David Cameron assured the public that the £9m referendum leaflet will cost considerably less after exploiting a variety of tax loopholes that he knows.

The Prime Minister made the announcement at a gathering of ‘Remain’ activists in Preston.

“Let me be clear,” said the Prime Minister, leaving everyone in no doubt that he was about to tell the complete and undeniable truth.

Mr Cameron then disappeared briefly before returning and reading out the following statement.

“The payment of the nine millions pounds for these leaflets is a private matter.”
