Three further names have been added to the popular and provocative Bad Boys of Brexit website, which details the ‘unholy alliance’ behind the Leave campaign.
The latest ‘Bad Boys’ to be profiled are Raheem Kassam, editor-in-chief of Breitbart News London and a former chief advisor to UKIP leader Nigel Farage; Lord Guthrie, the former head of the British Army and now a senior advisor to Arcanum Global, a private intelligence, defence and security firm; and multimillionaire city asset manager, Jeremy Hosking.
Commenting, Molly said:
“Between them, these three Bad Boys of Brexit have pedded fake news, pushed extremist viewponts and spent millions manipulating democracy – more than enough to earn a place on my website. They join 21 others already profiled, who together make up an unholy alliance of far-right ideologues, climate change deniers, tax-dodging foreign billionaires and specialists in voter manipulation who were behind the Leave campaign”.
The naming of three additional ‘Brexit Bad Boys’ comes shortly after the Electoral Commission found Leave.EU guilty of flouting electoral law and as confidence in the government’s Brexit plans continues to ebb away. Molly continued:
“As the sinister forces behind the Leave campaign are exposed people are losing faith in Brexit and the government’s reckless plans. As Brexit reality replaces Brexiteer fantasy, people are seeing how leaving the EU will impact on jobs, our food, farming and environmental standards, on public services – particularly on health and social care – and on workers’ rights.”
“The more we learn about the motivations of those who drove Brexit the less it seems like a democratic process and the more it looks like a soft coup. A People’s Vote on the final deal will hand power back to the people. They have a right to decide whether what they were promised is being delivered or whether we are better off remaining in the EU”.
