We already know electoral law was broken. Now Aaron Banks is under investigation because https://t.co/pbNTdJCphb stands accused of spending foreign money.

Brexit must be put on hold until we know the extent of these crimes against our democracy.https://t.co/WrJcXng8o7

No right-minded person would think Brexit should continue while the National Crime Agency are investigating Arron Banks.

Thankfully there are no right-minded people in government.
