Brexit claim exposed; image dented
Britain’s battle over its EU divorce bill rages amidst confusing claims and counter claims, elaborates Subhash Chopra.
Even as Britain's battle over its EU divorce bill rages amidst confusing claims and counter claims, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is attracting fresh attention. Johnson, who is the chief guest at the London based Indian Journalists Association dinner on August 15, is being accused of telling 'a lie' and misleading the British public in the run-up to last year's referendum, over his claim that the EU was costing Britain pounds 350 million a week. That money, he and his fellow Brexiters said, could fund the ailing National Health Service for a full year. Johnson was often pictured beside the Brexit battle bus during his countrywide campaign tour.
