The NHS funding promise from Brexiteers was a bald-faced lie to begin with. The UK receives a rebate from the EU meaning the figure is actually under £250m a week. And that’s before you consider EU payments to farmers, poorer areas, and businesses.

But now it looks like US healthcare companies will be the ones gaining from Brexit, while we pay more. Increased privatisation means that shareholders must make profits. Money we spend on the NHS post-Brexit would end up going into the pockets of US shareholders rather than to improving services.

We would still need healthcare services, so would end up renting them back from these corporations at a higher price. At the end of the day, US giants would gobble up some of the money we may save from no longer paying EU membership fees.
