Here @BylineFest @peterjukes introduces @DamianCollins with @carolecadwalla - findings that Electoral Law was broken
Peter reminds us 🇬🇧 has no mueller investigation. The closest we have is @CommonsCMS #FakeNewsInquiry - #hybridwarfare

We don’t have criminal investigation

[yet - Yet!]
Support the Rule of Law. Consensus about evidence. This is not a party political issue @peterjukes
Comprehensive, lively summary by @DamianCollins about @CommonsCMS report then @peterjukes turns to @carolecadwalla who investigated Leave.Eu funding, Vote Leave cheating & Facebook’s role in campaigns
Carole says report is big & it makes some really clear calls in it. Like urging NCA to investigate Banks’ funding sources. So what happened since publication?
Damian says HMG has eight weeks to respond in writing. I too would like statement by HMG about security services have found. Also there should be much higher test for big donors.
Damian says committee doing a deep analysis of all data regarding Aggregate IQ so expect another report late Oct. ICO final report also expected in the autumn. #BylineFest #BylineFestival
Carole describes scale of investigations by @CommonsCMS @ICOnews @ElectoralCommUK - it is a car crash of illegality. It isn’t actually enough. What’s next - a public inquiry?
A: yes we need a british type Mueller investigation says @DamianCollins here @BylineFest
Carole makes strong point: inquiry is URGENT because we’re soon leaving European Union on the basis of electoral fraud

#BylineFest #BylineFestival
.@DamianCollins says electoral fraud has been referred to @metpoliceuk the @ICOnews is a prosecuting body - are there other matters that should be subject to criminal investigation? There is NCA, SFO. NCA won’t talk about operational processes. #BylineFest #BylineFestival
.@DamianCollins admires Mueller process. @peterjukes quips, yes it’s great when people end up in presence. @kyletaylor speaks up about judicial review that @fairvoteuk is undertaking. Damian says public inquiry or judge-led review often arise in response to public campaigns.
.@peterjukes points out Leveson Inquiry arose because journalist-led campaign found support with politicians.

@DamianCollins says a british Mueller would look wider than just #EURef at the same time HMG is entitled to let these various investigations report before kicking off
Q from @peterjukes have you been trolled? What’s this journey been?

@carolecadwalla exhaustion, obsession- still surprised by weirdness of Q of Russian interference. Been targetted by Russian Embassy twitter account.
Then Russian Foreign Ministry account tagged Carole. She said: F*ck. This feels like warfare. Hostile foreign power attaching the Free press. What is FCO doing about this?? @carolecadwalla

@BylineFest #BylineFest
.@DamianCollins says if you’re being trolled by Breitbart, Banks, Russian Embassy you’re doing something right <applause>

#bylinefest #BylineFestival
#BylineFestival Damian refers to @AtlanticCouncil meeting in July. We need international rules on #cyberwarfare

Cc @LawDavF
Questions: given Brexit’s irreversibly why isn’t there a cross-party agreement to press pause?

@DamianCollins wants us to wait for @ElectoralCommUK @ICOnews reports. We have laws in our country that can be used.
.@carolecadwalla says we know @ICOnews lacks power to investigate Arron Banks’ finances

[She states this firmly and it’s not the first time]
#BylineFest #BylineFestival
Question : what would @DamianCollins set of recommendations that would make #PeoplesVote safer?

@DamianCollins says reports includes recommendations. Incl role for ASA & requirement to demonstrate factual basis to ASA #BylineFestival
Question: @DamianCollins explains that tech companies should be liable if they fail to take down inciting materials eg jihadism recruitment videos

#bylinefest #BylineFestival
.@peterjukes says non-domiciles press owners.BeLeave got £622,000 same day the Sun registered with Electoral Commission & next day Sun ran headline that said BeLeave. Plus #CambridgeAnalytica NY offices is inside Murdoch News of the World building. & we know Murdoch & Trump pals
Audience: We have USA funds going to Tax Payers Alliance. No one looks beyond Russia. @DamianCollins we do need to look at sources of funding. @BylineFest #BylineFestival

<thread>1. To reify means to take a process & make it static like an object whilst endowing that “object” with special powers.

Referendum voting was a flawed process in which Electoral Law was broken by domestic organisations. It was also flawed b/c of who was disenfranchised.
2. Following flawed process that was subject to criminal acts, the RESULT was reified.

Meaning, made like an object with magical powers.

The BBC, newspapers & major political parties cooperated in the reification of the result.

UKIP agenda treated as worth appeasing.
3. General Election 2017 called by Prime Minister in April 2017 dissolved the HMG that had sent a leaflet to households dissolved.

Any promise the previous government had made no longer bound the new Parliament.

Carole asks Luke: when did Trump cross your radar?

Luke: summer 2016. When Manafort became campaign manager whom Luke had met in Ukraine who was consultant transforming Yavchenko. What was he doing in Soviet Empire?? He was best connected political lobbist in area. Pre-Steele!
.@lukeharding1968 was investigating Deutsch Bank. DB kept lending even after Trump sued DB for losses arising from #FinCrisis. Dec 2016 Luke met Christopher Steele who said, Follow the Money, Follow the Sex #BylineFest @BylineFest
