'Serious allegations' against Vote Leave campaign threaten 'foundations of our democracy'


Lib Dem Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey has written to Yvette Cooper, Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, calling on her to investigate the alleged illegal activity of Vote Leave.

Davey urges Cooper to: "immediately launch an enquiry" into the "serious accusations" against the Vote Leave campaign, including "deliberate overspending, illegal coordination and a significant cover-up of their relationship with the smaller campaign group BeLeave"

Davey explains that allegations against Cambridge Analytica, and the legal opinions of Helen Mountfield QC and Clare Montgomery, only strengthen the case for an urgent investigation.

He addresses Cooper, explaining that "if true, these allegations call into question the very foundations of our democracy, and I have no doubt you will agree with me that full disclosure must be given to Parliament and the British public on this extremely serious matter."
