Regardless of political affiliations, the behaviour of all involved in trying to persuade us to stay in/get out of Europe is disgraceful.
It is hard to believe that any reader can still believe a word that they are hearing from any one of the politicians involved in the referendum farrago as increasingly unlikely statistics are trotted out to support the brand.
As a result, the next two weeks are going to be close to unbearable, although music stations and DVDs could have greater popularity than ever before. Things are so bad that I might even be reduced to watching the football.
As the opposition (i.e. other members of his own party) politely keep pointing out George Osborne’s track record as an economic seer lacks credibility. Therefore the figures that he is trotting out to support the case for staying in Europe need to be taken with a pinch of salt. The same applies to the words of wisdom from that nice Mr Cameron.
However, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Nigel Farage can give them more than a run for their money, seemingly unashamedly inventing facts to support their case on the hoof with zero justification.
If it weren’t so sad, this would be funny but these people are playing with the futures of every man woman and child in this country and, some might suggest, across Europe.
When it comes to the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn seems to have decided that this debate is one to steer clear of, allowing the Conservative great and good to beat the hell out of each other, while looking cooler than he ever has before.
If the Lib Dems still exist, it hasn’t been apparent in recent weeks, while the Scottish Nationalists seem to be happy to take a back seat and allow the result to present a potential springboard to independence.
Frankly, one might argue that we have reached the point where British politicians have stooped so low that perhaps we are better off being ruled by faceless European bureaucrats, even if they do not have the same mandate.
All of this means that the great British public is being asked to make one of the most significant decisions of their collective lives on a subject that few if any understand and without the full facts or very many facts at all.
Indeed, the garbled information that we do receive is making it harder to decide rather than easier. As an example of democracy in action, this is a disaster that is likely to harm our own prospects but also those of future generations.
Whenever I am asked to make predictions prior to a Budget, there is always a sense of fear that a week later somebody will point out what a fool I have made of myself.
In the same light, it would be fascinating for a major media outlet to keep a detailed record of everything said in the run-up to June 23 and then repeat it back to the eventual winners a couple of years from now. That might forever shake our faith in all dodgy politicians (i.e. all politicians give or take the odd misfit), which would be no bad thing.
As an alternative, perhaps it is time to institute a criminal offence of making falls statements during an election or referendum campaign. The penalty need not be unreasonable - how about death?
