Rupert Murdoch has accused the UK government of making “false claims” and scaring voters into backing Britain to remain in the EU.
Murdoch posted the tweet below on Thursday:
UK Brexit campaign gathers force as government makes obviously false claims aimed at scaring voters. Early days yet.

Murdoch — whose company News UK owns The Times, The Sunday Times, and The Sun — has emerged as a clear supporter of a Brexit and has backed ministers who are campaigning for Britain to leave the EU on June 23.
Last month, he offered his congratulations to Justice Secretary Michael Gove, tweeting:
“Congratulations Michael Gove. Friends always knew his principles would overcome his personal friendships.”
