Well, here's a thing: that £350 million battle-bus pledge has suddenly turned up a bit Cleggy. Since the Government seems to be dragging its feet on invoking Article 50, and since everything will simply tumble into place once we do, a new cross-party blathering club has been set up to agitate for as rapid and chaotic an exit as possible. Change Britain would like "continued funding for farming, science, universities and poorer regions of the UK", viz. all the things we get from being in the EU; but their manifesto makes no mention of the famous pledge to spend £350 million a week extra on the NHS. Naturally the Imperial Haystack has joined up; as has the Labour Brexiter Gisela Stuart, who took the standard Clegg-pledger line in a BBC interview: "For me, the priority was the NHS, but you need to be in government to actually implement that." The thing would seem to be, then, that her actual Brexiter allies who claimed they could actually implement it, such as the Imperial Haystack, are not actually in government at the moment.
