Sadly, I suspect you're right.

Lies will continue to hold sway even in the face of inconvenient facts.

Politicians will still proudly parade their ignorance.

Newspaper headlines will still misrepresent the body text (and Betteridge's Law will continually to apply)... The list is endless.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
