Sir Edward Davey was asked by Mishal Husain for his thoughts regarding the story in the Sun concerning Her Majestys comments on the EU. He said “If we pull out of the EU we will destroy our country because Scotland will go independant, the Peace Process in Northern Ireland will be under real pressure and we won’t have something called the United Kingdom or Great Britain any more. I doubt the Queen wants that”. He was then thanked by Ms Husain. Why was he allowed to make such a statement and not challenged to provide evidence for his claims.
