Is there a public backlash towards the EU? I certainly think so. And there will be a similar backlash against Scotland, perhaps even more severe, if it gains independence.

Made stuff up that wasn’t said - OK, then...

Extrapolation means ‘estimating or concluding something that existing trends will continue or a current method will remain applicable’ by the definition I see in front of me right now.

Extrapolation is not a lie. It is a reasonable conclusion based on the evidence.

You, however, may choose to use alternative evidence to extrapolate from.

Whilst a more accurate term would be "assumption", I'm heading off topic so I will keep my contribution short and sweet.

Debatable use of "reasonable".

Extrapolation may not be a lie, but saying
Quote:
Reasons given included ... ...an unwillingness to buy EU goods given the attitude of the EU to trade with us in recent months.
when that reason wasn't given, or even mentioned, isn't extrapolation...

Or are you saying that would have been the answer to a question the survey didn't ask, but if they did, it would have been that?
