The UK is a member of the Venice commission. The Venice commission’s Code on referendums states “In the event of a failure to abide by the statutory requirements, for instance if the cap on spending is exceeded by a significant margin, the vote must be annulled.”
It’s been established Leave cheated and overspent. Why is Brexit still alive?
Confounding logic, the fact that the referendum was advisory means that it cannot be annulled by the Venice commission.
Incredulously, some politicians are countering this paradox with claims that Brexit has to continue because it is politically binding.
So an unsafe advisory referendum is being used to trump the law.
