    Michael Gove says he will give the NHS an extra £100m a week, that means he has short changed the NHS by £250m a week. What a liar.

    As I understand it, his pledge is to give the NHS an extra £100m a week by 2020. Which would have happened anyway.

    My understanding was that he never had £350 million a week to give away in the first place.

    He is not even PM and he has already broken a promise, he has also promised to reduce EU immigration but how much of that is a lie as well.

    Let's hope he gives it not by taking away something else.

    If you had taken a look at the inside of the fuel cap with a magnifying glass you'd have seen the disclaimer:

    To be fair, it doesn't say let's fund the NHS with £350 million.

    To me it just says they'll use some of the £350 million to fund the NHS.

    Agreed - nothing clear about whether this is a real increase or just a further lie where inflation eats into any increase.

    In that case please give me £20 for basic food rations this week.

    Some of it may go towards food, some of it may be spent on a new guitar. But that isn't really important.

    Gove never strictly made a pledge of £350m for the NHS. Firstly, the Leave campaign couldn't actually have any say in government spending in the first place (it could only give suggestions, arguments and recommendations), and secondly "We send £350 million to the EU each week, let's fund our NHS instead" doesn't necessarily say all of that money will go towards the NHS. I always imagined it would be put towards other things too, unless should they have listed absolutely everything, down to the spending of each individual pound, on the side of that bus?
