    Can your family comfortably afford £4,300 a year for Brexit? 14th Feb 17 at 1:12 AM
    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 OíGrady said: ďThe millionaire who funds the Leave EU campaign may think £4,300 a year per family isnít much money. But losing that much would be a disaster for most working families.

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

    That 'news' article is a year old, before the brexit vote

    Tad out of date now I'd say
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I'm more interested to learn that Aaron Banks was the progeny of a self-fertilising hermaphrodite..!

    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.

    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 www.uniteforeurope.org
