Can your family comfortably afford £4,300 a year for Brexit?

It's good to be prepared. Can your family comfortably afford £4300 per year if this turns out to be accurate when Brexit happens?

Millionaire Brexit backer Aaron Banks has described the £4,300 a year it's claimed leaving the EU will cost British families as "an absolute bargain."

Mr Banks, who bankrolls the Leave.EU campaign, says £4,300 a year is a small price to pay for restoring Britain's independence

TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said: “The millionaire who funds the Leave EU campaign may think £4,300 a year per family isn’t much money. But losing that much would be a disaster for most working families.

That’s why the TUC has consistently warned of Brexit ’s risk to jobs and to an economy that works for everyone."

    I'm more interested to learn that Aaron Banks was the progeny of a self-fertilising hermaphrodite..! :eek:
  • Brexit hasn't happened yet, so don't write off expert predictions and forecasts. It's wise for every family to prepare for one of the riskiest gambles we will experience in our lifetimes, including the near certainty of additional expenditure of thousands of pounds every year.

    You have still not clarified your relationship to Banks!
  • He has already severely harmed my British family's well-being without our consent. That's our relationship.

    In the right place I may agree with you - but for now, why don't you and skelp his behind..?

    Membership of the EU cost our family £88 last year. Very sad face to be losing all those benefits. Protest on the 25th https://www.uniteforeurope.org
