Leave cheated

by Steve Beasant on 20 July, 2018

Response from Lord Newby on the news that Vote Leave broke electoral law

The following article was written by Richard Newby and published on Jul 17 on the Lib Dem website.

Today the Electoral Commission ruled on what we all knew – Leave cheated.

Vote Leave have been fined £60,000 for incomplete and inaccurate expenses and for working jointly with pro-Brexit group BeLeave – and using this to get around their spending ceiling of £7 million.

And, lest we forget, the referendum result was just 51.9% for Leave and 48.1% for Remain.

It is now clearer than ever that we need a vote on the final deal that Theresa May brings back from Brussels.

A vote where everyone plays by the rules.

One where there is a clear deal on the table for the British public to accept or reject.

And most importantly – a vote with an option to Remain in the EU.
