The UK Electoral Commission is convinced: There is evidence that big parts of the funding of the pro-Brexit referendum campaign comes from dubious sources.

The focus is on British businessman Arron Banks, a string-puller and close friend of former Ukip leader Nigel Farage. Almost 9 million pounds in donations are said to have originated from his offshore accounts.

The "ZDFzoom" documentation looks at the question: "Was the Brexit referendum also a conspiracy to test the limits of democracy?" The research suggests that voters were to be influenced by obscured means and influenced as effectively as possible. "ZDFzoom" author Dirk Laabs not only keeps track of the cash flow, but also talks to insiders from the campaign and confronts her head, the former head of UKIP, Nigel Farage. In an interview with ZDF, Farage also talks about the influence American consultants had on the campaign. Steve Bannon, former Advisor to US President Trump, was one of the key advisers in the game.

Specifically, it is about millions of loans, which the Pro Brexit campaign is said to have received from Banks. The money may not come from Banks himself, but from companies based on the Isle of Man and Gibraltar, who, by doing so, would have interfered in the election campaign. Meanwhile, the National Crime Agency investigates. It is tasked to reveal the hitherto veiled campaign funding.

Nigel Farage, in an interview with "ZDFzoom" author Dirk Laabs, speaks candidly of how close the camps have worked and how important Trump's former advisor Steve Bannon was to Britain's campaign: "Previously, I had no allies in the United States Media, no voice, then Steve helped us. If you suddenly have multiple voices on your side, it all changes." Farage says he and Steve Bannon have understood that "sometimes people want 'a wrecking ball' that destroys the old system of 'pompous politicians'." A whistleblower who has worked for the Leave campaign is convinced, "The various Brexit campaigns broke the law, relying on a whole network of companies to spend more money, without which the EU referendum would have ended differently."

"ZDFzoom" author Dirk Laabs explores the following questions in this documentation: Which questionable methods were used to convince the majority of the British for Brexit? Which interests and profiteers are behind it? Also, Laabs asks stakeholders in Brussels, what measures should be taken with regards to the European elections, and what possibly could be done, to make future digital campaigning more controllable or regulated.

Just look at these two headlines from @RVAwonk and @peterjukes. How can we doubt now that with Mercer and Putin input there is not a global conspiracy to target minorities from Russian Oligarchs and American Billionaires

Pro-Brexit Leave.EU group accused of faking videos and forging images of migrants committing crimes
Campaign group led by former Ukip donor Arron Banks accused of 'fake news' over viral video

12 hours ago
Pro-Brexit campaign group Leave.EU has been accused of faking a viral video of illegal "migrants" and forging images purporting to show immigrants committing violent crimes.

The group, which is led by businessman and former Ukip donor Arron Banks, staged a video that it claimed showed how easy it was for migrants to cross to Britain illegally, according to Channel 4 News.

The video was released in the weeks before the 2016 EU referendum and was watched hundreds of thousands of times. But Channel 4 said satellite data showed that the boat had never left UK waters, and footage appearing to show the "migrants" entering the country was filmed before they left UK shores.

It also reported that Leave.EU had staged images that the group said showed a migrant attacking a young woman in Tottenham, north London.

The photos appearing to show the violent attack were reportedly sent by an associate of Mr Banks to Andy Wigmore, Leave.EU's head of communications.

Channel 4 said leaked emails showed Mr Wigmore had then forwarded them to the group's media team with the message: "Migrants beating up girl in Tottenham Saturday...Can we get this ready to go as a press release."

It is unclear why the photos were seemingly never released.

In response, Mr Banks told Channel 4: “Leave.EU is the biggest viral political campaign in the UK, with 3.7 million engagements last week on Facebook alone, dwarfing political parties and other groups.

“Channel 4 is packed with ex-Guardian journalists and left wing activists, who create fake news for a living!

“The campaign must be doing something right to annoy all the right people consistently.”

Leave.EU claims to show how easy it is for migrants to sneak into Britain in 'faked' video
But Labour MP Jo Stevens, a member of the House of Commons culture, media and sport committee, said: “The video of the boat is very obviously fake and put together in a fake way. The photographs are a little bit more difficult to spot that, but clearly fake news with a deliberate intention of stoking hatred and anti-immigrant feeling and rhetoric.”

Leave.EU has previously been hit with hefty fines by the Electoral Commission in relation to activities during the EU referendum campaign.

The group was fined £70,000 last year for breaking election laws and in March was hit with a further £60,000 punishment for data breaches.

Revealed: Brexit group covered up its targeting of right-wing extremists


Arron Banks repeatedly lied to cover-up his Brexit campaign’s effort to attract far-right extremists.

Leave.EU paid for Facebook adverts targeted at supporters of the National Front, the BNP, Britain First and the EDL.

But when the BBC asked for a response to a story they planned to run, Mr Banks sent a barrage of emails in an attempt to get the story dropped.

