Now it's time for post-lies politics
It's common knowledge that a large fraction of the British press was happy to lie in order to promote the Brexit cause. But what do you do when it becomes obvious to everybody that what you have been saying is rubbish? You just act as though you'd never said it. InFacts has done a great job pointing out examples where newspapers are putting out articles that directly contradict what they were saying just a few days ago, without batting an eyelid. In a similar vein, Vote Leave has been dismantling large parts of its website in the hope, I presume, that its supporters will forget what they were told (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/brexit-vote-leave-wipes-nhs-350m-claim-and-rest-of-its-website-after-eu-referendum-a7105546.html
). And of course, the Brexit politicians have been swift to deny that they were making the promises and claims that they were making. On that last point, it may be that the lies were collective rather than individual: for example, I don't know whether Farage made the £350m per week claim, but he didn't exactly go out of his way to correct it.
