Because we never get the straight story from our media. Only stuff about straight cucumbers and metric weights. Politicians are no better. Anything unpopular that comes from Europe they blame "them," neglecting to say that most of the unpopular policies, laws, customs etc are trade-offs, if you want such and such, I'll have to have so and so. That's how politics works. But catch politicians saying it?
Because we never get the straight story from our media.
I din't think that's quite right, is it, though. The liberal left dominated BBC News and Current affairs teams have seen to that, with Ian Katz, ex-Guardian editor running Newsnight, and Labour's very own placewoman Kirsty Warke fronting it.
In any case . are you saying that such august mass-circulation printed organs as The Daily Mirror, The Morning Star, The Guardian, The Independent, Tribune, The New Statesman, The Daily Herald, The Teacher , etc plus all the unions that have active news sections in their web sites, are telling porkies about the EU? Really?
