Inquiry to examine extremist party’s use of Lee Rigby slogan

The Guardian:

An independent investigation is to examine the Electoral Commission’s decision to allow an extremist party to use a slogan featuring murdered soldier Lee Rigby.

The watchdog has apologised for allowing Britain First to use the words “Remember Lee Rigby” on voting slips for next month’s European elections.

Jenny Watson, chair of the commission, said on Sunday that “an immediate and full independent investigation” will follow to prevent it from happening again.

Another regulator asleep at the wheel.
