The National Crime Agency is investigating Arron Banks and his Leave.EU campaign foralleged offences committed at the 2016 EU referendum.

Mr Banks and another senior campaign figure, Liz Bilney, were referred to the agencyby the Electoral Commission.

The watchdog said it suspected money given to the campaign came "from impermissible sources".

Reading between the lines, I think that actually IS what's being suggested. 

If they can poison people in our streets, they're definitely not above sowing division in our politics.

They wouldn't be very good "spies" if they weren't up to something.  I hope our troops-in-armchairs are doing the same, back at them.

Have no doubt they are. 

See, that's honest spying. Poisoning people just isn't cricket, you know :lol:

Why don't all the dirty dealings perpetrated by the Remain campaign not get investigated?

If there was evidence of illegal funding from foreign governments, I'm sure there would be.

Codswallop. It's one rule for the Remainers and another for the Leavers.

It reminds me of the time when the Leave campaign were accused by the Electoral Commission of "overspending" - despite the fact that the Remain camp spent many, many millions more on their campaign than the Leave camp did.

Correct, priti Patel MP, handed a dossier to the electoral commission. 

She said "This goes further than any accusations levelled at Vote Leave about having a ‘common plan’ for campaign activity. This provides demonstrable evidence that Remain campaigns colluded in producing adverts with a ‘common plan’, and in doing so avoided the cost of the project being included in Britain Stronger in Europe’s spending"

Micheal Portillo had it right on "this week"

Why the BBC was right to interview Arron Banks

Elitist Remainers who want Banks off TV are a menace to media freedom.

Imagine how self-important you would need to be to think you had the right to reverse a news organisation’s editorial decisions. I have been watching TV news for decades and never once have I thought to myself, ‘I don’t like what that guest had to say. I am going to write to this broadcaster to insist they never have him on again.’

Others, it seems, do think like this. They’re so convinced that the world ought to revolve around their opinions that they think nothing of trying to cast out from media life anyone who thinks differently to them.

Consider elitist Remainers’ efforts to have Leave.EU funder Arron Banks shunted from The Marr Show on BBC 1 this morning. Not content with trying to strangle democracy by preventing the largest democratic vote in British history from being enacted, now these people want to do over press freedom by heaping pressure on news outlets to change their editorial decisions.

 A good number of remainers are left wing socialists, their already half way down the path of the far left = communist. Where they believe so deeply that their way is the only way for the good of everyone, before you know it they start banning people appearing on TV in the media etc.. Closing down or controlling the media like we see in the communists states of Vietnam, the Russian federation, China, North Korea ect.. A socialist lacks the power of persuasion, and with it debate. So they do their upmost to stifle debate. Look at immigration they where the first ones to shout rascist, xenophobic ect... But like all good socialists they'll always end up on the losing side as their ideas are tested and the money runs out. And amen to that.

That is certainly their M.O. but it raises the question, when and how does a civil society manage to combat such an insidious danger?  When one party in a supposed debate holds the media in their sway, how do dissenters manage to get their message out?  It has become a critical problem in the U.S.  I've said it before and I repeat, if Trump left office TODAY, he still will have caused this media/Progressive cabal to expose themselves for all to see - who are looking.  The problem with allowing Socialism to run its experiment over and over is the cost in productivity, then livelihoods, then LIVES.  The disgusting irony, the rank hypocrisy is that the Left is actually DOING what they falsely accuse the Right of.  When the mind-control media backs them totally, the numbers of people who are educated and concerned about the dangers are so limited by the lack of a platform that they cannot be effective.  It benefits no American or British citizen so who DOES it benefit?

Who does it benefit, its a excellent question, I think it's just human nature, this democray lark is new to the wider world. I think Im right in saying not so long ago even as early as the 1970s only 23% of countries were democracies. Its no wonder we have people and political parties in the bastions of democracy here in the west who still flirt with socialist, authoritarian communist ideals as it was the norm.

What specific regulations do you think Soros' funding breaches? Or is it just that you don't like someone funding a campaign you personally disagree with?

Er..from the article :-

"Under UK law, loans and donations to registered campaigners can only come from permissible sources, which essentially excludes overseas or foreign funding. The law was introduced by the Labour government in 2000 after a series of scandals involving overseas donors accused of trying to influence British laws and elections."  ......Arron Banks - British national.

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/george-soros-brexit-stop-remain-donation-hungarian-american-businessman-best-for-britain-a8200106.html

"Billionaire financier George Soros has donated £400,000 to a pro-Remain campaign group which aims to overthrow Brexit.The investor is one of a trio of individuals linked to Best for Britain, which reportedly intends to launch a countrywide advertising campaign later this month, pushing for a second referendum which could stall the UK’s departure from the EU."   ......George Soros - American national

Get the hypocracy.?

( "a pro-Remain campaign group which aims to overthrow Brexit.

i.e. a pro-Remain campaign group which aims to overthrow a democratic vote)

Well then, if your summation of events is correct, we'll all see it in due course. Like I said, both leave and remain are being investigated.

Why aren’t Cameron and Osborne in the dock for breaking referendum rules?

Another day, another headline about how the official Leave campaigns and billionaire Arron Banks are being investigated and fined by the Electoral Commission and even the police for allegedly breaking the rules during the EU referendum campaign. Remainiac conspiracy-mongers insist this proves the vote to Leave was ‘illegitimate’ and should be ignored.

Strangely, these sticklers for the rulebook seem somewhat quieter about how the Remain campaign, led by Tory prime minister David Cameron and his chancellor George Osborne, broke their own rules on how to behave during a referendum campaign.
