We have been informed by the Metropolitan Police that they will be taking no action as a result of the investigation referred by the Electoral Commission into the Leave.EU campaign and Ms Liz Bilney.

They have concluded that the Leave.EU campaign did not break the law during the 2016 referendum.

The disgraceful political collusion between the Electoral Commission, the Damian Collins “Remain biased” DCMS Committee, and a number of leading Remain MPs, demonstrates a serious abuse of public office and we will be demanding a full public investigation into their actions.

We will be writing to the Prime Minster today demanding a public inquiry into the actions of the Electoral Commission.

I am today calling for the resignation of Damian Collins and the CEO of Electoral Commission as a result of today’s news.

The Electoral Commission have serious questions to answer about political bias and whether it is fit for purpose as a regulator.

The management board is overseen by third-rate politicos and people who have shown clear political bias. The chairman himself described Brexit as a “panoply of Eurosceptic nonsense” and one of the EC board called for a second referendum!

The investigation has taken a huge personal toll on Liz Bilney and her family, and the harassment and lies perpetrated by anti-Brexit MPs is disgraceful. MPs like Stephen Kinnock & Ian Lavery should apologise to Liz and the 1.5 million supporters of Leave.EU they tried to smear.

During the last 2 years, the Metropolitan Police have been professional and thorough. They spent many hours investigating our case and they should be commended for doing a difficult job in a difficult political climate. They remained impartial and operated with complete integrity.

We would like to thank the Metropolitan Police Commissioner for giving her officers her full support at all times.

Arron Banks
Chairman of Leave.EU
