Message from Elections Committee:
"We, as Elections Committee, are aware of the false branding and malicious activity online, and Elections Committee find this behaviour unacceptable.  Although we have found on this occasion it does not put the referendum into disrepute, in future elections and referenda, action could be taken should this occur again."
