    Presumably you've just watched the John Oliver clip?
    Indeed.
    He exposes how it was an outright lie.

    Nigel Farage's £55 million a day claim most likely, which comes from the ONS Pink Book. The ONS themselves have already said that the use of this figure is wrong.
    I hope in future they criticise the use of gross tax rates then

    How?
    He got mad when compared to chamerblain, he couldn't even mange to say "Yes, I would veto Turkish entry" so obviously he got slaughtered there afterwards and he couldn't even rouse the support of those on his side half the time

    It's hardly that unfair a comparison, he has come back from the European empire with a promise that they will/won't do something and nothing more

    They won't go back on their word, they really want us to remain. They have no reason to risk provoking another referendum.

    The original sum you've used for calculations, and mentioned before, isn't that accurate to start with.

    So you're telling me that the ONS is lying?

    There are plenty of ways they can hold it up, or get rid of it early without provoking our wrath

    Youre being very liberal with the word "slightly"

    Currently watching question time from 09/06/2016, a complete and utter mess, wow!

    Everyone was totally out of place! I found it ironic how Mrs Pearson told the men to shut up essentially, double-standards there.

    Other than that winding me up the wrong way, the guy with the idea of the australian poins system is a good call. However i've only watched half of it, so let's see what wisdom will come from these highly respected people in the next half hour....

    Best regards

    Yeah Izzard made a complete fool of themselves, just trying to self-publicise during the whole thing holy smokes.

    Dimbleby's best line was at Grayling 'I know you're not meant to be doing blue-on-blue but in regards to Cameron.....' Haha that bit was pretty good.

    Poor Grayling was getting wrecked by almost anyone. It was like bash Grayling night.

    Best regards
