Re: "Sounds a bit like the Brexit campaign"
So a campaign can simply promise absolutely anything and everything, regardless of whether it's possible, true or even remotely plausible?
Billions for the NHS! Free cookies for everyone! Flying cars! Unicorns! Dragons! Deportations for anyone who looks at you a bit funny! Eviction for that family down the road with darker skin than you! Free beer! Free cheese wotsits! Instant awesome trade deals with every country in the world! An open but totally closed border with Ireland! Free parking!
Oh yeah, they actually did promise most of that.
