Referendum spending

There is an interesting story here about Priti Patel calling for the electoral commission  to investigate the referendum spending of the remain side during the 2016 referendum https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/may/27/priti-patel-calls-investigation-remain-campaign-spending-brexit

I find this really amusing. Presumably, in her mind, if the commission finds that the remain campaign broke the spending rules that will cancel out any law breaking on the leave side. In fact, as far as I can see, all it will do is double the reason why the referendum is broken and the result need to be validated with a referendum on the final deal.
