Electoral Commission Claim Voters Too Stupid for Brexit Vote

The Electoral Commission have left themselves open to all sorts of accusations today after making a very loaded intervention into the EU referendum debate and the passage of the Wharton Bill. They are suggesting that the best question would be:

“Should the UK remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”

With STAY or LEAVE as the answers. Instead of the simple Wharton Bill question:

“Do you think United Kingdom should be a member of the European Union?”

With YES or No as answers. The Electoral Commission are pathetically/hilariously claiming that too many people would be confused about “whether UK is currently a member”. A line that won’t wash against the conspiracy accusations.

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
