But the law dates from 20 years ago when Brown was Chancellor of the Exchequer; he didn't seem to think there was a problem during his years in power.  The law is simply inappropriate now due to the changes in social media, crowdfunding and electronic payments.

Looks like Brown has been wheeled out to spread suspicion.

Political parties have always been inventive on how they acquire funds and how they spend them.


Problem for Farage is his brexit party would have very little start up funds, and very little time to accumulate a war chest, election law is there to make elections more fairer, or supposed to anyway, by:

  • Preventing parties and candidates spending money the do not have.
  • Capping the amount of money they spend on a campaigns.
  • Controlling where the money comes from.

Surprised his security didn't give the thrower a good kicking.

As for the Electoral Comission, no need to visit his offices as everyone has to submit funding accounts after the election. Sounds like the big boys are really running scared.

They are probably visiting his office to check that in receiving donations by bank transfer and card payments he has safeguards in place to ensure that the donations come via British banks, and people do not make multiple donations. 


That will not show up on his parties submitted election returns.
