How on earth he kept a straight face while saying it and all those around did not howl with laughter and disdain, is beyond me.
We've said it before and we'll say it again; the whole establishment is desperate for us to stay in and they'll say absolutely anything to con you in to voting to remain.
They've enlisted and lined up the U.S. President, a load of their past, have been diplomats, the I.M.F., the O.E.C.D., all the Foreign Ministers of Europe, the C.B.I., the secret security service bosses, Labour, Liberals, S.N.P., Greens, Plaid Cymru, you name it.
They're all bought and paid for establishment and yes men or have vested interests; all are wealthy and none of them have to live with the results of their dictatorial, vainglorious political project.
They've also got the biased B.B.C. at hand, as they're scared of losing any more money and is full of politically correct autonyms; Sky T.V. who always seem to play down any bad news story about Europe which as we've seen from their past coverage of Calais (see Blog, Sky News and Calais 12/12/15) seeks to portray the illegal immigrants largely as women and children and ignoring the riots in France.
Then there is seemingly every guest on chat shows or the numerous news channel 'newspaper reviews' who are apparently, all pro-European.

This is your last chance to get out of the E.E.C. before it goes completely bankrupt and demands more and more money from us.
It's also your last opportunity to prevent every man and his dog from all over the Middle East and Africa upping sticks and deciding they want to come to Britain, because that's what it's all about; they don't want to stay in Europe.
And it's also the last stop before Turkey with its' population of 75 odd million will join and all have the subsequent right to come here as well.
Vote to leave the E.E.C.
