  1. Anyone with a little bit of brain would recognise the above report as being complete rubbish! At least those opting for Brexit are better informed and do not have to resort to misleading the public!

  2. “Misleading the public”? Only today, Gove was promising that VAT would magically disappear from household fuel after a Brexit. With, wait for it, a huge average saving of sixty quid a year for all!
    A constant stream of fake propaganda issues from the lips of Boris Johnson (leader!) Micheal Gove, Priti Patel, Iain Duncan Smith, Nigel Farage, Paul Nuttall , George Galloway. These are the stars in your chosen firmament Marvin. Dodgy company!

  3. stefanjo, do you really enjoy playing the fool – it is you who has been spouting unsubstantiated propaganda since the referendum was announced – you are doing wonders for the Brexiters – keep it up.

    David, spot on and the unpaid loans run into multi-millions.
