More scaremongering from the Pro EU lobby one would think that leaving the EU was akin to adding £1 trillion to the national debt ( or selling off vast swathes of public asset  for a song ….

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has stepped into the Brexit debate saying that a UK exit from the European Union would be bad for the NHS.

Writing in The Observer, Mr Hunt says that leaving would precipitate budget cuts, falling standards and an exodus of some 100,000 doctors and nurses.

He quotes a report by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility which says “there appears to be a greater consensus that a vote to leave would result in a period of potentially disruptive uncertainty while the precise details of the UK’s new relationship with the EU were negotiated”. He says that this period of disruption could be a risk to the NHS.

“Those wishing to leave might say this uncertainty is a price worth paying, but my concern is more practical. The NHS consumes the second biggest budget in Whitehall. Next year, thanks to this government’s success in turning around the economy, it will have the sixth biggest increase in its history.
