Foreign states may have interfered in EU referendum. Will we get another chance to vote?

Answer: No.

Foreign governments such as Russia and China may have been involved in the collapse of a voter registration website in the run-up to the EU referendum, a committee of MPs has claimed.

A report by the Commons public administration and constitutional affairs committee (PACAC) said MPs were deeply concerned about the allegations of foreign interference in last year’s Brexit vote.

The committee does not identify who may have been responsible, but has noted that both Russia and China use an approach to cyber-attacks based on an understanding of mass psychology and of how to exploit individuals.

The findings follow repeated claims that Russia has been involved in trying to influence the US and French presidential elections.

    Will we get another chance to vote? Would that interfere with May’s arrogant, autocratic and ego-maniacal need to be “She Who Must Be Obeyed”? Yes it would, so No we will NOT!

    I dare say that had Remain won by just a tiny margin the hard right wingers and the fascist UKIP would have been screaming for a second referendum, but they are happy that having cheated their way through the campaign they got the result they wanted.

    What ever goes wrong its Russia or China’s fault, if the vote goes the wrong way it was Putin’s fault if the US and its troll’s can’t get a regime change its Russia’s fault.
    So Russia and China are the great escape for the west the UK sells weapons to murder people in the Yemen don’t tell me its Russia’s fault the UK backed Pinochet to murder thousands don’t tell me all these thing where down to the Russian’s

    I’ve always said that I’m not sure that the result would have been any different; there were people in both sides who were clueless. MAY have interfered? Evidence would be good. Also, how did this alleged interference affect the vote? The deadline for voter registration was extended and we don’t know which way those who filed to register on time would have voted. It is also interesting that people who voted to Remain say that, if the shoe were on the other foot, there would be people throwing their toys out of the pram, yet, in previous referenda, the E.U. has insisted on another vote, to get the “right” result. I refer back to my first sentence.

    Not down to the normal government incompetence then!
    Was it also Russia’s and China’s fault with every other government website collapse?
    They’ve always failed to hold up and also give so little of what was promised!

    Foreign states definitely interfered with the referendum Barrack Obama, 27 eu national governments the eu, and yet they failed and we still voted out, so no reason to hold another referendum because the foreign influence failed miserably.
