    Was this the claim referred to earlier?

      If we're ill-prepared after 33 months, who's fault is that?

        No, that is doctored. Here is what the bus said.

          No not doctored. Vote Leave produced several variations of the 350 million claim. See here and elsewhere.....

              That one can't have circulated very widely and must have been confined to a few places where speeches were given because I hadn't seen it until now. So I doubt it affected the outcome.

                "Can't have circulated widely"?

                It was circulated in front of Boris, Fox and Duncan-Smith. I've shown you images of it both from national press reports and TV. It was the original billboard poster for Vote Leave and was also distributed as a leaflet form. Bizarre!

                      I followed the Brexit campaign intensely and have followed the debate since. I've seen the bus many many times, but I hadn't seen that until now. So like I said, it wasn't distributed widely.

                      But so what. 350m is the gross figure and maybe even the money we get back is spent on BS, instead of the NHS, where it's most needed. The other side also got chance to refute, debate and rationalise this figure during the campaign too, just as that linked article does.

                          Financial Collapse - Brexit Is The EU's Flu But Italexit Is Its Terminal Cancer



                          And how many people have been telling us that the Italian financial crisis is 'overblown', heavily exaggerated', and 'plain not true'.

                          Cheers

                            I'm sure Russia would like that, after practicing their technique in the UK I'm sure they'll be active in italy now too.

                              Give us a break.

                              Bradburger raises a good point though, Britain has been prepared for it to be bad with endless negative forecasting, the EU is dancing merrily into a no deal scenario as if it will have zero impact.

                                You're wrong on both counts, the eveidence is there for you if you choose to read it, and the EU has done a lot more preparation than the UK which amounts to nothing, apart from the odd non existent ferry contract.

                                  I have to say for once I appreciate this sovereignty and parliamentary democracy so close to the Brexiteers hearts.....

                                  Bercow disallows MV3 if it is substantially same as MV2, as the government cannot keep bringing the same motion back to the House again and again.

                                  A parliamentary procedural rule dating back to 1604.
                                  The Speaker rules that MPs cannot be asked to vote again on the same Brexit deal unless it is changed.

                                    Yes but they aren't expecting several recessions, which seems very likely. And whilst they're talking about expanding Irish port capacities, so far they've done sod all, nor is it clear who will pay this extra money, or Britain's old share. I doubt they're as prepared as they've made out.

                                      Brexiteers fully support this too, that deal is worthless, we don't like bringing the same thing back to a vote either.

                                        Attributed to Albert Einstein the saying The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results describes May and her repetetive tabling so very accurately.............

                                          Yeah, or like asking for a second referendum. But then the EU is founded on doing the same thing over and over until you get a different result. EU Constitution (rejected by referendum) -> Lisbon Treaty (rejected by referendum in Ireland) -> Lisbon Treaty signed.
