Blimey he was in a hurry to get that little speech over and done with ? Why, was he being followed ?

Ellan I think he was trying to be concise. I thought it was made a lot easier to understand than some of the explanations and busted lots of myths.

That’s Femmi isn’t it? Quite a sweetie although pulled out of standing as a candidate for the new party that keeps changing its name winkas he felt manipulated so I gather.

Not quite sure how he is funded too he wouldn’t answer thst. Mind you neither does NF.

What a crew.

The Brexit Party has declared how it is funded, do keep up, Jeremy Hosking gave two donations of £100,000 the rest is made up of nearly 90,000 supporters of the Brexit Party donating £25 each. Not bad for a new party that is only a few weeks old.

Also this is pretty clear:

Femi is crowdfunded. He made a video about it ages ago. When I've more time I'll find it for you.

Strange he was on Talk radio breakfast show 3 weeks ago and couldn’t tell Julia HB where he got his funding.

Crowd funding isn’t transparent as it’s private. That’s where Farrage has slipped up! He also says he is cried funded.

Sorry crowd

Crowd funding isn’t transparent do keep up.

MaizieD Mon 13-May-19 18:17:32

Lots of things are crowd funded these days, there's nothing sinister about it except when someone gets hundreds of donations just below the level needed to declare them as donations to a political party

Does anyone have a link to Femi not being able to tell Julia HB how he is funded?

I can’t do links Maisie but you can Diwn load the pod cast.

As I say I like him I think he’s genuine but not so much those behind him

Mycatisahacker Mon 13-May-19 20:26:26

Bloody hell download!!

I think it was more he didn’t want to ‘get it wrong’ and be jumped on really.

petra Mon 13-May-19 20:37:02

Is this the one ?

Anniebach Mon 13-May-19 20:40:53

If he the party he was going to stand for was Change UK , he was pulled out for his safety

Mycatisahacker Mon 13-May-19 21:50:01

Bloody hell petra grin

I think, Annie, that he was going to stand for all the Remain parties but they discovered that would breach the Electoral regulations. I think that if parties were intending to act 'as one' and run a single candidate between them they would have had to have declared it some time ago.

I'm a bit hazy on this, though so I may not be correct.

Indeed I could if I had a link to it.

Anyone can do links if they put their minds to it. Find the item you want, copy the address in the address bar and paste it into your post.

Your link doesn't get anywhere useful, petra Thanks for trying, though.

Are you by any chance a retired head teacher from Kent? And my older sister you sound scarily alike.

Mycatisahacker Tue 14-May-19 09:08:33

And you don’t need a link to down load a podcast.

Go onto the radio station LBV and type in julia Hartley brewer and femmi.

You can do it if you put your mind to it.
