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.
7. He is asked "SHOULD we or SHOULD we not be inside the Single Market, do you WANT us to stay inside the Single Market, yes or no?"
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."
13. This time the question is: "After Brexit, WILL we be in the European Single Market, Yes or No?" and the answer is simply "No".
15. The answer to the question "Does this mean coming out of the Single Market" becomes "Yes it ABSOLUTELY DOES".
16. People begin to deny the evidence of their own eyes. Andrew Neil, for example, berating someone for misrepresenting what people said
17. Andrew claimed Michael Gove CATEGORICALLY said "A vote to leave is a vote to leave membership of the single market".
18. This is not restricted to television presenters, and the Marr show is referred to in the House of Commons by a director of Vote Leave
19. He said "In particular" Michael Gove made it clear that leaving the EU meant leaving the Single Market
21. "Many of" them "heard him" say so "specifically" that "leaving the Single market was accounted for in the vote"
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/…
23. While looking for causation, but I guess I'm old fashioned like that.
24. However, that doesn't take away the fact it was a remarkable experiment. Well done, @AndrewMarr9!
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
31. Regardless of you attempting to repeat it, @AndrewMarr9 can you on, the show, now clarify Michael Gove only said 'Should'?
32. The words mean very different things, and as John F Kennedy once said: "Only an educated and informed people will be a free people."
33. And "That the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all."
