Dear Prime Minister                                                                                18th February 2016

Britain Stronger in Europe is misleading the people

The country is in the middle of a major decision, whether to remain in the European Union or leave. The key word is European Union, not Europe. I am sure that the present name of the group that is campaigning to stay in The European Union needs to change. Britain is already in Europe. The name of the campaign organisation is misleading and would never have been accepted by the Electoral Commission for the actual voting slip.  A copy of my email is given below:

Dear Sir

I am concerned that the organisation Britain Stronger in Europe which represents the campaign to stay in the European Union is misleading the public. The organisation should have called itself Britain Stronger in the European Union. This organisation is intending to be selected by the Electoral Commission as the designated Lead Campaign for remaining in the European Union. Britain cannot leave Europe as it is already in Europe. This complaint is not about the content of any election material but the name of the group.

If the Electoral Commission intends to accept the organisation currently named Britain Stronger in Europe without an amended name it will be misleading the British public.

I trust that my complaint will be considered very carefully.

Yours sincerely          A. Citizen

Dear Citizen,

Thank you for your email.

We are responsible for regulating referendum campaign funding and spending, as well as registering campaigners in the referendum. We do not regulate the content or messages of referendum campaigns.

The European Referendum Act introduced provisions that require us to reach an opinion on whether the proposed names of certain types of campaigners are obscene or offensive. If we decide that it is, we must refuse the application. There are no equivalent provisions that give us powers to refuse an application to register on the basis that the campaigner’s name might be considered misleading.  Further information on our roles and responsibilities can be found here.

You can find more information about campaigning and registering as a campaigner at the EU Referendum in our guidance here.

If we can be of any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us on, or by phone on 0333 103 1928.

Best wishes,


James Douglas      Guidance Advisor

Under the circumstances I think that Britain  Stronger in Europe should amend its name as people could be mislead.

 It should be Britain Stronger in European Union.
