Another day, another Leave campaigner fined for breaking law over referendum

Following news earlier this week of Vote Leave being fined £40,000 comes news of yet another piece of law breaking by Leave campaigners.

This time it is Labour Leave being fined. It has to pay up £9,000 after being caught by the Electoral Commission breaking election finance rules for the referendum:

Failure to deliver accurate campaign expenditure return; failure to deliver accurate weekly pre-poll donation report for 2016 EU Referendum.

One element in this was a donation from Arron Banks’ Better for the Country Limited, which Labour Leave failed to declare.
