As I understand it, extra NHS spending is running at no more than 1% a year in “real” – ie inflation-adjusted – terms, whereas merely to avoid going backwards the service needs an annual real-terms increase of 4%.

We’re in a fine mess if George Osborne is our last hope of halting Brexit image
....One of the interesting things about the attack on the BBC is that, if anything, the corporation is so nervous of the combined forces of the Brexit press and the current Conservative leadership that it seems to bend over backwards not to offend the Leave camp – the amount of airtime devoted to the egregious Nigel Farage being a good example. The terrible truth is that the Conservative and Unionist party has become the Conservative and Ukip party. ...
Brexit is a Whitehall farce that threatens the heart of Europe image
Source : Guardian [Read Article] Sunday 26th of February 2017 07:00:23 AM
....If it were not so serious, the course of the Brexit debate could reasonably qualify as the stuff of high farce.

....The philosopher AC Grayling has pointed out in the New European that there was an “artificially restricted franchise “on 23 June for what was, in any case, supposed to be an “advisory” referendum: unlike the case with the Scottish referendum, “we know that 16-17-year-olds were denied a vote, that a large class of expatriates was denied a vote, and that EU citizens living, working and paying their taxes in the UK were denied a vote”. Theresa May has made a Faustian pact with the devil of Ukip, under which she is evidently prepared to aggravate the already serious problems of our economy – low productivity, austerity, and pressures on the NHS, to name but three – by leaving the customs union and the single market in order to pay lip service to control of immigration. ...

Ministers have yet to make clear how they intend to achieve their stated aim of gaining maximum access to the single market, while at the same time wanting to restore full control of borders and break free of the European Court of Justice, which makes rulings on disputes and upholds single-market law.

....The very idea that “the British people have spoken”, and that therefore the vote is irrevocable, does not quite stand the test of history. The British people spoke in 1975, but the likes of Nigel Farage did not like what they said, so in due course we saw the rise of Ukip and the emergence of Farage, conveniently financed personally by a salary from the European parliament – a salary which, I understand, he continues to draw. ...

.... They have decided that the Brexiteers should have to comply with their own logic – and bow to parliament.
