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

Please can someone post a photo of the Leave Campaign bus- with Boris.

Where does it say that Richdog? Now you and I possible realised it was a total lie- many people who voted leave actually believed it, and voted accordingly (yes, I know).

No other business would be allowed to make such claims in advertising and get away with it. The kind of Malboro adverts we had about fags making you good-looking, sexy, healthy and extremely good at sport. Where is the Trades Description Act here?
Potential prime ministers make equally bare-faced manipulations each time there is an election, and however unpalatable that may be, it's nothing new or surprising in mainstream politics.

It's in naive to think that this 350m figure somehow carried the election, because had the figure been 190m it would have likely been the same outcome. Let's not sit here blaming relatively inconsequential things like this for the current situation, let's blame the institutions that have caused such a well of dissatisfaction among the population that it has even come to this point. There is a bigger picture, and it does not lie in the shady claims made by both camps during this referendum.
