It is interesting to see the sheer number of myths that have been peddled by the British media and interesting too that the EU has a myth rebuttal website!
Here are the fascinating statistics on the number of myths per year – it has been going on for a long, long time. Boris Johnson has had a significant role both as journalist and politician in peddling lies about European regulation (some of which, we should note, are actually WTO regulations)…
Towards the end there has been a significant increase around the time of the coalition where the LibDems would not permit a referendum and of course when the unrestrained Cameron Conservatives were elected in 2015.
It couldn’t be that the media had some sort of agenda could it?
