I am confused; are eu?

Facts and myths surround the In/Out debate. To find neutral information to inform my own decision-making has proved to be tricky. No longer.

Fullfact.org and ukandeu.ac.uk puncture myths on both sides of the argument and provide useful and independent facts. The House of Commons Library is another good source of considered information.

The need for precision is often overstated. The need for accuracy and truth cannot be. For instance, John Maynard Keynes is often quoted for having said: “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, Sir?”

In fact, he neither said or wrote it. The quote is by another economist, Paul Samuelson, 1970 winner of the Nobel prize. Does that make the point any less valid?