Leaked emails, seen by Channel 4 News, show Mr Banks insisted the BBC’s accusation were “wholly wrong” – despite his own staff telling him the story was true.

One Leave.EU employee told him: “Those are our ads, we have targeted those groups since the beginning of the campaign as they gain most traction.”

Another Leave.EU staffer proposed telling the BBC: “We pay for target ads for all political parties, not just right wing.”

But Mr Banks replied: “Not the right answer.”

Instead, Mr Banks told the BBC: “It’s wholly wrong to say we have targeted extreme right parties… your report needs to reflect this or it will be biased and if we have to we will take whatever legal action we need.”

Andy Wigmore, Leave.EU’s Head of Communications, even appealed to the head of BBC Westminster, Robbie Gibb, in a further attempt to prevent the story from being run.

Mr Gibb is now Theresa May’s head of communications.

In a series of late night emails to Mr Gibb, Mr Banks described the story as a “smear campaign” and threatened to make a formal complaint.

Afterwards, Mr Banks emailed another Leave.EU director, saying: “I don’t think they will Run it after all that lot . You will have a busy week next week since Robbie will react by giving us massive exposure.”

The BBC dropped its investigation. They told us this was because they were unable to establish that Leave.EU had targeted far right groups deliberately.

A version of this story about Leave.EU targeting the far right was eventually reported by the Sunday Times.

In his book about the referendum campaign, Arron Banks recounted the incident, claiming: “Robbie Gibb is being quite helpful and says he’s trying to hose it down.”

The former Chairman of the BBC Trust, Lord Patten, told us: “These are serious allegations and that the BBC’s Director General should investigate why the story was dropped”.

The BBC told us our story is “untrue” and that they had resisted pressure from Arron Banks.

Instead, the broadcaster said it dropped the story because their reporter was unable to establish that Leave.EU had targeted far right groups deliberately.

The BBC said Mr Gibb was not the editor involved with the story and had no say in the decision not to run it.

And it said it has seen no evidence to substantiate claims their editorial standards were compromised in any way.

Robbie Gibb told Channel 4 News: “These allegations are ridiculous and without merit. I remain proud of my contribution to the BBC’s impartial coverage of the 2016 EU referendum campaign.”

When asked for a response to this story, Leave.EU questioned our methods and journalistic integrity – and also threatened to post one of our journalist’s personal phone number on social media.

Following Channel 4’s revelations that Nigel Farage’s Leave EU campaign faked inflammatory photos of sexual attacks and staged videos about migrants, Byline Times has evidence of more racist propaganda sourced from the Kremlin.
Peter Jukes17 April 2019


As uncovered last year, leaked emails from Andy Wigmore, Arron Banks and Leave EU officials revealed numerous clandestine meetings with the Russian Embassy in London in the run up the EU referendum. Among these emails is also an exchange about “weaponising migrants”.

In the spring of 2016, as the Syrian refugee diaspora was reaching its crisis, and just as the referendum was entering its final days, the Supreme Allied Commander Europe and the head of the US European Command NATO accused Russia of intervening in Syria to deliberately displace populations that were seeking asylum in Greece and Macedonia.

Evidence from Leave EU websites shows that they were relying heavily on racist Russian misinformation throughout their campaign.

“Together, Russia and the Assad regime are deliberately weaponising migration in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve,” General
Philip Breedlove said. His condemnation was followed up by other European leaders, including the then foreign secretary Philip Hammond who said “the only country who would like us to leave the EU is Russia.”


File photo dated 16/06/16 of Ukip leader Nigel Farage launching a new Ukip EU referendum poster campaign featuring migrants queuing to get into the EU under the slogan Breaking Point. A visually similar anti-Brexit billboard featuring Brexit supporters has been unveiled in Westminster today.
When the Russian Embassy responded to Hammond’s accusation of intervening in the Brexit debate, the Leave EU team leapt in to defend Putin’s stance. Arron Banks asked for the following press release to be composed:

“We’ve heard a lot about Russia weaponising migrants in recent days but the bigger problem has been Cameron weaponising Russia in the EU referendum”, said Leave.EU cofounder Arron Banks. “Russia has been built up into this great, looming threat which only the EU can save us from. It’s ridiculous- what has it’s attempt to expand Ukraine at Russia’s expense achieved besides an ugly civil war? What has its trade war against Russia achieved besides ruining British dairy farms?’

The Leave EU team then discussed sending a letter of support to Ambassador Yakovenko and debated whether it was “too overtly Russophile”. But evidence from Leave EU websites shows that they were relying heavily on racist Russian misinformation throughout their campaign.

Overtly racist Pro-Putin Propaganda

In 2014, Nigel Farage told Alistair Cambell in GQ Magazine that Vladimir Putin was the statesman he most admired: “The way he played the whole Syria thing. Brilliant.” He had met Ambassador Yakovenko the year before and started a series of almost monthly appearances on RT.

