This photo shows Sadiq Khan giving a speech outside the Stronger In battle bus in Manchester today. Khan is surrounded by a ring of men at the front. The women are standing at the back. Click on the photo to enlarge – the picture doesn’t lie – there are no women at the front of the audience. When will Labour learn?

Readers of left-wing websites such as LabourList are now seeing adverts appealing to them to vote Leave.

Pro-Remain minister Ed Vaizey repeatedly dodged Brillo’s question about which, if any, economists think Osborne’s tax-hiking spending-slashing post-Brexit budget would work. Accused of “filibustering” to avoid an answer, Vaizey then launched a bizarre attack on the Remain backing IMF’s economic credibility:
“You know full well over the last six years when George took decisions about cutting spending and raising taxes organisations like the IMF told him he was playing with fire”
At times Vaizey was literally laughing at the less than credible lines he was sent out to spin…
“We would oppose any post-Brexit austerity budget, just as we have opposed any austerity budget proposed by this government.” It ain’t gonna happen…

At last something truthful from the Chancellor: Osborne admits Remain cannot offer any reform of free movement.
Today: “The Guardian is reporting this morning that Downing Street is considering whether there could be anything more to offer in terms of perhaps controls on freedom of movement that would reassure voters who were worried about the open door to this country for EU citizens.
Leave message: Leave ministers commit to same level of EU funding post-Brexit.
Remain message: Corbyn: Stay, or the NHS gets it.
Cut through: The Sun comes out for Leave.
