JUST IN: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the Ukraine expert at the NSC who became a star witness in the House impeachment hearings, was escorted out of the White House, his lawyer said — adding that President Trump had "decided to exact revenge." https://t.co/FQ64uC1FOF

CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) gets funding of about £650 million pa.
Brexit has wasted about £130 BILLION so far.
150 times more.
Wasted brexit civil servants alone have cost the country £10bn.
