A mystery man named only as Laurence Taylor took out a full page advert in the Metro newspaper to make the case for Remain.
Mr Taylor is “fed up” and demands people discuss immigration “based on facts not fear” – he claims he paid for the ad out of his own pocket, rich man, or maybe the advertising prices have dipped at the paper, maybe a bit of both perhaps.
The advert shows a simple pie chart at the top
He wrote this with a cheeky emoji
And just to make sure he got his pennies worth
And this is the whole page
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
