Off the top of my head, 400,000 care workers on £20,000 a year salary?
Come on NS, plenty of ways that money could be well spent in the UK, do you disagree, how would YOU spend it?

Do we need 400,000 extra care workers? I don't know?

Education would be a good idea I suppose if done correctly.

This is why I am asking, it seems like a lot but it's interesteing to look at how are money is spent and think about what any aditional funds could be put into.

Deciding what to spending it on will cost £0.5bn to begin with.

The E.U. was created for fleecing people of money, culture and heritage, and its done a fine job of it, fifteen years ago on this very site we said it would happen and we got laughed at.

One could almost make the case that the EU is a British invention.

To be fair, £8 bln is small change to the UK. Oh, it's a lot of money, but small change none-the-less.

What could £8bln buy infrastructure-wise?

A third runway at Heathrow costs c. £15 bln.
High Speed rail is £50bln

HS2 is part funded by the EU. Not sure whether the £50bn is the net or the gross cost.
