Crowdfunding Carole

The Steeple Times urges readers to support the crowdfunding campaign to help the courageous journalist Carole Cadwalladr see off the nasty piece of work that is Arron Banks

This morning, Nigel Farage – after his Brexit Party’s rather pathetic performance in Brecon & Radnorshire on Thursday – was featured in an article in the Daily Mail about him attending a polo game in Montenegro.

 

Crowdfunding Carole – Support Carole Cadwalladr vs. Arron Banks –The Steeple Times urges readers to support the crowdfunding campaign to help the courageous journalist Carole Cadwalladr see off the nasty piece of work that is Arron Banks. Also featured Nigel Farage, Georgia Toffolo and George Cottrell.

Indicative of the fact that Farage ‘hangs out’ with people most definitely lowbrow, the Brexit Party leader was snapped quaffing champagne alongside the convicted criminal George Cottrell and the dimwit Made in Chelsea ‘star’ Georgia Toffolo. Farage’s choice of company is indeed is own affair, but that he also continues his involvement with Arron Banks – a most curious individual and one currently under investigation by the National Crime Agency – is far more worrying.

 

Co-founder of Leave.EU Banks, a chippy and plainly litigious prat of a man, is currently also suing the award winning investigative journalist Carole Cadwalladr for defamation in an attempt to silence her exposing alleged links between the funding of Vote Leave, Donald Trump’s election and Russia.

 

In response, Cadwalladr has now set up a Go Fund Me page and on it she announces:

 

Please support my investigation into data, disinformation and democracy.

 

In November 2016, I began reporting on dark money, data and disinformation for a series of articles that have appeared in the Observer, Guardian & New York Times. It’s been a long and difficult road, but last year, our reporting on Cambridge Analytica kicked off a global scandal, Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg was dragged before Congress and multiple legal investigations are still ongoing. And it was just one part of our still on-going investigation into a skein of links between Brexit, Trump and Russia.

  

Now though that investigation is being threatened. A businessman who funded Nigel Farage’s Leave.EU campaign – Arron Banks – and who is under investigation by the National Crime Agency, the British equivalent of the FBI, has filed formal proceedings against me.  The result is that I will be tied up in litigation for months in a move that press freedom organisations have called an “abuse of law” to “silence a journalist” .

 

These tactics cannot win.  We desperately need more reporting on this vital subject not less.

 

What I need now is more resources to build a team to pursue the investigation with me, to amplify the story and to continue the fight back for democracy. Every penny will be spent supporting journalism that is more necessary than ever.

 

Please join me if you can help me to continue to pursue the truth.

 

In just nine days nearly £114,151 of a £50,000 goal has been raised with donations received from over 4,278 people as of 10:45am this morning. We urge our readers to add to this and help Cadwalladr continue her excellent work.
