    Oh dear, poor Sadiq Khan upset by a blogger, so much so he sent his Islamic Army to try and con the blogger. Smart blogger knew what was happening.

    When the rat Khan gets voted out the hate speech Islamic loving police will be disbanded.

    As you must be aware it was dreamt up by someone who wants us to remain. They've got so many slants on exactly the same point I'm amazed they didn't make it a round 100.
    I got to 25 before something jumped out at me.

    If you search "Cornwall funding from the EU" you get a very different figure.
    Is this person lying or just poorly researched?
    Did you read it before posting it?

    In either case this list is toilet paper, sorry.

    Point 28 - funding was made available by the EIB. Obviously this cretin didn't expect anyone to check their claims
    Oh dear.

    All this was brought up at the time of the referendum and each and everyone of them should had been ironed out during the three years everyone had been arguing about the result, the remainers have been playing for time all along costing us billions because we still remain in the EU.
