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.

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.
