Boris ‘lied in NHS pledge’
TWO-THIRDS of doctors and nurses say Leave fanatic Boris Johnson lied when he promised £350million extra a week for the NHS after Brexit.
He put the pledge on his battlebus as he toured the UK in the referendum campaign.
But a Yougov survey of hospital medical staff shows that only one in ten believes that vow to be true.
Sixty-six per cent called it a “deliberate lie” when the former Foreign Secretary said the NHS could have the money that Brexit would save.
Seventy-five per cent of doctors and nurses said they want to stay in the EU, up from 66 per cent in 2016.
In a separate survey by the People’s Vote campaign, 64 per cent of medics said they thought the NHS would get worse because of Brexit.
Theresa May aims to give the NHS an extra £394million a week – but not from Brexit. Taxes would rise to pay for it.
