At the beginning of June we lodged an allegation that the Prime Minister had lied about an opponent during the election campaign. We viewed this as not just unlawful, but serious and potentially damaging because it occurred during a live election broadcast attended by Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn. This programme was watched on the BBC by many millions – a large number of whom would not yet have made their minds up on how to cast their vote.
As you can see at the above links we’ve notified four separate regulatory or police bodies whom we felt needed to be aware of a potential criminal offence.
With the Crown Prosecution Service finally replying in an email today, all four have now responded.

And the final email in this exchange was sent this afternoon at 5:39 pm:
Not surprisingly, plenty of questionable and contradictory points have been made above by the CPS and we won’t be outlining or challenging these until we’ve received Nick Vamos’ email and got in touch with him.
But rest reassured that this blog post will be updated as and when that happens.