“Together, Russia and the Assad regime are deliberately weaponising migration in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve,”

General Philip Breedlove
By the time of the EU referendum, Russian news agencies like RT and Sputnik were clearly pushing a pro-Brexit agenda, particularly focusing on (mainly false) allegations of rape and criminality by asylum seekers and migrants.

One of Leave EU’s most popular videos was mainly sourced from Russian propaganda and deliberately portrayed foreign migrants as sexual predators.


Four weeks before the referendum vote in June 2016, Leave EU created a video videos called ‘Worrying Scenes in Europe’ mainly based on clips from RT.

One disturbing sequence in the video is all Leave EU’s creation. It apparently shows sexual assault by dozens of men (alleged to be refugees). But the clip is actually of an assault that took place in Tahrir Square in Egypt in 2013.


There’s little doubt Leave EU knew the real source and deliberately doctored the contents to make them ‘disturbing scenes from Europe’ rather than Egypt. The original footage from Lively has been pixelated and cropped the original video to disguise the real location.


As Britain faces possible European Elections at the end of May, Farage’s new Brexit party is leading in the latest EU election polls.

The Leave EU/RT video has been viewed 1.4 million times and is still available on its Facebook page which is now devoted to promoting Farage’s Brexit party.

Seems time is running out for Theresa....

May 'could announce departure date on Friday' – as it happened

updated 7h ago 09:57 Late night summary

Andrea Leadsom, former leader of the House of Commons, resigned from government today. In a letter to Theresa May, she said “I no longer believe that our approach will deliver on the referendum result”. Outlining four main reasons for her decision to quit, Leadsom added how she no longer “believes that we will be a truly sovereign United Kingdom through the deal that is now proposed.” Leadsom later told reporters saying she disagreed with the Withdrawal Agreement Bill’s new elements.

Theresa May responded with a letter. May said she was “sorry” to lose someone of her “passion, drive and sincerity”, but disagreed with her comments about the Governments Brexit approach. May wrote: “I do not agree with you that the deal which we have negotiated with the European Union means that the United Kingdom will not become a sovereign country.”

A source in the 1992 Committee of Conservative backbenchers said the executive had voted tonight on whether to allow a new confidence vote that could oust Theresa May from premiership. The votes are now sealed in an envelope, and would only be opened if May fails to resign by 10 June.

There was speculation that May could announce her resignation as early as this Friday 24 May when she will meet Sir Graham Brady, chair of the backbench 1922 Committee, BBC reports.

It's been running out for months... But I guess now is the beginning of the end. Or maybe just the end of the beginning?

May's conduct regarding the Brexit has been shocking in its disdain for democracy, even for these amoral bastards. Britain has not had a functioning government for months. I believe one factor in this is the ruling class's contempt for Corbyn and absolute fear of a Corbyn government. Rightwing circles in both Labour and Tories are united in their desire to corrode Corbyn's support by any means necessary, and if it takes May to shred the credibility of the UK political process, so be it.

Unfortunately Corbyn has recently come off as weak and vacillating, so the bastards may, once again, win the long game. :mad2 \<]

Finally....and welcome Boris...

UK PM Theresa May announces resignation, will quit on June 7

Published time: 24 May, 2019 09:07

Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed her resignation in a solemn address given outside her former residence at No. 10 Downing st Friday in a long-awaited move.

The process for electing a new leader should begin next week May said, after confirming that she had informed the Queen of her decision to step down while expressing regret that she had failed to secure a Brexit deal.

“I will resign as leader of the Conservative and Unionist party on Friday, 7 June so that a successor can be chosen,” May said in front of the steps of 10 Downing Street.

May will continue to serve as the British leader until the process of electing a new leader is completed.

“The second female Prime Minister but certainly not the last,” May concluded her remarks, with her voice wavering.

“I do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love,” May ended, sounding almost tearful as she sharply turned away from the podium.

Reports circulated throughout the week that the Prime Minister would resign Friday, after repeated failures to secure a Brexit deal that would pass through the British Parliament while simultaneously appeasing exasperated EU negotiators in Brussels.

Yep. The British political system is utterly and fundamentally fucked. There will be no more going back to normal after this process, whatever happens.

Why David Cameron is not generally reviled and excoriated about this daily and publicly escapes me.

Because he came from nowhere - and returned there, swiftly. I think most people have trouble mentally recalling him, full stop. Posh, plastic skin and total insincerity are my recollections.

I'm not sure UK politics are fucked - it's more a case of 'business as usual', but with less facade. Maybe they'll just appoint a new PM without elections at all, from now on. What's to stop them? :fawked:

Does it really matter who is prime minister? People voted for the Tories and they're still the ones driving the car off the cliff. May just decided to bail out and let someone else drive the last mile.
