"Nigel Farage is facing an investigation by the EU after allegedly failing to declare a £450,000 payment from Leave EU founder Arron Banks.

"Earlier this week it was claimed the Brexit Party leader was bought a chauffeur-driven car, and had his rent and bills on a £4.4m Chelsea home paid for by Mr Banks."

Full report at the Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7046155/Nigel-Farage-faces-EU-investigation-not-declaring-450-000-Arron-Banks.html

At the Independent: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/nigel-farage-arron-banks-eu-authorities-investigation-gifts-tycoon-a8918946.html?

"The leader of the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, today denied receiving £450,000 from Arron Banks in the year after the referendum to finance his political lifestyle, following revelations broadcast in last night’s Channel 4 News.

"Evidence seen by this programme suggests that Arron Banks, through his companies, financed Mr Farage to the tune of just under half a million pounds."

You might think that if Lib Dem MEP Catherine Bearder is worried about wrong doings in Brussels she would start at the top.

For example Juncker has quite a record of dodgy dealings and rule breaking that go back years. Yet none of it has interfered with him progressing to eu president, instead of receiving fines or being fired. -

 

“Leaked documents show that hundreds of companies avoided tax by channelling money through Luxembourg while Jean-Claude Juncker was prime minister.” -

EU watchdog finds Juncker broke rules to promote political ally. -

His minders aren't doing too well at their jobs...

"Nigel Farage has been hit with a milkshake in Newcastle city centre, after a spate of similar incidents against far-right candidates in the European elections campaign.

"The Brexit party leader appeared to be furious after the incident and was heard to mutter “it’s a complete failure, you could have spotted that a mile” as his security team led him away."

At the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/may/20/nigel-farage-doused-with-milkshake-in-newcastle

At the Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7049597/Nigel-Farage-pelted-MILKSHAKE-European-election-tour.html

You could spot it a mile away but it still hit him.  lol

Should be made to pay the dry cleaning bill.

instead of throwing a milkshake, entering into a debate with Nigel would have been better, but hey, the thrower didn't look to clever.

What a waste of a banana and salted caramel milkshake. Farage should have laughed it off and asked for a straw. Still he was cool and collected under the circumstances.

well today bet365 are giving odds of 1/80..... on the Brexit Party getting the most seats in the UK EU elections !!
that's pretty much a dead cert...

https://www.bet365.com/?&cb=10326510842#/AC/B5/C20642645/D1/E41412474/F2/

voting for the Brexit Party is teaching the MSM a lesson as well as the two main parties...
can't wait to vote for them on Thursday...

What is it with this milkshake meme that nutty Remainers have taken to throwing at prominent brexiteers? I suppose it's something to do with instagram or whatever. anyway, the one this nutcase threw cost £5.25 didn't it?! Insanity.

So...the racist left winger who threw a milk-shake at Nigel Farage has been arrested and charged on two counts. The Electoral Commission has completed their raid on The Brexit Party and ... concluded that there was absolutely NO IMPROPRIETY in their accounts!

Gordon Brown's insistence on this course of action is nothing more than a naked attempt to smear The Brexit Party and Nigel Farage. before the EU Elections and its backfired Gordon!  Probably worth at least a couple of hundred thousand extra votes for the Brexit Party.

The Westminster elite must be trembling now...

...of course the EU Commission is also trying to smear Nigel Farage...he must be doing something right. BBC are covering both stories (no surprise there) and have failed to mention that the Electoral Commission has cleared the Brexit Party of any wrongdoing. Outrageous!!

He's been charged with assault and criminal damage. 

Take your faux victimhood somewhere else.

About B00dy time he's had stuff thrown him and faced abuse from the 'great unwashed' for years.

You're mistaking me for someone who gives a 5hit about your opinion.
