Hi,

the Government is making claims of ensuring everyone has high speed connection to broadband – a situation they are seemingly a million miles from achieving, whilst the public, myself included, clamour for workable broadband speeds and reliability in this modern age (which we do not have in this area!).

People can hardly complain when once people get decent connections, particvularly if they are stupid enough to plaster their private details all over the likes of Facebook, Instagram and the like, don’t be surprised if corporations, politicians, government and crooks use that data you have freely given.

We have here the latest version of invasion of privacy which is just as specious and fundamentally dishonest as all those petty nobodies who had their phones hacked and got huge compensation for being too idle or too stupid to change their passwords!

The internet is remarkably simple to control, but the will to do so is not there!

On line obscenity, abuse, pornography can be stopped with one simple control – but the industry and Government seem unwilling to do anything about it.

In the mean time don’t expect anything on the internet to be private – it just isn’t – and for as long as it isn’t don’t be surprised or complain if the information you pump out is used, whether to your advantage or against!

Leave.EU used ‘creepy’ Facebook profiling technology to win Brexit campaign — and now the data watchdog is investigating

  • Leave.EU admits using “creepy” Facebook tech to scoop up data and target voters with anti-EU messages.
  • The data firm that helped Donald Trump take office, Cambridge Analytica, distances itself from the Leave.EU project.
  • Questions over whether Leave.EU broke rules on political donations and if Cambridge Analytica breached data protection laws.

LONDON — The communications director for Leave.EU, the Nigel Farage-backed Brexit campaign group, has admitted using “creepy” Facebook profiling technology to persuade Brits to vote to leave Europe. 

Leave.EU communications director Andy Wigmore told The Observer at the weekend that the group — which is bankrolled by UKIP’s biggest donor Aaron Banks — harvested personal data last year and targeted voters on Facebook with anti-EU messaging.

He claimed Leave.EU worked with Cambridge Analytica (CA), the data firm credited with helping Donald Trump win the US election, on an informal basis on the project. CA has denied it worked for the campaign, however.

Now Leave.EU is the subject of a complaint over whether it broke the rules on political donations, and Cambridge Analytica is being investigated by the government’s data protection agency over whether it breached privacy laws, sources tell Business Insider.

Facebook as a propaganda weapon

Wigmore told The Observer that Facebook was a powerful weapon in Leave.EU’s armoury. “Using artificial intelligence, as we did, tells you all sorts of things about that individual and how to convince them with what sort of advert,” he said.

“And you knew there would also be other people in their network who liked what they liked, so you could spread. And then you follow them. The computer never stops learning and it never stops monitoring.”

Thomson ReutersHe admitted that the technology’s accuracy is unsettling. Wigmore said: “It’s really creepy! It’s why I’m not on Facebook! I tried it on myself to see what information it had on me and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ What’s scary is that my kids had put things on Instagram and it picked that up. It knew where my kids went to school.”

He told The Observer that CA was “happy to help” with its work on Brexit on a pro bono basis. This, he said, is because Farage is a “good friend” of Robert Mercer, the hedge fund billionaire who is reported to have invested in CA.

The firm has developed a proprietary technique known as “psychographics” to profile individuals and target them with messages, but in a statement to Business Insider, it said it played no part in Leave.EU’s Brexit campaign. “Cambridge Analytica did not carry out any kind of paid or unpaid work for Leave.EU,” a spokesman told us.

Business Insider contacted Leave.EU four times to ask why CA was disputing Wigmore’s version of events and request more information about the data firm’s actual involvement in the social media profiling. Leave.EU did not respond to our emails or phone calls.

Complaint to Electoral Commission and data protection probe

A complaint has been filed with the Electoral Commission over CA’s alleged work for Leave.EU, according to a source who has seen the complaint. Under election rules, political parties must declare donations of £7,500 or more, including services-in-kind.

“My guess is that we are now beginning to see a rather fuller picture of how the Leave vote and the Trump vote really came about,” the source told Business Insider. The source was a supporter of Britain remaining in the European Union but agreed only to talk anonymously in order to avoid any attendant negative publicity.

HOW Nigel Farage & His Rag Tag Rabble Met POTUS Elect Donald Trump had more to do with his adiction to nicotine than any appointment or skill he or the rabble have + a fortuitous demonstration that put Trump Tower under lock down!

Hi,

a fortuitous selfie on which a sales rep can build a sales pitch:

Your gold door’s worth more than my house! The riotous inside story of Farage and his Ukip posse’s astonishing coup as he became the first foreign politician to meet President-elect Trump 

  • Nigel Farage has become first UK politician to meet the president-elect
  • Ukip leader visited Trump Tower penthouse with key Brexiteer allies 
  • Selfie of British quartet outside the opulent residence tagged ‘Brex Pistols’

The smiles in the photograph say it all. A jubilant Nigel Farage and his closest Brexiteer allies grin as they celebrate meeting president-elect Donald Trump.

