Nobody voted Brexit because of Russian bots

In European Parliament on Thursday 10 October, Claire challenges the EU commission head-on over a motion about Russian interference in elections which argued that British voters were “duped” by Russian bots and misinformation peddled on social media. She reaffirms her belief in the sanctity of democracy by calling these statements untrue and stating that the British people knew exactly what they were voting for.

Claire then further goes on to point out that it is in fact the EU that interferes with European elections, especially when they have referendums – where Ireland, France, Denmark were told to vote again until they get the right result. She finishes by purporting that a vote for this motion would bestow upon the EU the powers to censor what citizens of member states would be able to see or read, thereby restricting freedom of speech and exchange of ideas.
