They lied and lied

John O'Sullivan says the debate this time was much better than in the 1975 British referendum on the the EEC. 

Everyone complains that this time it was not much good. I don't know. There were some good articles in the press. 

Certainly Cameron Osborne and Remain were shamelessly deceitful and played very dirty. On top of this Leave and David Cameron tried hard to exploit the killing of poor Jo Cox. 

Why mention this? Because it means that as well as the 52% who voted Leave huge numbers wanted to but were frightened by irresponsible threats of 300,000 job losses, welfare cuts etc and maybe by linkage of Leave to far right etc. This makes Leave's victory all the more convincing.
