Sad that No10 were 1st to know about Woolaston's change of heart' Her decision to leave rings false - deliberately staged and political— Nadine Dorries (@NadineDorriesMP) June 9, 2016
Pretty sure Sarah Wollaston was always a plant from the Remain side. Makes a lot more sense than any other explanation.— Dale Bassett (@dalebassett) June 8, 2016
2. Glastonbury clashing with the EU referendum. Conservative MPs have of course rejected any idea that it’s a conspiracy the European referendum clashes with Glastonbury festival. But there are 135,000 revellers at the festival, many of those young people who the polls say are more likely to vote remain. And people didn’t respond well to the Electoral Commission saying it wouldn’t be possible for people to vote in person at the event, due to legal framework.
3. THAT government voter registration website crash. The Government’s voter registration site crashed in the final hours before the deadline, due to a massive spike in demand. Well, they said that was the reason…
Senior figures on Leave side think someone deliberately crashed electoral registration site. Say traffic level at 10.15pm implausibly high— James Forsyth (@JGForsyth) June 8, 2016

MPs then demanded extra time for people to register to vote in the EU referendum which only probably added fuel to the conspiracy theory fire. 4. British expats lost their battle in the Supreme Court for the right to vote. Britons living abroad must have been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years and be eligible to vote in the general election to be able to vote in the referendum – which means 700,000 expats won’t be able to vote in EU referendum. That’s a lot of people, especially considering 72% of expats on the Continent who are eligible and plan to vote intend to back In, according to a survey for expats’ network InterNations. People ain’t happy.
@Number10gov UK expats not allowed to vote in the referendum is absurd. This affects us too!— Patricia van Vliet (@Jacqaranda) May 20, 2016
5. Polling cards have been sent to non-EU residents. Unlike some other elections, only British citizens are able to vote in the upcoming referendum. Yet the Government confirmed that thousands of people ineligible to vote in the EU referendum have received ballot papers. MPs have heard how EU nationals and a 17-year-old girl were among those sent postal voting papers despite not being allowed to take part in the poll. Which has obviously left people puzzled.
So the electoral authorities are prepared to extend the registration deadline, but are doing nothing about EU nationals wrongly registered.— Daniel Hannan (@DanHannanMEP) June 8, 2016
6. Then there’s this.
Anyone else notice the new Independence Day is coming out on the same day as the EU referendum? #conspiracy— R Δ Z (@rhafeez123) June 11, 2016
Hmmmm, it is a film about aliens taking over Earth after all… 7. And THIS.
Conspiracy theory: the EU will make sure Romania progress in Euro2016, so UK football fans keep hearing the word 'remain'.— James Harkin (@eggshaped) June 10, 2016
