Analysing Borwick

The Cambridge Analytica connection you’ve most likely never heard of; meet The Hon. Thomas Borwick, son of ex-Tory MP Lady ‘Call Me Victoria’ Borwick

 

The Hon. Thomas Borwick is a figure in the Cambridge Analytica scandal you’ve probably never heard of.

Bizarrely largely overlooked by the mainstream media, the son of the ousted ex-MP for Kensington Lady ‘Call Me Victoria’ Borwick is an extremely well connected man who keeps himself under the radar on social media. The 31-year old has just 500 followers on Twitter – a surprisingly low number given he has been described as a “computer specialist” and was put in a position of huge power as Vote Leave’s chief technology officer from August 2015 to July 2016.

Educated at the University of Richmond, Virginia from 2006 to 2010, with a period studying law courses at Cambridge briefly during 2008, Borwick subsequently worked in IT for the financial services company Killik & Co in 2012 and simultaneously “developed music technology for interactive lessons.”

 

More interestingly, this youngster’s move into political data profiling came also in 2012 when he founded a company named Kanto Systems with an aim of “bring[ing] UK Campaigning into the 21st century.” Here, Borwick developed a “mobile canvassing app” and came into contact with Cambridge Analytica in order to provide them with “digital services,” according to The Huffington Post. In turn, he sold an app to Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, SCL, and now, in March this year, his firm was brought in by Ireland’s Save The 8th anti-abortion campaign group as part of their efforts “to persuade Irish voters to keep the country’s strict anti-abortion laws.”

 

Hiring Thomas Borwick to create and manage a website is like employing the SAS to run security at a school hop or bringing in Einstein to tot up your shopping bill,” comments journalist Fintan O’Toole in The Irish Times, and in further revelations in the Evening Standard late March, Borwick himself admitted to also having worked with the equally controversial Canadian data firm Aggregate IQ – an operation that earned £3.5 million working for Vote Leave during the 2016 referendum campaign.

 

The public and press need to wake up and smell the coffee. The manipulation of politics in America, Britain, Ireland and elsewhere runs far deeper than even the most avid viewer of the Daily Politics could imagine. Figures like Thomas Borwick may well operate in the backrooms but it is increasingly becoming apparent that with doorstep canvassing all but irrelevant, such people are worryingly our new political powerhouses.

  1. I have encountered Thomas Borwick via the Conservative Party. He is very bright and very dedicated to any cause he gets involved in. He is a modern day Peter Mandelson and a master of spin – but using the Internet rather than Mandelson’s more traditional methods.

  2. Anything that got Brexit WON is bloody f***ing brilliant in my book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tommy Boy should be given an OBE given he’s already headed to get a tittle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need more like him in politics —- too many dullard dumbos!!!!!!!!!!! I’d send him a few tinnies of Castlemaine if I knew his addreesss!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well done boy!!!!!!!!

  3. The stupid fake news journalist who helped get the wonderful aristocrat Viscount St Davids taken from the arms of his loving family strikes again. Steeples should not be interfering in matters that don’t concern him and the peers of the realm and their families do not need to have interference from the likes of you. Stop campaigning against the inevitable and accept that the deserved rule and you remain serfs.

  4. Nothing surprises me about Victoria Borwick and her family anymore. She is probably tinkling on her ivories and hosting cocktail parties and planning her comeback as the next Tory candidate for Kensington. Emma Dent Coad has nothing to fear if that happens.

    • What a dimwitted comment and what a dimwit name…..Xander….I suppose your parents thought it might make your rather pedestrian surname more interesting
