EU referendum: Alistair Darling denies 'Project Fear'

Lord Darling says campaigners for the UK to remain in the EU are carrying out a much-needed "reality check" on the consequences of leaving - not Project Fear, as critics suggest.

In a speech for the Britain Stronger in Europe campaign, he said he had been accused of the same thing during the referendum on Scottish independence.

"I have been here before and nobody is going to stop me asking hard questions," he said.

"It's not Project Fear, in truth it's a reality check, the kind anyone would rightly take before making an enormous decision affecting their lives."
