How Dodgy Dave's Government is now actually stealing your money to lie to you about Brexit

The Mrs was renewing her MOT. A banner advert on the site linked to take the EU quiz which by mistake she hit. It is a multiple choice quiz by the Government. It is laughable.

How many jobs in the UK are linked to our exports to other EU countries. Ooooooh 3 million says the Treasury. I better vote to stay in. And it goes on for eight questions that are slanted and with answers which are not facts but opinions. How many Turks, Albanians, macedoniasn and Bosnians will be able to wander freely around the EU from later this year? 0, 1 million, 75 million or 87 million? No...that question was not asked.

The whole thing is laughable but what makes it criminal is that the advert on the MOT page could have been sold via google or even via an ad house. The Government could be generating real revenues from its websites to reduce the deficit or support the NHS or whatever. Instead it is using its inventory to direct folks like the Mrs to its EU lie machine.

Quite simply Dodgy Dave is now stealing your cash to lie to you.

A touch of Aunt T on A Level Results day – Daughter Olaf sails into Oxford

Okay my hard working younger sister did not get into Oxford but she gained entrance to a place in the Fens which is, I gather, almost as good.
