Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Something far more sinister slipped quietly under the wire yesterday when a court ruled that it wasn't illegal for referenda such as this to be funded by foreign money, so letting one of the Brexiteer backers off the hook

A typical pack of lies and distortions by little jimmy. I really cannot understand why he is continually allowed to post garbage.

THE REALITY

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has said it has found 'no evidence that any criminal offences have been committed' after the Electoral Commission referred allegations against Leave.EU and businessman Arron Banks.

Britain's FBI accepted a referral from the Electoral Commission of a number of alleged offences against Leave.EU, its chief executive Elizabeth Bilney, businessman Arron Banks and a company called Better for the Country Ltd.

It claimed that Mr Banks was not the true source of £8 million in loans, and that the company through which they were made, the Isle of Man registered Rock Holdings Ltd, should not have been used to make donations because it is registered outside the UK.

But, in a statement the NCA said it had 'found no evidence that any criminal offences have been committed under PPERA or company law by any of the individuals or organisations referred to it by the Electoral Commission.

'It will therefore take no further action against Mr Banks, Ms Bilney, Better for the Country Ltd or Leave.EU in respect of this specific matter'.   

Banks, nicknamed the 'Bad boy of Brexit', has been dogged by claims he was backed by the Kremlin to help bring about the UK's divorce from the EU - but he has repeatedly branded it 'b*****s'.
