Investigate Better Together "New Advice"

This petition had 14,951 supporters


Better Together after finding a poll in favour of the Yes campaign are now in talks with each other to put together some kind of deal. While there is very little chance that the Scottish Electorate will believe them anyway based on the fact that they ensured that DEVO MAX was not on the ballot, it raises serious questions about the electoral rules.

Part 4 sections 1-4 of the Scottish Referendum Act 2013 stipulates that campaigners are not allowed to release new documentation to the public within 28 days of the referendum date except in response to a direct enquiry.

As no such information has been sought this meeting with better together and subsequent advice that will apparently be published is in contrevention of said act.

As there is less than 10 days left of the referendum campaign, we believe that it is the commissions responsibility to investigate the matter under law and if necessary advise better together to cease and desist or risk allowing the rules of the referendum to be breached.
