So 350 million is the gross outgoing figure. No mention is made of rebates or payments made to the UK by the EU in support of EU sponsored and funded projects.

Boris Johnson was at no point inaccurate, but neither did he give a full accountnof how the figures were arrived at. So the amounts are actually immaterial. The case will revolve around whether certain statements were made, by a person holding high public office, in an attempt to deliberately mislead the public.

In that vein, a lot of MPs should be quaking in their boots over promises to deliver Brexit.
