Quote of the day 9th June 2016

"For someone like me who has long campaigned for open and honest data in public life I could not have set foot on a battle bus that has at the heart of its campaign a figure that I know to be untrue.
"If you're in a position where you can't hand out a Vote Leave leaflet, you can't be campaigning for that organisation."

(Doctor Sarah Wollaston, MP for Totnes and chairman of the Commons Health select committee, on why she has left the Vote Leave campaign because she could not support their misleading claim that £350 million a week would become available for other causes such as the NHS if Britain were to leave the EU which "simply isn't true".
