Theresa May’s botched Brexit negotiations have burned through £94 million a week since the 2016 referendum.
The government’s own records of departmental spending estimate that Brexit and seeking new trade deals were allocated £14.6 billion in resource budgets between 2016 and 2019, an average of £94 million a week since the referendum.
And it’s to say nothing of the estimated £500 million a week the UK has lost in economic growth since making the decision to leave the EU.
The negotiations have so far produced a withdrawal agreement opposed by the vast majority of MPs and members of the public, and have failed to secure a single new trade deal. Theresa May is now expected to delay a meaningful vote on the agreement until next year.
It makes Brexit the largest cash bonfire since the KLF set fire to a million pounds in 1994.
