At Prime Minister's Questions, Shipley MP Philip Davies supported David Cameron's comments about Nigeria and Afghanistan being corrupt and asked: "Can he tell us where he has the European Union in his league table of corruption given they haven't had their accounts signed off for 20 years."Is this true?.............No it `t.The latest report, published in 2015 for accounts in 2014, explicitly said that the auditors were "signing off the accounts" as they have done every year since 2007. butl et`s not let let facts get in the way of a good old Brexit lie eh!

How can you talk about the EU Gravy train when our MPs are continually caught fiddling their expenses and while it's the UK and it's dependencies is the world's number one refuge for tax dodgers and criminals?

As for Brexit the Movie... the whole documentary is about the need for deregulation. It's fundamentally a neoliberal infomercial, painting history through the mantra of deregulation leads to growth and regulation leads to stagnation. They tell us that the EU is over-regulated, so we need to get out - and then we will economically prosper. That's the thesis. The only problem is that they have no business/ economist backing whatsoever. Instead of interviewing CEOs of Airbus, Rolls-Royce, etc (all of which have come out for Remain), the documentary interviews just the standard clique of Nigel Lawson, Daniel Hannan, James Delingpole, Nigel Farage, etc... Politicians and right-wing journalists - with Kate Hoey thrown it.
So with an economic argument fallen flat, we're left with their wrapping of "freedom" and claims to support the little man against the Euro elite. Two problems here. Firstly, a "free" Britain could not make its "own laws" all the time when dealing in the international space. So to "go global" and make all those spiffing trade deals, there needs to be agreements on regulations. That's what the single market is. Agreed standards. Right now our governments and MEPs are elected by us and vote on cross-border agreements. If we pull out - how do we get a democratic say? We don't. And we don't gain freedoms on Brexit, we lose them. We lose freedom of movement, freedom to hire from the EU visa-free, freedoms of access to the single market, freedoms associated with the working time directive potentially, rights to cross-border care potentially. What are the freedoms these Brexiteers speak of then? It is simply their own freedom to rule this country. Little people get no more freedoms as the neoliberals roll their protections away.
Finally, they blame the EU for everything - including declining fish in the sea (which, incidentally has been a problem since bottom-trawling began some 150 years ago), even peddling the myth of the Dutch trawler that takes 25% of the UK quota (a problem of allocation at the UK government level - not the EU's diktat). They also imply that all those EU regulations that swirl around us are unique in the world. They are not. In fact, the UK has its own stunning bureaucracy and love of gold-plating of EU regulations. So why aren't they attacking that? Simple - it's a bigger ideological thing. They want us to vote leave so that they can take control and pursue their glorious economic deregulation, unshackled - because you help the little person by taking away environmental, social and health protections.

Look how nasty, shrill and vicious the remainers are becoming. Shows the content of their characters and their extremist tendencies.
Faced with a cheery, optimistic well argued leave campaign they have resorted to lies, personal attacks and insults as they have lost the major arguments.
Much of the arguments like democracy span the political divide and it's a shame the remains have only sought to divide people. If you think we'd rather support nasty people like you, you're wrong you've had your chance with the EU and you have caused misery to millions.
Time for a new path and self-confidence with democracy, freedom and co-operation with the whole world.

On the other hand, if you want the country run by the Camerons, the Osbornes, the Hunts, the Mays, the Morgans... not to mention the Corbyns, the McDonnells... and lurking in the background, the Mandelsons, the Browns, the Blairs.
