Every single news bulletin seems to include yet another theory about what may or may not happen depending on the outcome of a vote that polls suggest could be very close.
Clearly it’s a hugely significant decision, but what bothers me is the fact that those who expound these various theories are supposedly experts in their respective field, yet how can two people be an authority on the same subject, yet have differing, often polar opposite views?

- The money we don’t pay to the EU could be used to improve the NHS
- David Cameron wants us to stay
