THE OFFICIALLY DESIGNATED PRO-BREXIT CAMPAIGN GROUP, VOTE LEAVE, HAS BEEN REFERRED TO THE POLICE AND FINED FOR BREACHING SPENDING RULES IN THE 2016 REFERENDUM.

BRITAIN’S COMMISSION’S DIRECTOR OF POLITICAL FINANCE AND REGULATION, BOB POSNER, SAYS VOTE LEAVE WORKED WITH ANOTHER CAMPAIGN GROUP, BE LEAVE, WHICH SPENT 675,000 POUNDS WITH AGGREGATE IQ, A COMPANY WHICH USES SOCIAL MEDIA DATA TO TARGET VOTERS, UNDER A COMMON PLAN WITH VOTE LEAVE.
