(not satire – it’s Nigel Farage!)

Nigel Farage reckons 80% of the British public want to leave the EU:

Farage - leave EU


Nigel got his dubious figure from the Daily Express:

express leave EU


The Daily Express in turn got their dubious figure from two Eurosceptic Tory MPs who came up with their own dubious figure after putting leaflets through doors in their constituencies in a small part of Northamptonshire.

Needless to say, the statistics are credible only to idiots (take a bow Mr Farage).

Genuine statistics currently show around 40% of UK respondents think Britain should leave the EU.

Is it too much to ask for a few more facts and lot less b*ll*cks from our politicians and the press when it comes to discussions about important things such as immigration and EU membership?
