No, disproven. Or rather - proven to be abject lies. The UK has never 'lost control' either of our borders or of our country. The EU does not and never has 'ruled' Britain, and has never had any desire to do so. The UK does not require the approval of the EU to police our borders, and has never had to seek such approval.
While we maintained nominal control of immigration external to the EU we did surrender control of immigration from within the EU.
The problem as I see it with the EU is the intention of the hierarchy of the EU to move towards ever closer political union - effectively a United States of Europe with in the fullness of time a European defence force. I voted to remain within the European economic community - not the EU
Apologies for going off topic.
But the referendum image given - remember Farage's poster? - was that we were being overrun by hundreds of thousands or non-EU immigrants over which we had no control. Lies at every turn.
