In a shocking move, acting Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey announced that there needs to be an investigation into the EU referendum and its result. The party will table an amendment to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
The amendment will reportedly call for an inquiry within six months of the bill being passed.
The inquiry is likely to look into former Prime Minister David Cameron’s decision to hold the referendum in the first place, the finances and the conduct of politicians during the campaign.
This will also include the Government’s handling of the Article 50 process.
The Lib Dems are also planning to look at the Tories’ handling of key Brexit decisions, which includes the Government’s refusal to hold a second referendum.

One Twitter user called Paul said: “I’m demanding you anti-democratic losers STFU and go live in an EU country if you love it that much.
“The only catastrophe you should be holding an inquiry into is the hideous trouncing you and the other lying, anti-Brexit losers got in the election.
“A clue is in the result.”
