Is Brexit worth it?
That’s the question campaigners are trying to raise with a big, red battle bus.
The vehicle stops off in High Street North, East Ham, on Wednesday afternoon for the first day of a national tour.
The bus parodies the one used by Vote Leave during the referendum campaign, whose claim that the UK sends the European Union £350 million a week the UK Statistics Authority called “a clear misuse of official statistics”.
More than 600 people across the UK donated an average £24 to fund the tour, which promises to “tell the truth about the cost of leaving the EU”.
