Concealed in a stash of police files in South Africa, hidden documents expose a series of remarkable assertions. A story of diamonds, guns and Russian money, and, if the allegations are to be believed, they could cast some light on how British campaigners fought for the Brexit referendum in 2016.
Centre to the Leave.EU campaign was Arron Banks, a millionaire businessman who tapped millions of pounds into the movement, but now, an investigation has revealed startling allegations about Arron Banks’ business ventures, and where he is alleged to have got his Brexit cash from.
Many of the claims arise from his former business associate, Chris Kimber. The pair fell out, and are now battling a painful legal action, and as a consequence of this controversy, a wealth of extraordinary documents has come to light.
They include the allegations that Arron Banks solicited financial help from Russia, specifically from the country’s state diamond company, Alrosa. Another allegation relates to the claims of dealing in illegal diamonds, but Arron Banks has been made to dismiss the accusations that he bribed an African politician to get a licence to prospect for diamonds.
Strangely, the documents include the claim the business magnate planned to provide “mercenary support” – “if need be,” in order to keep this same politician in power, but Arron Banks strenuously denies the allegations.
It’s essential that we now find out who bank-rolled Brexit through Arron Banks, and this must be read by everyone in the United Kingdom who now knows that they were shafted by a guy who wanted to make money without giving a stuff about the UK people so long as he got his own way.
He’s just another dishonest businessman, like thousands of others. Study any them and you’ll find dodgy dealings, but there’s no real proof of any ties with the Russian government or assumed connections to the Leave campaign.
In brief, Arron Banks bought a dog of mine employed people for nothing, greased through licences, Branson fashion, but what has this got to do with Brexit? Well, he gave millions to the Leave campaign, so that’s what it’s got to do with Brexit.
But to be frank, most people aren’t interested in what money went where because they’d sooner stare at a bare wall for a few days, even though Brexit’s biggest bankroller faced a National Crime Agency inquiry over alleged ties with Russia throughout the Brexit campaign.
But there’s no smoke without fire, and articles broadcasting it, and how the bad boys of Brexit formed links with Russia and the Trump campaign is always deserving of a read, and if he is found to have done anything dodgy, then he should be penalised to the full scope of the law, and then some more.
Arron Banks is now the centre of a criminal inquiry which could unfold into a serious political disgrace. One which involves the unlawful undermining of the UK government as well as the EU by agents of the state which is antagonistic to both.
Leave.EU was established by Arron Banks in 2015, and he stated it would campaign for Brexit outside the Westminster Bubble, but how far outside the SW1 postcode of the Leave.EU donations were originally sourced, and Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin and his oligarch associates loom large in this tale, and now it’s the business of the National Crime Agency, but still, Arron Banks denies any wrongdoing.
