You're partly right. Gross or net who cares. Reminds me of when Chelsea were negotiating a manager's contract with Ruud Gullit's agent. Chelsea put forward a then massive basic like £500k p.a. as a final offer. Ruud, being a decent guy, said ok, fair enough, £500k. Net.eldanielfire wrote:What did he lie about.

These things are not connected.
Gross or net?
Years ago, Chelsea and Ruud Gullit were negotiating over his prospective wages and some extraordinary salary then like £500k p.a. was offered...which Gullit's agent accepted on the basis it was "net".
Seeing as you choose to perperuate the lie on the wrong thread however, perhaps you will forgive me for saying the UK has never "sent" the EU 350m. a week. It was a lie designed to get the spotlight on what would seem a very large amount to yer average Sun reader and the bad boys of Brexit congratulated themselves over it..
Also it was never a lie. Besides the fact it was taken to court and a judge declared it wasn't a lie. It was the gross figure, not the net figure. Something that for some reason Remainers couldn't get over (and still don't appear to be over) and thus kept promoting that we send hundreds of millions to the EU each week through the referendum. To the average person it didn't matter if it was £350 or £220 million, it was a huge amount. Which is why this attack on Boris is always doomed to failure
You are partly wrong. The UK never "sent" a gross figure to the EU as stated. You are right that, whatever the figure, it represented an unholy amount of 65" TVs to the average Brexit voter.
