REMAIN OUTSPENT LEAVE BY 2 TO 1
CAMERON SPENT £2.9 MILLION ONLINE TO INFLUENCE RESULT FOR REMAIN
We have previously reported on the basic information regarding the spending of the various campaigns in the EU Referendum. We provided the definitive facts and we present these again below.
As we reported, yesterday Remoaner MPs once again feigned indignation for a perceived injustice done to them, and some are saying that the Referendum will have to be re-run.
Back in March the Lib Dem Remoaner Tom Brake MP requested and was granted a debate in the House regarding the Referendum and alleged irregularities over the way expenses were handled back in 2016.
The House of Treason’s pro-EU Speaker John Bercow MP was quick to grant the debate.
Yesterday there was a repeat performance, this time led by arch-Remoaner, immigrant Labour MP Chuka Umunna, supported by Conservative MPs Sarah Wollaston and Nicholas Soames.
WHO SPENT MORE – REMAIN OR LEAVE?
The answer is clear and irrefutable. The Remain campaigns – official and otherwise – outspent the Leave campaigns – official and otherwise. This is according to the Electoral Commission.
In the £28.4 million total for the Remain side we have included the £9.3 million that David Cameron’s government spent on its leaflet and internet propaganda. Even without that, the Remain side still outspent the Leave side by £4.1 million.
CAMERON SPENT ALMOST £3 MILLION ONLINE TO INFLUENCE RESULT FOR REMAIN
Next we look at a breakdown of the £9.3 million that David Cameron’s government spent on just two aspects of its campaign for a Remain vote.
For the last two years Remain groups and pro-Remain journalists from the Guardian and the Observer have been trying to prove that the Leave side were somehow engaged in some kind of ‘black ops’ involving online marketing. As we show below, the government itself spent £2.9 million on this very thing. Unsurprisingly this hasn’t been the subject of an Observer exposé.
The expenditure on the Cameron government’s publicly-funded propaganda drive for the Remain campaign included the design, production and printing of the infamous leaflet which was delivered to over 27 million households throughout the UK. This leaflet has now of course been proven to be full of information that was factually incorrect.
What is generally never reported – by the BBC, other fake news media, or the big Leave/Brexit organizations – is that 31% of the £9.3 million that the government spent on its propaganda for Remain went on the internet in the form of ‘digital promotion’.
Just take stock of that for a moment. Day after day we are told that Russia, or Cambridge Analytica, or Donald Trump, or Arron Banks, or someone else bought the result of the Referendum. In fact, the British government spent almost £3 million on a website and on ‘digital promotion’, in order to influence the result for Remain.
This isn’t conjecture. The costings for the breakdown come from the Cabinet Office and No 10, and are once again official figures. Despite their europhile proclivities, on this the civil servants and politicians came clean – perhaps because they admitted the figures before the vote, when they still thought they were going to win.
BREXIT FACTS4EU.ORG SUMMARY – CAMPAIGN SPENDING
Remain outspent Leave by over 2 to 1
The government used £9.3 million of public money to promote its propaganda
Almost £3 million of the expenditure was for the internet and ‘online promotion’
If anyone ‘bought’ this result, it was Remain
So there you have it.
Even if there were any technical infringements by a Leave campaign this would be nothing compared to the financial onslaught by the massed ranks of Cameron’s friends, including overseas banks.
Frankly, if we were Remoaners we would be keeping very quiet indeed.[Sources: Electoral Commission | Cabinet Office] 18 July 2018
