The real reason why there should be a second referendum is that the first one was won by breaking the law. Illegal funding was used to influence the vote, provided by shady hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, who also funded Donald Trump.

The real reason we should fear the work of Dominic Cummings

[Cummings] is the man who – according to evidence published by the Electoral Commission – played a central role in a scheme that resulted in Vote Leave being judged to have broken the law. A scheme that constitutes the greatest electoral fraud perpetrated in Britain for more than a century – one that Cummings has refused to come before parliament to answer questions about.

And then, on 23 March 2018, matters came to a head. Shahmir Sanni had come forward. He alleged Vote Leave had deliberately used [Canadian data firm] AIQ to break electoral spending laws, allegations now proven and admitted by Vote Leave. This money – nearly three-quarters of a million pounds – was spent in the crucial last four days of the campaign. The period which, by Cummings’s own reckoning, tipped the vote in Vote Leave’s favour: when it served 1.5 billion ads to just seven million people it had identified as “persuadable” or “shy” voters.

If you have a chance, watch the Channel 4 docudrama, Brexit - The Uncivil War. It tells the whole story brilliantly, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Dominic Cummings.
