  1. I guess he means “Over the next six years” (later on he mentions “the six year period”), and there’s some inflation-correction built in.

    But at first I assumed that they’d forgotten to include VAT (not that anyone would do that, oh no).

  2. Correction; he’s quoting gross contribution for one figure and net contribution for the other, AND over different periods. Page 4 of the linked document explains: “The UK’s total gross contribution to the EU will be around £71 billion over the seven years of the next financial perspective.”
