Case in point: The first of the three main thrusts of the 'Out-ie's' arguments for leaving the European Union is as follows…[I quote directly from their website (which is much easier to find through Google than the 'In-ie's' site?)]…
Bring Back UK Democracy
The unelected European Commission which runs the EU,
regularly rejects attempts by Britain to reform the Union.
Since 1996 – when records began – the UK has never
managed to block a single piece of EU legislation.
Mr Prime Minister: there are dozens of ways of disassembling this statement, dozens of ways of proving it wrong, yet all you do is persist with your scare-tactics of economic disaster or mass migration, neither of which is that likely; a slow trickle of immigrants to a slowly dying economy is the more likely truth. Probably balanced - or overshadowed - by an emigration crisis of the 'brain-drain' type…there's your next scare story!
Meanwhile, people like me, listened to by…err…no one…have to unpack the out'ie propaganda, while you inadequately fiddle with yourself like a snuffling cockwomble.
Firstly, the "Unelected European Commission" regularly rejects attempts by ALL the member-states to reform the Union, that requires those member-states to come together to change the EC, something which - I believe - is in the pipeline. Not for one of its main members to petulantly throw all its toys out of the pram and walk off muttering 'It's not fair, the Daily Wail says it's not fair'.
While the second point is interesting isn't it? We joined the EEC in the early 1970's, yet they've taken a date of 1996 as their starting point? Well, call me a genius if you have to, but I recon records exist prior to 1996? What is the true picture? I'm sure I remember us blocking all sorts of things. The Maggii made it her summit-sport of choice!
Oh look! here's one...I happen not to agree with it (only a cockwomble would force-through pro-fossil fuel stuff in the 21st century), but it's there none the less!
You, and your campaign should be pointing-out these things, you should be countering this sort of bias, you should be telling us the truth - simple people believe simple stuff, and with schools (public and private) turning-out illiterates, more that a hundred years after to introduction of universal, compulsory education, there are a lot of simple people at the feet of Westminster's benches! Some of them seem to come from Eton, and to be sitting on those benches!
