UKIP Leader Nigel Farage responding to the new pro-EU campaign leaflet said: "Why is the government spending £10 million of our money telling us what we should think and what we should do?
"This is very much like what happened in 1975, legally it is questionable and morally it is wrong. It was wrong in 1975 and it is wrong now.
"This government scam confirms my view that this referendum will be defined by the battle of the people versus the political class.
"Furthermore, the document is jammed full of lies and inaccuracies including the claim that we currently control our borders. We don't. It is outrageous to suggest otherwise."
