They all lied and now we know it
Osborne pre-referendum: It will be terrible for the UK and I'll have to hurry through an emergency budget that sees a hike in taxation.
Osborne post-referendum: UK goes forward 'from a position of strength. There will be no emergency budget.
Cameron pre-referendum: Article 50 will be initiated as soon as the results are in, if leave win.
Cameron post-referendum: I am not getting involved. I resign. I'm not touching Article 50,its up to my successor.
Cameron pre-referendum: It will be World War III.
Cameron post-referendum: No word on the blackouts, air raid shelters, rationing or preparations for war!

Also, post-referendum: Game of Thrones will be cancelled if we leave, shock, horror! Post-referendum: HBO announce that Brexit will not affect the filming of Game of Thrones which will still be filmed in Northern Ireland.

Feel free to post more, there is an abundance of them.

And the other side? Didn't they lie too about much more fundamental things to the long term survival of this once great nation. Not so great any more, hey......

Re Brexit: Where was the 350 million destined for again ?

Agreed Monster Munch, the Brexit mob lied through their back teeth, and back-tracked within hours of the result on the 350 million and it's proposed destination. The Remain camp couldn't really hide what we already had with us being in a member the EU. What really angers me is how gullible people can be, have been.

Come on guys keep up, there never was 350m
It was 350m - 100m rebate
The 100m rebate will have to go straight to what it was paying for anyway (fisheries, farms and odd and sods), the 250m is offset by any reduced revenue as a consequence of leaving EU.
Whilst not said or implied surely that was always obvious (in the same way it was obvious that 350m was 250m)?

It wasn't just the rebate, there was the money that the EU sent to support areas like South Wales and Cornwall as well. I read that the true figure with all that taken into account is about 190 million.

Harry, you do realise the UK is a net contributor to the EU's budget? Ie; we put in more than we receive. Take a look at fullfact.org. In 2015 we spent 8.5bn more than we received back in the form of the rebate and support areas like you mentioned.
Yes, the EU did fund numerous different things in the UK that were of benefit but we have always been a NET contributor - we could afford to pay for these areas and additionally pay for other areas outside of the EU.

But the Confederation of British Industry reckon that for every 1 we pay to the EU we get 10 back. i.e. it's a good deal, a good investment.

Why, if you were Cameron, why on Earth would you bother invoking article 50, instead of leaving to a successor - Boris - who can do it with much more enthusiasm and commitment. Oh wait, Boris doesn't want to do it now.

In cash terms yes. But as has become apparent over the last few days, being a member of the EU made our economy bigger and gave our government more money to spend on education and health. With our economy smaller we will have much less money to spend on those things and others, to an extent so large it will make 350m look insignificant.

Tom. You clearly think the answer to the question of who pays the interest to the IMF and what else it provides is interesting.... more
