    2. For those unaware, Solomon Asch conducted a test in 1951 involving a group of people likening one line to a collection of other lines

    3. Only one person in the group was actually being tested. The others in the group were acting under instruction.

    4. At the start of the test, the group would begin to accurately ascertain which two lines were the same length.

    5. As the test continues the group begin agreeing on the wrong line, and the person being tested starts to deny the evidence of his own eyes

    6. The new "Marr" experiment begins by asking Michael Gove a question in front of a much larger audience.

    9. At first Andrew Marr correctly states that Michael said we "SHOULD" and said he was "very clear about that."

    11. This time Andrew says he asked "will we be in it, or out of it?" to which Michael replied: "No we'll be out of it."

    17. Andrew claimed Michael Gove CATEGORICALLY said "A vote to leave is a vote to leave membership of the single market".

    22. I admit the "It was on television" measure of what people expected is a new one on me. I still prefer polls twitter.com/ComRes/status/…

    25. May I suggest you attempt to repeat the test based on the fact Michael Gove also argued for £100 million a week for the NHS

    26. Andrew could remind Boris of the things he said about the NHS on the campaign cornwalllive.com/health-bosses-…

    27. Andrew can repeat what Michael Gove (didn't) say to people in the Newspaper segment

    28. Nick Clegg can be accused of being undemocratic if he won't admit Michael Gove said what Andrew said he said, that he didn't say.

    29. This works because, if the campaign slogan "Let's take back control of our Borders" implies, as Andrew argued, leaving the Single Market

    34. The Single Market argument may need to be reopened in the future, and the general public shouldn't be fed just any line again
