Britain's Electoral Commission fines Leave.EU over Brexit vote spending

One of the main Brexit campaign groups in Britain's 2016 European Union referendum was fined 70,000 pounds on Friday for incorrectly reporting what it spent and exceeding a limit on expenditure, the Electoral Commission said.

Posner said: "The rules we enforce were put in place by Parliament to ensure transparency and public confidence in our democratic processes".

The commission also found that Leave.EU, co-founded by millionaire Brexit backer Arron Banks, inaccurately reported three loans it had received.

The commission report said: 'Through its investigation, the Commission also has reasonable grounds to suspect that the responsible person for Leave.EU committed criminal offences and she has therefore been referred to the Metropolitan Police'.

It also exceeded the limit for campaigners who weren't registered to any party by at least 10%, and delivered inaccurate and incomplete spending and transaction returns.

"Leave.EU exceeded its spending limit and failed to declare its funding and its spending correctly".

"The Electoral Commission is a "Blairite Swamp Creation" packed full of establishment "Remoaners", Banks said.

The group, which was not the official Brexit campaign, failed to include at least £77,380 in its spending return. "The level of fine we have imposed has been constrained by the cap on the Commission's fines".

But it found no evidence that controversial tech firm Cambridge Analytica had made donations or provided paid-for services, and its role was limited to "initial scoping work".

Leave.EU and Cambridge Analytica had previously denied working together on the Brexit campaign.

"The Electoral Commission went big game fishing and found a few "aged" dead sardines on the beach". Leave.EU was not the officially designated "leave" campaign group during the referendum.

It was also criticised for failing to report services from USA strategy firm Goddard Gunster when it should have done. Banks said. "What a shambles, we will see them in court".
