The leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party Ruth Davidson received an ovation last night after outing the Leave campaign’s lies and inaccurate figures used in their propaganda.
Facing Boris Johnson and other key ‘Outers’ Davidson said she “can’t let it stand that you sell a blatant untruth two days before a referendum”, citing the Leave campaign’s claim that 60 per cent of our laws are made in the EU, which is “simply not true”.
Only 13 per cent of our laws, according to the independent House of Commons Library, are made in the EU. In the last five-year parliament it was four per cent.
