The company at the heart of the Facebook scandal boasted of having “vast amounts of data” that could sway the 2016 referendum on membership of the European Union.

A 10-page document written by Cambridge Analytica, headed “Big Data Solutions for the EU Referendum”, claimed it could single out Brexiteers among voters, donors, politicians and even journalists.

MPs today called for a wider investigation into the firm, which has been accused of obtaining 50 million people’s private details harvested from Facebook, amid questions over the role it may have played in the referendum.

The vote was won by Leave by a four-point margin. Cambridge Analytica has denied wrongdoing.
