EU: busting the myths that Remain is best for the 99%

As we approach voting day for the EU referendum, panic has set in for the establishment and 'project fear' has been stepped up. The official campaigns on both sides have bandied about arguments full of lies and misrepresentations. We answer three key questions: Does the EU build international solidarity?
