This is what I think of Cameron's leaflet

I would like to take a few moments to congratulate David Cameron.

I am of course talking about the EU referendum booklet that was posted though my letterbox this week.

I have read it and I have to say, well done. You have certainly convinced me.

The booklet was full of information, mostly half – truth propaganda designed to frighten us all into voting the way the Government wants us to.

And can I say what good quality paper it was?

That must have set you back a few quid.

Oh! I’m sorry, I meant it must have set us back a few quid, £9 million to be precise.

When I think of what could have been done with £9 million, I seethe with rage at this junk mail that you have put through all our letterboxes, paid for with taxpayers’ money that could have been spent on new schools, treatment for cancer patients, or support for the many homeless I see every week on our streets.

And Cameron is really showing he is a fully paid – up Europhile, pumping out propaganda, to sway the voter whichever way he wants.

That is usually the practice of Junker and the other gophers in Brussels who binge on Champagne and caviar at our expense.

I will take full advantage of the information I have read.

And as for the booklet, I am in two minds whether to use it to put my muddy hiking boots on or post it back to No 10 as many others are going to do.

I probably think the latter, although if I run out of Andrex before then, it may be a handy substitute.

I stated that Cameron has convinced me.

Indeed he has.

Convinced me that we cannot believe anything he says.

He bends the truth in this booklet to his advantage, just as he has done with his offshore money – making.

Well Mr Prime Minister, perhaps you should have funded these booklets from the money you saved dodging tax.

Think of the famous picture of Churchill sticking his two fingers up.

That is exactly what I think of Cameron’s leaflet and his beloved EU.
