Whatever happened to that “£350m-a-week for the NHS” promise?

The Brexit liars must never be allowed to forget this.

In a letter circulated by Open Britain, Labour MPs urge Brexit campaigners, like supposedly “Labour” disgrace Gisela Stewart, to come clean about the most brazen of their many lies:

Open Letter on the Leave campaign’s Big Lie:

The result of the EU referendum stands, so the focus is now on how to get the best deal for the UK.

Those who voted leave, many of whom are in our constituencies, did so for a number of reasons. One was the promise that EU membership cost £350m a week and that this money should go to the NHS. This was the most prominent spending pledge of the leave campaign – spelled out on their campaign bus so no one should be in any doubt – and constantly repeated.

The prime minister has said Brexit means Brexit but doesn’t know what it means. All we know is that the government has said this money isn’t coming. We warned this was a lie – and so it turns out to be.

But there should be no escaping this pledge for the leave campaign – they cannot walk away from it now, disown it or pretend it never happened. They must either admit it was a lie and apologise to their voters, or justify it and explain when it is coming.On behalf of the communities we represent, we will keep asking, where is the £350m for the NHS that was promised by the leave campaign? Many will have voted to leave based on this pledge. Those who made the pledge must now be held to account for the promise they made.

    I recall that the brexit said the NHS would get a share of the money sent to the corrupt EU. The brexit are not the government. According to the polls seven out of ten Labour Voters voted for brexit. A clear case the working class are not stupid as suggested by the clever remain lot who lost.

    Perhaps it was pinched by those nasty foreigners,
    the working class Ceausescu called for when booed —
    obviously they have been let into the UK.
    Is this missing money not evidence for their existence

    those invisible Romanian immigrants
    in permanent ostentatious absentia
    no use for anything except to be cited
    in mendacious propaganda
