The main Brexit campaign group isn’t just beset by infighting, its own supporters are leaving too.
Yesterday, one of its main supporters accused campaign director Dominic Cummings of creating “ill feeling” among staff.
In an email to Cummings and former TPA director Matthew Elliott, deputy chairman John Mills wrote:
What on earth are you doing, generating more and more ill feeling like this entirely unnecessarily? I thought you had promised to stop doing this sort of thing. Don’t you realise that this kind of behaviour puts more and more damaging and unnecessary strain on everyone?
It gets worse today. Now, Vote Leave’s cross-party support is also melting away.

Kate Hoey MP denied reports that she has quit the group but she is still clearly unhappy
Press stories about me having Left Labour Leave are nonsense.I will not be supporting Vote Leave for designation by the Electoral Commission

The ‘Vote Remain’ group probably can’t believe their luck.