Standing outside the breath-takingly opulent gold-and-diamond front door of the £80million penthouse in Trump Tower, New York, the British quartet – Ukip donor Arron Banks, Mr Farage, Leave.EU communications chief Andy Wigmore and former Ukip aide Raheem Kassam – look on top of the world.

And they have even given their gang a nickname – the ‘Brex pistols’.

The sight of Mr Farage’s beaming visage alongside Mr Trump has caused consternation not just in Downing Street but in capitals throughout the EU.

Theresa May has had to be content with a mere telephone call from Trump – and even then she had to wait until nine other countries’ leaders were called, although at least she was ahead of Germany and France.

Nigel Farage (pictured centre with Donald Trump) met the president-elect in his Trump Tower penthouse with Ukip donor Arron Banks (second from left), Leave.EU communications chief Andy Wigmore (second from right) and former Ukip aide Raheem Kassam (right). Mr Trump's pollster Gerry Gunster (pictured left) helped with the Brexit campaign and also joined the gathering on Saturday night in New York

Mr Trump’s pollster Gerry Gunster (pictured left) helped with the Brexit campaign and also joined the gathering on Saturday night in New York 

In contrast, Farage was given a tour of new leader of the free world’s New York home with its floor-to-ceiling marble, gilded columns and pilasters, its gaudy crystal chandeliers dripping with gilt, and a huge fresco depicting the Greek god Apollo crossing the heavens in his chariot.

Farage and four of his close allies from the referendum campaign were mesmerised by the lavish surroundings they found themselves in – a Renoir on the wall was ‘magnificent’, commented one of them, while the bronze classical statue of Eros and Psyche was ‘striking’ and the views overlooking Central Park were the best in New York.

Trump enlisted Farage’s help during the campaign because, like him, Farage was a political outsider – and had stunned the political establishment over Brexit.

Farage spoke at a political rally in Mississippi for Trump in August, and Trump had famously issued that clarion cry: ‘It’s gonna be Brexit plus, plus, plus!’

The invitation for Farage to join Trump in New York came in the early hours of Wednesday when it was clear Hillary Clinton was heading for a shock defeat. It was offered by Steve Bannon, chief executive of the Trump campaign, who has been hotly tipped to play a key role at the White House.

Farage was already in the US because he had been making a speech in Florida and was scheduled to appear on chat shows. Arriving at Trump Tower on Saturday, he had expected to have talks with some of the victorious campaign team, and perhaps come back for a brief chat with Trump the following day, the president-elect’s diary permitting.

But that was not what took place at all. Farage and his party’s visit coincided with an anti-Trump protest of 30,000 people outside Trump Tower – and a nervous US Secret Service ordered the building to be ‘locked down’. No one was allowed in or out for four-and-a-half hours.

At one point, Farage and his team ventured on to a 21st-floor balcony for a cigarette, looking down on the milling mob of protesters. Security ordered them in, fearing they could be a target for snipers.

It was as he was drinking coffee with Bannon that Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway walked past. She stopped in her tracks when she saw Farage, whose performances in Mississippi and on TV had gained him notoriety among the Trump team.

Conway – tipped to be White House Press secretary – embraced Farage and said simply: ‘Let’s go and see the president. He wants to see you.’

They took two escalators to reach the penthouse then Farage and his party were ushered in around 4pm. They left about an hour later – having organised selfies in front of Trump’s gold-and-diamond door.

‘It’s real gold, you know,’ they were told. ‘And worth more than my house,’ quipped one of them, a multi-millionaire, in return.

After the Brexit result, this was the coup of Farage’s life. So how did the 52-year-old, who has failed seven times to be elected to the Commons, manage it? He beat not only prime ministers and presidents but also many senior Republicans in the race to break bread with the man who, in two months’ time, will be the most powerful on the planet.

The key lies not just with larger-than-life Farage, whose friendship with Trump was formed in the heat of battle on the campaign trail in Mississippi. But also with the four others who posed outside the apartment door. Each had a role to play.

Nigel Farage vows to help the UK government ‘get on with Trump’

Theresa May has had to be content with a mere telephone call from Trump

Businessman Arron Banks, 50, is a former Tory donor who switched sides to Ukip in October 2014.

He had been planning to give the party £100,000 as an introductory gift, but upped the donation to £1million when former Tory leader William Hague condescendingly claimed he had never heard of Banks. It was a serious error by Hague. Banks, who made his fortune in insurance and owns diamond mines in South Africa, became utterly committed to the Brexit campaign.

