Ben Bradshaw MP asserts it is “highly probable” Russia secretly swayed the EU referendum result

Yesterday saw an emergency debate in the Commons about the situation in Aleppo and there was obviously much discussion about the actions of the Russian Government. But in an astounding intervention, the former Labour Cabinet Minister, Ben Bradshaw, managed to bring our EU referendum into it.

Bradshaw – one of the most vocal supporters of the Remain campaign, who was among the 91 who voted against endorsing the triggering of Article 50 last week – seems so unwilling to accept that the British people voted to Leave the EU by fair means, that he effectively accused the Russians of foul play.

The Exeter MP actually said that Russian cyber warfare was probably responsible for swaying the referendum result in favour of Brexit.”We don’t have the evidence for that yet, but I think it’s highly probable,” he declared in the House of Commons. Some people really just can’t accept that the British people didn’t accept their worldview. Incredible stuff.
