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.

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
