that in about 25 minutes time. bodies on the line india's biggest stunt industry stunt performers are unknown and on the one i want mates mates the name and women risking it all for the brought lots of bali on how jazeera. in june 26th the u.k. decided to leave the european union in the aftermath amid acrimonious debate on the exact terms of britain's departure questions surfaced about the legitimacy of the referendum that began it all we asked journalist polish ma to investigate now with the brics it saga still mired in divisive political wrangling but showing his report again.
last. october 28th seen hundreds of thousands of protesters marched through central london one of the biggest demonstrations seen in the u.k. in gives a name to get in the 2nd child's to rethink britain's proposed exit from the european union believe on the way the couple is going to cover their own behind by giving us a people's vote to take so we can actually decide. what to do next. a lot of us think that remaining is a much better idea and trying to reform the european union make that better product running high he went brits britstown quite. britain's prime minister might
say the same thing. but a truce of my not quitting has meant staying faithful to the small majority that voted to leave the 2 years ago whatever the cost yet what if that vote was tainted what if instead of being a free and fair reflection of the people's will the referendum was one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated on british democracy in any other election if for a lot of they say level had to be uncovered then we have the legislation that puts aside the results and we have the election again as the deadline for britain's exit from the e.u. draws near there are still too many troubling questions about the vote that breaks it underway about its fairness and its legitimacy about who was behind it who paid
for it and the motives of many of those involved. my name is dr paul lashmar i'm an older and deputy head of journalism at city university of london. breaks it is a watershed moment for the u.k. like everyone else my students will be directly affected and look at the mess they could be one of the most important political events of their lives so i've been looking for answers what i've heard is a story so complex and murky it almost defies belief. thank you it only began in 2030 to placate a wing of his party that had long being antagonistic to the prime minister david cameron was taking the biggest gamble of his career we will give the british people a referendum with a very simple. choice. like
all ballots in the u.k. the referendum was to be overseen by the electoral commission. anyone could take part in the public debate the commission designated 2 official campaign poll g's. one of favorite maybe in the e.u. one for leavin and gave each a fixed spending limit of $7000000.00 pounds. only british registered donors were allowed to contribute to those campaigns now they go on. david cameron became the public face of the pro e.u. campaign better off we are safer in a reformed european union vote leave was fronted by the p.m.'s cabinet colleagues boris johnson and michael gove i think we should take the chance now as a country to take back control the probe breaks its side have the backing of another unofficial campaign leave. its most prominent figure was nigel farrar of the u.k. independence party but cameron's plan backfired because all the odds the u.k.
opted for the exit the u.k. has voted to leave the european union. you know history was in the right. the shock on the remains side was profound early hopes of an easy victory dashed how had it gone so horribly wrong. as the post-mortems got underway attention began focusing on the role played by social media a powerful tool for sway in public opinion to find out more i went to see one of my university colleagues would be looking at a bracks of debate for a very long time dr marco bastos is a specialist in communications of this is what we call a network graph or a plot if he showed me a graph of twitter activity during the referendum strange patterns emerge we notice
a drop in the number of users that we were monitoring it was a significant drop i hadn't seen anything that big up to the point and they turned out that. he had very much to very much sort of like features thoughts of computer generated accounts program to automatically push messages online. what's happening here is that this box is we tweeting a range of real world users this is a single message in all likelihood there was we tweeted several times by this very same bot marco explained that while bots were used by the remaining campaign it was the leave side that made the most of them there were more bots for leave out of the campaign for sure. the figure was of quite clear some of my colleagues have looked into similar data and they have come to the conclusion that these accounts war at least a portion of them were operated by that research agency in russia based in some
petersburg the internet research agency for. is a troll for an organization created expressly to sow discord in this information on the web it was identified by american intelligence as having played a key role in manipulating the 26th election of president donald trump the no one year to the time it now seems that they are also played a role in bricks it. on the death of a friend they found a marked change in behavior say accounts that had been intimate tweeting brax it suddenly started to. edinburgh university research dr clearly well and has examined millions of tweets that were posted prior to the referendum many of them it turns out from the same suspect internet research agency accounts the tweets often at the same format which was that hash tag many u.r.l. and they were using that to keep marriage trending topic so that people saw mation
and that they were trying to access that's. what we have here is trolls so it's human people writing tweet what they flicked was being. the true scale of the russian twitter activity on brakes it only came to light by accident because the company passed the data to us congressional investigation into the trump election that probe another key social media player facebook was already playing a starring role in this year's i covered what is facebook doing to prevent foreign actors from interfering in u.s. elections one of my greatest regrets in running the company is that we were slow in identifying the russian information operations in 2016 and that was a big mistake and it was my mistake and i'm sorry what no one yet fully understands is the role that facebook may have also played in bricks if the company says it has
found almost no evidence of russian interference and repeated that claim in a statement to this program but research was skeptical of facebook is basically a black box so we don't really know what's going on inside facebook. and that's not just facebook that's the instagram what and a number of other platforms operated by. the fact that doubts persist is jus in part to the company's connection to another murky affair. in early 20 the guardian newspaper revealed that 87000000 personal facebook accounts had been illegally harvested by a u.k. based strategic communications business called cambridge analytical it worked with the trump presidential campaign and had ties to leave the. an offshoot of a larger company called s c l which had an alleged background in military dissin from ation cambridge analytic as promised was that it could target people with messages to modify their vote in choices so for
a highly erratic and conscientious audience you're going to need a message that is rational and fear based or emotionally based the cambridge analytical scandal would eventually wind almost $120000000000.00 off of facebook's market value and raise serious questions about the vulnerability of western democracies to manipulation. to find out more i went to meet the journalist behind the guardian's cambridge relative to screw her account walter told me how she 1st began to pull the threads together it started when in order to confirm the data company's links that leave you you she contacted the campaign group spokesman and you went more andy right back and he said happy to clarify came originally she did do work for us but we never paid them they were happy to do it for free and. there's definitely something interesting here because this looks like
a donation to me and donations need to be declared. champion for art in front of the golden left and he's the person who took that photo. and in the face of the more he's in one as well the bad boys it breaks it and breaks it he said it was like a petri dish for the charm campaign. you know it was like a test case carol's revelations led to the biggest data protection investigation ever held on both sides of the atlantic we started a conversation with mr zuckerberg he was gentle that i can start to identify mental vulnerabilities in voters and work to exploit them by targeting information designed to activate some of the worst characteristics in people chris wiley a former director of cambridge analytic turned whistleblower gave evidence to the u.s. senate and a british parliamentary committee that began taking an interest in the brakes at referendum and fake news the definition of
a conversion so we're going to say that i had to get these institutions sheeted you could send the aca the referendum might have been different i think it is completely reasonable to say that there could be a difference in a raffle and. you know had there not been in my view. there needs to be a deeper investigation of the of fake accounts and a group of facebook groups being used to propagate information conservative m.p. damian collins is the chairman of the british parliamentary committee which had evidence from facebook we feel that we should hear from mark zuckerberg because he buys an image he's the person who decides what happens at facebook there are still big concerns are faced with not enough to investigate the role of fake accounts they've not been transparent on the issue of data breaches and user data and they got in the hands of people who shouldn't have it. fake accounts russian trolls data mining complicated stuff and none of it doing much to quell my fears.
