@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Report here is obfuscation. Issue isn't the total collective campaign spending, it’s about who broke the law & how. #Remain campaigns were fined for failing to submitting returns correctly. They didn’t act fraudulently to overspend. The largest fine was to Lib Dems, £18K. 1/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Carole Cadwalladr & others have reported extensively: The #Leave campaigns have been found guilty of serious breaches of the law by the Electoral Commission and the ICO and are now under criminal investigation for other offences. 2/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Vote Leave – Official Leave campaign: Fined £61K by Electoral Commission for colluding with BeLeave & overspending the £7m limit by £500k. They paid #AIQ this amount for Facebook ads in the name of BeLeave. Vote Leave now referred to Met/NCA for further suspected fraud. 3/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla E.g. Vote Leave spent almost a third of its budget on Facebook ads in final week. Illegally used Facebook data to target swing voters with ads promoting racism and lies about the NHS. 4/…
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla They also ran an illegal campaign called Football £50 million. A scam competition with a fake £50m prize in the 2016 European championships – they used it to harvest data & target a difficult-to-reach audience with Facebook ads. 5/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla BeLeave/Darren Grimes: Fined 20K for knowingly colluding with Vote Leave. Now referred to Met/NCA for further suspected fraud.

@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Leave.EU now referred to Met/NCA for further suspected fraudulent behavior: Illegally sending data out of the country for the development of analytics aps. Also suspected that their funds came from illegal sources abroad. 8/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Leave campaigns are also part of the #MuellerInvestigation into Russian interference in elections and links between Brexit and the Trump elections. The ICO is collaborating with the Mueller investigations on this. 9/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla The DCMS Committee has found that there was malicious foreign intervention into the #Referendum and the result was procured illegally. #Leave or #Remain, we were all betrayed. We are supporting @FairVote & fighting for a public enquiry 😐 /End
