We already know electoral law was broken. Now Aaron Banks is under investigation because https://t.co/pbNTdJCphb stands accused of spending foreign money.
Brexit must be put on hold until we know the extent of these crimes against our democracy.https://t.co/WrJcXng8o7

No right-minded person would think Brexit should continue while the National Crime Agency are investigating Arron Banks.
Thankfully there are no right-minded people in government.

Total shock that a man who funded a racist party which has corroded political discourse and sent Britain into a geopolitical bin is now under criminal investigation

Idea for a new sitcom. A millionaire insurance company owner shares a prison cell with a fashion student.
