Well, apart from the minor detail that we don't, and never have, send £350m a week to the EU...

And that even if we did, we wouldn't be able to give it all to the NHS as it would need to be used to fund various things that the EU currently does.

And even that supposes that the Tories, who are still in charge, would even want to give the NHS an extra pound a week when they could give it to their mates instead.

So no, not misleading at all.

Either way, the claim was never that £350m would go to the NHS.

Alas it doesn't Say there will, nor does it say should, it say "lets"

Nigel Farage was part of Leave.EU, not Vote Leave who commissioned the famous bus. So whlist it was a porkie, it was very wrong of Susanna Reid to take Farage to task for a claim his camaign hadn't made.

Oh God, I've bought Good Morning Britain into it...

He's right... to a point. It's not badly worded but cleverly worded. It's offering reinvestment into the NHS as one possible option or suggestion.

If we get rid of the apostrophe...
Let us give our NHS the £350 million the EU takes every week

Vote Leave
Only a fool or a liar would try to present that as not suggesting we a) sent £350m a week to the EU or b) If Vote Leave won the referendum, they wanted to give that money to the NHS.

They did win, and surprise surprise, they admitted we didn't actually give that much money to the EU, and even if we did, we couldn't give it all to the NHS. Just like "Project Fear" said.
