The response to this from many Brexiters just exposes that national sovereignty was never truly dear to them, otherwise they’d be alerted to the potential for the UK to be a target of Russian interference, and an investigation which didn’t bother to investigate interference when this was known to be threat would be a concern.
I do not think there is enough evidence to damn the Brexit referendum or any election over this, so this shouldn’t be used to say that the result was false. However, it does show huge concerns in the democratic integrity of our system. A government which doesn’t bother to investigate this through fears of what could be used against past referendums is not one standing up for democracy, nor are those who shrug their shoulders at it, no matter how many times they point to voting figures or wills of the people. Democracy is more than just your side winning, it’s about fair and free elections, and this report just creates massive warnings over this in the UK.
