These people did lie to get the majority to vote to leave, but the majority still did vote.

I’m not sure. Strictly speaking, yes, they did. But the Leave campaign still behaved unethically. People cannot be expected to educate themselves — they should, but they won’t — and whenever a popular vote is called for politicians are expected to present the electorate with facts, not fiction. All Johnson and Gove wanted was to elbow Cameron out of the way: they NEVER wanted to win. They hoped to use the British electorate as leverage. I hope they go down in history as the irresponsible brats that they are.

Let this be a cautionary tale for Americans: it might happen to them, too (and sooner than you think). What began as a bit of a prank played on the GOP might be their downfall.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
