According to the BBC, ”both sides in the EU referendum campaign have been accused of peddling “misleading” figures and “implausible assumptions” by a committee of MPs.”
Furthermore, the Treasury Select Committee calls Vote Leave’s claim that Brexit would save £350m a week “deeply problematic”.
”Vote Leave’s £350m-a-week claim – repeated again today – does not take into account Britain’s rebate and payments that flow back to the UK, the committee, chaired by Conservative MP Andrew Tyrie, says.”
And it further says Remain’s claims families would be worse off by £4,300 a year if Britain quit the EU were “mistaken” and had “probably confused” voters.
The Claim: The two sides in the EU referendum campaign have been accused of peddling “misleading” figures and “implausible assumptions” by a committee of MPs.
So a mixture of supposed false arithmetics in terms of the statistical effects of leaving, or remaining have caused national confusion and ‘misleading’ campaigning. ‘Scare sources’ also known as scare mongering are also problematic in getting votes through intimidating the public to vote a certain way with the use of promoting ‘sinister’ outcomes of either leaving or staying.
What do you think?
Is this fair? How mislead are you by the Vote Leave and Britain Stronger in Europe campaigns? Is the nation at a big divide over the EU disputes? How do you think the Campaigners can campaign more democratically to the public?
