It is commonly reported that the UK pays 19 billion to the EU each year. 350 million a week comes to 18.2 billion, so the figure printed on the bus is possibly an under estimate.
It is commonly said that the MMR vaccination is dangerous, it is commonly said that man made climate change isn't real - many things are commonly said, but just because they are oft repeated in some circles doesn't make them correct. This is the politics of populism, the sort of stuff that Hitler peddled in the 1930s - totally dishonest but appealing to a populist narrative.

I don't necessarily believe that prosecuting Boris Johnson is sensible, and likely won't be successful, but these kinds of lies and twisting of facts by people in high office has to stop, if our democracy is not to fall apart.
