The "Britain Stronger in Europe" campaign is a joke. Watch

    So they opened up about spending £9 million of taxpayer's money on leaflets before the official launch of the campaign, yet the maximum a party can spend is £7 million?

    I think they're slightly worried.

    "the In campaign is bad therefore the argument for remaining in the EU is bad" seems to be the subtext here

    What's a joke is that people like you want to leave over some misguided theories that you somehow gain 'more control' over your own country. There are people who's lives depend, right now, on the EU - and will lose jobs because of a Brexit. Just because you want the personal 'pride' of having your laws governed by the UK government and not EU representatives, it does not negate the fact that there are thousands of people who would have their lives crushed by this decision. As for immigration, we are at a much greater threat from home-grown extremists, and not an influx of refugees coming in with weapons and stuff, there is no argument to say that we are exposing ourselves to ISIS by staying in the EU.

    Let's be serious here. Leaving or staying in the EU probably won't affect either of us whatsoever. But there are people out there who currently depend on the EU for their jobs and therefore their lives. So stop putting your imaginary patriotism over the needs of those who are desperate. It must say something that Cameron, Clegg, Miliband and Corbyn are all in for the EU - especially Corbyn, who is probably the least likely of those to sway his views based on trying to appeal to his party. The only people who want out are buffoons like Farage and Johnson, and IDS who resigned, and Michael Gove.
    Good for you.

    Cherrypicking...

    I'm simply disgusted with the fact they used £9 million of our money for leaflets that lots of people are jsut going throw away. Not only that, but the fact that each campaign has a cap on spending, yet they've already gone over board.

    The IN Campaign and the EU are clearly very worried about this referendum.
