In 2001 the government of the day set up an independent body charged with overseeing the way political parties conduct themselves and their funding.
It is known as the Electorial Commission.
It ensures that elections are fair and not in any way fraudulent.
It has taken action a number of times to protect the voter and our democracy.
After the referendum, it found the Vote Leave had broken various rules serious enough for a parliamentary committee to call Cummings to parliament to answer their question.
Cummings refused and was therefore in contempt of parliament.
He is in contempt to this day.
He is going to abolish the Electorial Commission.
Whatever your party politics this must surely alarm you. .
