Yeah, so about that £350m a week for the NHS…

WATCH: @Nigel_Farage tells @susannareid100 it was a 'mistake' for Leave to claim there'd be £350M a week for NHS

— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) June 24, 2016

It was always nonsense, but according to Ipsos-MORI last week, about 47 per cent of Britons believed the number.

Farage claims that he was “ostracised by the official Leave campaign” and “did my own thing”, and thus he had nothing to do with the bogus claim. Huh.

We wonder how aggressively he disputed that number before this morning?
