Our money is being used

I have discovered that when a person went online to renew their car tax on the government website and, having paid the fee, they were directed to a page that, in no uncertain terms, influenced them to ‘vote to remain’ in the EU referendum.

There was no counter argument for Brexit.

Once again we are detecting the use of tax-payers’ money to influence one side of the referendum debate. Surely this should be illegal under British Law?

Is it the case that because the government has done it then it is okay?

This referendum has become a ‘one-sided’, tax-payer-funded, distortion of the truth.

There are millions of UK tax-payers that want their view expressed but our Conservative government, that achieved just over 38 per cent of the national vote, a minority of the electorate, refuse to give this majority their say.

Yes, half, if not more Conservatives, want Brexit though Mr Cameron would rather that they were not causing sores under his skin!
