from a "Brexit dividend" before later admitting that most of it would come from an increase in taxes.
This is similar in content, but not in scale, to the infamous bus which declared that:
"We send the EU £350 million a week, let's fund our NHS instead."
There seems to be a lot of mixed information around this issue lately so needless to say I'm confused and uncertain.
- What, exactly, is a "Brexit dividend"?
- What is likely to define the size of it?
- Isn't there a so-called "divorce bill" which will mean Brexit is a net loss to the country?
