Nigel Farage, Brexit party leader, has responded to a report that found that there was no Russian meddling in the 2016 Brexit referendum. Nigel said: “So, no evidence of Russian interference in the referendum. Some serious apologies are due.”
This comes as a gutting blow to the remainers who had always looked upon excuses on why the remain side lost in the referendum. This Russian interference conspiracy theory was one of the key narratives that were continually being pushed by not only the remainers but the fake news mainstream media. It’s unbelievable that they could sell this fake false narrative for as long as they did without evidence saying the claim as fact.
The telegraph said that Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee reportedly found that the Kremlin did not attempt to interfere in the Brexit vote.
Labour Party Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy has had to publicly accept the leaked documents finding live to the nation on the Sky News Kay Burley show this morning.
Lisa Nandy said: “My feeling about the referendum is that people made their own minds up and the test facing our country is now is to pull together to get a good deal,” Lisa went on to say. “They voted the way they want to vote on both the Remain and Leave side,”
On Monday it was announced by the ISC Chairman that businessman, Arron Banks, who was the head of the unofficial leave campaign group Leave.eu “is not the subject of criticism in the ‘Russia’ report to be laid before Parliament this week”.
Mr Banks responded by saying “I am not surprised. I have been exonerated by the NCA of all the crazy conspiracy theories. It is time to move on,”.
Even though Russia did not interfere with the EU Brexit referendum, it was said in today’s report that Russia did try to “influence” the Scottish independence referendum back in 2014 saying it was “the first post-Soviet interference in a Western democratic election”.
Another Brexit MEP responded to this report today on Twitter. Martin Daubney wrote: “After all the hysteria that Brexit was fixed by the Russians… turns out it wasn’t.
“Instead, Russia wanted Scottish independence to succeed.
“A lot of humble pie to be eaten by conspiracy theory Remoaners today.”
