Vote Leave, which was the official Brexit campaign backed by Michael Gove and Boris Johnson, has been fined and referred to the police for breaking the law. Vote Leave’s unlawful funnelling of cash through the youth-focused campaign group BeLeave was first exposed by Channel 4 News and The Guardian back in March when three whistleblowers came forward.
