Vote Leave and Stronger In, factchecked, over breakfast

2 June 2016 | Amy Hawkins

We are in the final month of the EU referendum. In just three weeks, voters in Britain will make a once in a generation decision about whether to leave or remain in the European Union. The campaigns on both sides of the debate are pushing their arguments louder than ever, to try and persuade those key undecided voters to side with them on polling day.

The most popular claims we see being made again and again are those on immigration, the economy, and the membership fee. We’ve factchecked the Vote Leave and Stronger In leaflets on these claims, and these were the topics that our Senior Researcher Joseph O’Leary was discussing on this morning’s BBC Radio Shropshire, with presenter Eric Smith. You can listen to the episode in full below.
