The Election Commission has made its displeasure over the Government's plan to flood the country with a hugely expensive piece of propaganda telling journalists 'We don't think the government should have done it'.
Nigel Farage, the UKIP leader said, "It is an outrage that £10 million is being spent on a pro-EU booklet and mailshot and I am glad that the Electoral Commission agree with me that it is wrong.
"This is our money and it should not be used to promote untruths about the so-called benefits of EU membership. I call on the government to do the right thing and withdraw this document. This must be a free and fair referendum."
There is a petition on the Government website that has already hit 50,000 signatures calling for the Government to stop 'spending British taxpayers’ money on Pro-EU Referendum leaflets' I can only encourage as many people as possible to sign it and send a clear message to the Government. It is our money and he doesn't have our permission to spend it in this way".