He wanted not only to secure an exit from the EU but also to humiliate David Cameron and the Tory high command – especially after they embarked on Project Fear.

He put £6.5million of his own fortune into the campaign for Brexit and recruited other rich businessmen to his Leave.EU cause.

One key appointment by Banks was Gerry Gunster, a Washington political strategist, who has worked on dozens of referendums in the US and boasts a 90 per cent success rate. On joining Leave.EU, Gunster advised making immigration a priority and targeting disaffected white voters who feared for their jobs and had seen wages driven down by EU migrants.

Crucially, Gunster knew leading figures in the Trump campaign and was at Trump Tower with Farage at the weekend. He was stood on the far left of the group picture.

Mr Kassam last month quit the Ukip leadership contest after it emerged he had posted offensive misogynistic messages about rivals on social media.

The 30-year-old has been London editor-in-chief of US news website and radio station Breitbart since May last year. He was chief adviser to Farage in the run-up to the last general election, in which the party received 4million votes and pushed the Lib Dems into fourth place.

It just so happens that Steve Bannon – the senior Trump aide who invited them to New York in the first place – is the most powerful figure at Breitbart in the US. And it was Breitbart that helped expose the recent sexting scandal involving the husband of a key Clinton aide, Huma Abedin – which Hillary Clinton blamed this weekend for her defeat.

Kassam’s misogynist leanings have an echo in Trump, of course. He had to apologise to Suzanne Evans, who is running for the Ukip leadership, after describing her as a ‘wrinkly old ginger bird’. He once called for SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon’s legs to be ‘taped together’ so she could not ‘reproduce’.

Another gold-plated connection came through 50-year-old Mr Wigmore. A businessman who works closely with Banks, he is a diplomat with the Belize High Commission in London working in trade and industry.

His pedigree includes running his own media company, a stint as a TV reporter, and working in the presentation department of Conservative central office.

Like Banks he became disillusioned with the Tories over their EU policies. More than ten years ago he successfully sued former justice secretary Michael Gove over allegations about his private life. Gove paid £10,000 in damages.

After the Republican Convention in July, when Trump was endorsed as candidate, the hard-drinking Wigmore and Farage were celebrating in a bar in Ohio late at night.

Wigmore introduced Farage to staff of Mississippi governor Phil Bryant, one of the few Republicans publicly backing Trump. They got on so well they were invited to meet Bryant the following month.

Four weeks later Farage, Banks, and Wigmore met at Heathrow to fly to the US. They downed three ‘cappuccino martinis’, one of Farage’s favourite drinks.

On the plane they got through four bottles of red wine.

They were picked up in a blacked-out limousine with security staff and whisked off to meet Bryant and his wife Deborah at their colonial-style mansion.

In the car an aide of the governor talked Farage through the schedule, which included an interview on Mississippi’s main radio station, a visit to the Mississippi government headquarters, lunch with supporters and a speech at a private fundraising event with Trump and his backers. It was to be billed ‘Mr Brexit meets Mr Trump’.

In his book The Bad Boys Of Brexit, Banks reveals Farage dominated the fundraiser. ‘The guests could not get enough of Nigel’s 25-year battle against the EU and victory in the referendum.’

Farage’s speech was given a standing ovation. Banks’ book says: ‘Trump called Farage back on stage and showered him with plaudits and drew parallels between the Brexit campaign and his own.’

Farage was given a tour of new leader of the free world’s New York home with its floor-to-ceiling marble, gilded columns and pilasters

Trump then got Farage to speak at an event in front of a crowd of 15,000 people later that same day. Trump dropped the former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, who had initially been scheduled to make the speech.

Farage duly whipped the crowd into a frenzy when he said Trump could – and would – win. ‘You can beat the pollsters in this presidential race. We did it with Brexit. You can do the same.

‘If I was an American citizen I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me. In fact, I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if she paid me.’

The crowd went wild. Trump loved it. After the speech, as Trump was heading to his private jet for the next leg of his exhausting election tour, he saw Farage, Banks and Wigmore and said: ‘Those boys look like trouble.’

Back in Britain, Farage was publicly criticised by senior Ukip figures for embracing Trump. They feared that it would damage the Ukip brand and they criticised him for becoming involved in an overseas election.

Farage told me last night: ‘Anyone who knows Donald Trump says he is very loyal to people who have been loyal to him. Trump knew members of my own party turned against me.

‘He appreciated what I had done. Meeting with us on Saturday was payback.

‘As for my own role, I would say that some of the noises about Trump coming out from the children advising Theresa May are so juvenile. Downing Street should be having a constructive conversation. If I can help that I will.’

After Farage’s success in Mississippi, Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway studied details of all the private polling in the referendum.

