Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

While I agree that there should have been clearer communication around the benefits, the Brexit camp lied and obfuscated its way through the campaign hiding behind catchy numbers that were fantastic spin (350m GBP anyone?) and preyed on fears that were unrelated to EU membership (refugee queues anyone? Oh that' a UKip poster, pure coincidence, nothing to do with Brexit, you say?).
Wasn't it fun how it took them a a whole 6 hours to completely backtrack on the campaign promise to devote that 350m a week to the NHS
