Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Boris Johnson said that the UK’s EU contribution was already up to £362m per week for 2017-18 from the £350M originally quoted and would rise annually to £410m, £431m, and then to £438m by 2020-21 – “theoretically the last year of the transition period”.
Johnson argued that it was reasonable to use the gross figure because the UK government would “take back control” of the full amount

Forecasts for the cost of the UK’s contribution to the EU have gone up since 2016 - in part because the value of sterling against the euro slumped as a result of the leave vote that Johnson helped to orchestrate.

Open Britain, which is campaigning for a soft Brexit, issued this statement "Boris Johnson promised £350m a week for the NHS while telling us the EU could go whistle but then backed a £40bn divorce bill. "
