The Leave Campaign spearheaded by Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Nigel Farage repeatedly said:
- They would save the £350 million we spend weekly on contributions to the EU budget on spend it on the NHS. (actually it is £161 million as they were frequently told)
- They would cut immigration.
- They wanted to take back control of our country.
Yet the very day after the EU Referendum they admitted that they were not going to spend £350 million a week on the NHS, they could not control immigration and they had absolutely no plan how they would take back control. On the contrary, it seemed we were losing control as we plunged into financial turmoil.
These lies on which many, many people decided to vote Leave, the decision to take the UK out of the EU was based in totally false promises.
