Hacked Off Say Thanks to Secret Donors

You have to hand it to Brian Cathcart. Hacked Off’s self-styled nutty professor has summed up their secret donor dilemma in a typically self-important post this lunchtime:

“We do not regret accepting money to fund our activities from some people who did not want their donations made public. We understand and respect their desire to avoid the kind of hostile treatment that has been dished out to people who openly criticise the press, and we are grateful to them for their generosity. We are grateful too, to the very many generous people who have given money openly. We have been open from the outset about our funding.”

In other words thank you to the Billionaire Russian oligarchs, Gatsby-like Labour Lords and world-famous aristocrats that have donated. Despite Cathcart’s claim that they “have been open from the outset about our funding”, you only know their names thanks to Guido…

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
