    Is Facebook deliberately trying to close down the pages of Brexit supporting groups?

    UPDATE: 3.00 pm Monday 4th February Thanks to a friend who passed our case on to a friend of his who works for Facebook, I have now discovered that we were hacked. A politically motivated hack without a doubt, and as other pro-Leave groups are experiencing difficulties, the hacking may be far and wide.    From Andrew Allison, Head of Campaigns.  I ask the question because Facebook closed down the page for Leavers of Britain recently. Lucy Harris, the founder of Leavers of Britain, told me that she submitted a request for a review but then they locked it down permanently. She then kicked up a fuss and got it back. She shouldn't have had to kick up a fuss, but if you have ever tried to contact Facebook you will know how unresponsive it is.  Just over a week ago, I got a message via Facebook that a video of a speech by Julia Lopez MP I had posted on Better Off Out's (BOO) Facebook page had broken its rules. It asked me to contact them. I thought that was strange because although all footage on parliamentlive.tv is protected by parliamentary copyright, you are permitted to use the material as long as you abide by the terms and conditions. I had. And the content of Julia Lopez's speech hadn't broken any rules, either.

    Next Tuesday's vote in the Commons could be more decisive than any we've had so far

    The following is today's Brexit bulletin sent daily to all members of The Freedom Association. To join, please click here.  Theresa May's Plan B looked very similar to Plan A because it was Plan A in disguise. Not heavily disguised - there was just a little bit of tinsel around it to make it look slightly different. Next Tuesday, MPs will debate a Government motion that the House has considered the written statement laid before it yesterday. All very vanilla. This motion, of course, will be amended, and the amendments have already started rolling in.  Arch-Remainer Hilary Benn, the chairman of the Brexit Committee, has tabled an amendment calling for a series of indicative votes. He called for this in his question to the PM yesterday. Dominic Grieve, who can barely be described as a Conservative MP these days, has tabled an amendment that would give MPs the chance to back different Brexit options, including a second referendum. But the amendment that everyone is talking about is the one from Yvette Cooper, which is backed by people like Nick Boles, Oliver Letwin and Nicky Morgan.
