    Arron Banks referred to the National Crime Agency

    They are not sure where all his donation came from.

    But I'm sure the Remain campaign had loads of money from the Russians too.

    Electoral Commission have referred Arron Banks to the National Crime Agency.

    Nothing will change. At this point I expect to end up with him in prison for rigging an election but May still going through with it because of a non-binding, illegally obtained barely-a-majority constitutes the will of the people.

    He'll never go to prison. All that will happen is he will have to pay a fine and maybe get a suspended sentence.

    Leave.EU was not the official Brexit campaign before the referendum, so even if Banks was found to have violated a bunch of spending rules, the Brexiteers would argue that the campaign that secured Leave was the one that didn't breach any rules.

    The argument seems to be, they were only a bit corrupt and that it probably didn't influence the vote much.

    I don't get it, how corrupt does it have to be before the result is undermined.

    If this was a vote in Africa the West would be calling them out for corruption and not recognising the result.

    At this point can we just go straight to the civil war. Easy win, to be honest. Most leavers will give themselves the heart attack just over the sheer indignation of having to stand up for what they believe in.

    Or just standing up.

    So not only are leave voters uneducated but they've been duped by Russian money. Fucking thick gullable cunts.

    The Sunday Times report sources say Prime Minister Theresa May has secured concessions from the European Union to keep the whole of the UK in a customs union after Brexit in order to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland

    lmao... "concessions". So basically exactly what they wanted.

    All of the rules, none of the say.

    Started work yesterday in a new job as a Database Administrator. A contractor who works with me was complaining about getting let off from a major project for HSBC because Brexit uncertainty meant that they didn't know what to do regarding data storage cost and location, so the project was abandoned.

    The problem? This twat voted for Brexit. He complained for about half an hour about how the leave campaign lied to him and how no he sees there is confusion and a lack of leadership regarding leave. Only took him two years and redundancy to figure out something more sane people realised immediately.

    Making up your own mind is hard. Far easier to believe in unicorns and rainbows.

    Wouldn't want to work with any fucking idiot like that. There's some fruit that needs picking, but I suspect he hasn't got the braincells to do that.

    Anyone see the story about the governments supposed PR plan?

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/nov/06/leaked-plan-to-sell-brexit-deal-measured-success-is-the-narrative

    Of course its been disowned by the government, but what's funny about it was that it was merely supposed to celebrate and agreement on the deal *within the cabinet*, rather than the EU. You know, like Chequers was agreed. Amazing.

    Cabinet ministers have been invited to read a near-complete draft of the proposed EU withdrawal agreement - although the text does not include the contentious Irish backstop proposals

    Then what is the fucking point of that?!

    Fucking hell. How is this level of horsehit even possible. Does the BBC or anyone else not drag these fuckers over the coals for this stuff? It's a never-ending shitshow.
