Does Nigel Farage care about his new party’s supporters or is there a catch?

Did you know?

You cannot become a member of The Brexit Party; you can become a ‘registered supporter’, but not a member.

Yes, it’s a political party, but what you may not know is that it is also a private company, The Brexit Party Limited.

The Brexit Party is a company limited by shares, which means that the directors can take any profit out of the company.

Did you know?

By the way, the other (recently appointed) director is Richard Tice, a multi-millionaire property developer, vulture capitalist and co-founder of Leave.EU, CEO of a £500m asset management group.

Men of the people, eh?

Nigel Farage is answerable to nobody, and that includes his party’s supporters.

Who made Nigel Farage leader of The Brexit Party? He did.

Remember, it hasn’t got any ‘members’, just ‘supporters’ – there is no-one to question him and he isn’t accountable to anybody. Would you support a party where just one person made all the decisions?

Nigel Farage’s Moneymaker European Tour is nothing but a private business and all his supporters are doing is putting money directly into his pocket. Their choice.

But does he actually care about them?🔷

Last week, Channel 4 News revealed how millionaire Nigel Farage’s wealthy friend Arron Banks spent approximately £450,000 to fund the Brexit Party leader’s lavish lifestyle in 2016. Watch the investigation now:
