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

Of course it is.

Both campaigns were quite dishonest. Even the IMF later effectively acknowledge they were exaggerating or bluffing.

The way I see it, the referendum was down to a simple YES or NO question. Along the course of the debate, they can choose whatever supporting points they decide to. In this case, dishonest ones. But voters do not vote on those supporting issues. They simply say YES or NO to the referendum question itself - on whether to stay or leave in the EU. That is still what holds regardless of the course of the debate.

We have exactly the same problem with lying politicians in the 'states.
So, are you of the opinion that Farage is not a liar, or his that his lies are acceptable, as they serve some higher aim?
