Busting Brexit Myths
The Leave campaign are already peddling their lies stirring up support for a no deal Brexit. Remain campaigners need to be able to counter these myths and promote the positives of staying in the EU.
One of the saddest aspects of the Leave / remain debate is the lengths to which some Leave campaigners will go in pursuit of their goal. For them it’s an existential battle where winning is all important, whatever the costs. The ‘ends justifies the means’ attitude has seen the Leave campaigns fined and referred to the police for breaking electoral law and fined for breaking data protection laws. Many claims made in the 2016 referendum have been thoroughly debunked (Eg. the £350m bus lie, the EU Army lie and the Turkey Accession lie in particular) however many new claims and outright lies are still be perpetrated and we see these daily on our Facebook pages and in conversation with Leavers on our street stalls. This page aims to arm you, our followers and campaigners, with accurate rebuttals.
