Legal challenge against Brexit

Legal challenge against Brexit - British expats living in Spain, France and Italy have launched a legal challenge against the 2016 referendum, arguing that the Leave campaign broke electoral laws, therefore making the Brexit vote unconstitutional. The legal challenge was presented on Tuesday by the pro-EU group “UK in EU Challenge”, which represents Britons living in France, Italy and Spain. In a statement on its website, UK in EU Challenge wrote “recent revelations show beyond reasonable doubt that the Leave campaign cheated in the Brexit referendum”. Almost 80 percent of the estimated 1 to 2 million Brits living in EU countries are of working age or younger. Many of these expats fear their livelihoods and freedom to move around Europe are under threat, a sentiment the group UK in EU Challenge shares.
