In May 2018 and July 2018 the Electoral Commission found that the Leave campaigns, Leave. EU and Vote Leave, used corrupt and illegal practices in the EU Referendum campaign.
Some might say they ‘bent the rules’ or ‘made mistakes’. That’s irrelevant. They broke the law. And in doing so, they flouted the core principles of UK democratic process.
The UK in EU Challenge seeks to restore the democratic balance and undo the outcomes of the Leave campaigners’ illegal behaviour.
In order to do so, we need your help. This may be our last chance to take direct action and prevent an undemocratic Brexit.
