Congrats to the Beeb for finally fact-checking a brexiteer brane speaker.
Bloke phones up:
Studio guest (an academic) is introduced:They need us more than them.
They'll collapse without us.
Lots of other countries are queueing up to leave.
Phone bloke:Not true, all other countries have seen an increase in EU approval since article 50 was passed.
Presenter:They need us, we provide a full third of the EU budget.
They will collapse if we leave whihc is why they are working to prevent it.
Phone bloke has disappeared.A third seems a bit high, we'll get our researchers to look into that.
Our researchers tell us that Britain provides 13% of the EU budget, not a third as the caller suggested.
