Predictable and predicted.

A worthwhile piece appears in setting out the factual errors in Leave.EU's campaign. Course, Michael Emerson, Associate Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for European Policy Studies and former EU Ambassador to Moscow, has got it wrong too and is not being strictly honest.

Those who have read Flexcit will spot the obvious deception at play and why Leave.EU will not be intellectually equipped to counter such an attack. They have already squandered their credibility.

I could go to town on fisking Emerson, but there's little actual merit in doing so since Leave.EU won't learn the lessons and will not modify its approach. Suffice to say a thorough command of the issues and a credible Brexit plan would have saved them such embarrassment, but who are we to question marketing experts? 

I am still certain that Elliot's Vote to Leave operation is not fit to be the lead campaign but Leave.EU seems determined to fall into all the traps without reference to battle at hand. This will be about our prestige versus theirs. By the time it goes to the wire, our reputation will be in tatters. Andy Wigmore isn't up to the job and Mr Banks doesn't know what he's doing.
