Let’s imagine, hypothetically – just for argument’s sake – that the Leave campaign did break electoral law. Apart from prosecutions and fines, what should happen as a consequence of that? 1/13 (yes, 13, sorry)…
If an MP breaks the law to get elected, the result can be annulled: they lose their seat and the voters get a by-election. But a referendum result isn’t a person, doesn’t hold an elected post, and can’t be held accountable. 2/13
There’s no equivalent law for annulling referendum results – partly because the referendum was, as the #FPBE crowd love to say, “advisory”. It has no legal force, so there’s nothing to annul. It has always been entirely up to MPs whether they implement the result. 3/13
