Yet another case of rule-breaking by Brexit campaigners: Charity Commission takes action over Institute of Economic Affairs

The Charity Commission has found serious breaches of charity rules by the Institute of Economic Affairs in campaigning for a hard Brexit:

A prominent rightwing thinktank has been accused of “misconduct and mismanagement” and issued with a formal legal warning by the Charity Commission after using its resources to campaign for a hard Brexit…

The official warning requires the IEA to implement a procedure for its reports to be signed off by trustees before publication in future and undertake in writing not to carry out political campaigning again. [The Guardian]

Another one for the long, long list of rule-breaking by Brexit campaigners.

Note: Pete Moorey has a useful analysis of what the ruling means for other charities.
