This activist paid for an advert in a London newspaper because he is “fed up with the rubbish being talked about immigration.”
If you’ve been following the news, you’re likely aware that today, the UK votes on whether or not to leave the European Union. As Mashable relays, you’re likely also aware that the entire debate is nonsensical and propaganda-fueled. Because misinformation abounds, few can agree on any point.
One man who doesn’t care to argue anymore about the issue is Laurence Taylor, an overnight sensation due to the ad he placed in the London-based Metro Newspaper.
The activist wrote:
“Paid for out of my own pocket because I’m fed up with the rubbish being talked about immigration. Vote Remain or Leave, up to you, but do it based on facts not fear :)”
“…oh by the way if we Leave and we want access to the single market (40% of our exports I think), then we have to accept free movement of people…We could always try and negotiate something different but how successful do you think that would be given that everyone else including Norway has to? OK I’ll stop there. Just getting my money’s worth:),” he added.
Taylor also included a pie-chart which illustrates the reality of immigration – one of the most debated topics.
Today, Laurence Taylor wins the internet. And, Twitter users agree.
