Do the Leavers know what they are talking about? Penny Mordaunt doesn’t.

In an interview with Andrew Marr, Brexit campaigner Penny Mordaunt gave another example of the Brexiteers’ scare campaign.

The existing member states of the EU all have a veto on whether new members are allowed to join. This is a fact.

Penny Mordaunt says that she doesn’t think that the UK will be able to prevent Turkey joining the EU. “This referendum will be our last chance to have a say on that, we are not going to be consulted or asked to vote on whether we think those countries or others should join.”

She really should know the facts of the situation. If Brexiteers aren’t telling us the truth about this, how can we rely on them to tell us the truth about anything?
