Cable: Boris' £350m lie exposed by UK stats authority

Boris Johnson’s repetition of the claim that Brexit will create £350 million a week to spend on the NHS has been criticised as “a clear misuse of official statistics” by the head of the UK Statistics Authority.

Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable commented:

"Boris' £350m lie has been exposed yet again.

"He knows an extreme Brexit would damage the economy and mean less cash for the NHS.

"I'm glad to see the independent UK Statistics Authority has the courage to slap Boris down.

"It's a shame the same can't be said of Theresa May."