They talked to Gerry Gunster. They finessed their message about the impact of immigration on jobs and ruthlessly targeted white working-class voters who had traditionally voted Democrat.

They also closely studied Farage speeches and interviews, deciding to make a virtue of Trump being despised by the establishment of the Republican Party.

As the Clinton camp wheeled out ever more celebrities – from Madonna to Bruce Springsteen – Farage and Banks told Trump to boast about the fact they were ‘fighting on their own against the rest’. Banks, who is now considering severing his Ukip funding, said that, whatever Downing Street decides about Farage, he will be a player.

‘Trump and Farage are both charismatic. He can talk to Farage knowing they are not rivals but have the same outlook. It’s why he called himself the Brexit president. When we walked into the penthouse one of the first things Trump said was: “Do you think my win is as big as Brexit?”

‘Farage replied: “Brexit was the first brick in the wall. Your victory is massive.”’

Farage joked this week about the prospect of a job with Trump: ‘If he did offer me something I would quite like to be his ambassador to the European Union. I think I would do that job very well.’

After Saturday’s encounter, it might be a more serious proposition than anyone thought.

Hi,

so yet another Ukip effort to bend the truth in a hagiography I guess!

First there was the stunningly tedious ‘Hard Pounding’ then a series by the affable Mark Daniels who sadly died CLICK HERE, he was first hired in by Roger Knapman to write ‘Cranks & Gadflies’ and then retained by Nigel Farage to write a series of hagiographies passed off as autobiographies. Now presumably this latest hagiography will be an attempt to sell the myth that Nigel Farage & Aaron Banks were in some way responsible for BreXit.

It has been a well understood truism that ‘he who wins the war writes the history’, but nowadays, with the burgeoning of vanity publishing & short run publications, there is an increasing tendency to rush to print to grab the truth by the scruff of the neck and publish a book selling ones own spin, to lay claim to a hagiographical version of the truth. There are numerous journalists who moonlight writing or editing books and media, to deliver whatever myth the pay master wants delivered.

Presumably the bigger the payment the more prominent the author and/or journalist! No surprises there then.

I am however surprise that a front line journalist for a major National newspaper sat on the story of tyhe arrest she witnessed on the 22nd. July, only publishing on Friday 12th. August! It does of course show how readily news is manipulated to suit and I guess he who pays the piper calls the shots!

Daily Mail’s Farage/FBI Arrest “Scoop” Was an Inside Job

 
By Kieran Corcoran | 3:36 am, August 17, 2016

Saturday’s Daily Mail carried a surprisingly vivid account of the arrest of Nigel Farage’s aide, George Cottrell.

Cottrell, 22, was ambushed at Chicago’s O’Hare airport and led away by FBI agents on a variety of charges related to financial misconduct – including money laundering – several weeks ago.

  

Arrested Ukip/Farage aide George Cottrell with donor Arron Banks attending Andrew Marr programme a few weeks ago

The story, billed as an Exclusive by the Mail’s political editor-at-large Isabel Oakeshott, is surprisingly detailed in its recounting of the event.

Oakeshott

The Mail reported:

As they arrived in the US, Cottrell was briefly detained by customs officers in Chicago in what appeared to be a routine check before being allowed to continue his journey.

To Mr Farage’s shock, five FBI officers were waiting to meet Cottrell as they disembarked from their return flight from Cleveland to Chicago O’Hare on July 22, en route to Heathrow.

The distressed former Ukip leader – who knew nothing of his aide’s alleged illegal activities – was given no information about Cottrell’s arrest, and was forced to return to London without him.

If it seems almost as detailed as an eyewitness account, that’s because it is.

Heat Street can reveal that Oakeshott was at the airport with Farage and his entourage when the agents struck.

She had spent the earlier portion of the day watching Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, and live-tweeted parts of his speech:

What a spectacle

 

Although the Mail makes no explicit reference to the fact, she was travelling with the group, which included Cottrell and Leave.EU spokesman Andy Wigmore.

Oakeshott was along for the ride as part of her efforts to co-write a book on the EU Referendum.

The tome has been described by insiders as a “hagiography” of UKIP.

The book’s existence was revealed recently in the diary pages of the Evening Standard – prompting Oakeshott to claim she is “just helping” and that the named authors will be Wigmore and Banks:

@IsabelOakeshott Looking forward to your Brexit book. When is publication?

Thanks for your interest @ESallyB – it’s @Arron_banks and @andywigmore ‘s book not mine – I’m just helping. As fast as we can write it!

Perhaps, but Heat Street understands that Oakeshott is in fact being paid a healthy fee for her help – and good luck to her.

But shouldn’t the Mail’s readers have been told that the author of its potentially serious crime story was in fact on the scene as the action unfolded, making nice with those closest to the suspect as part of a moonlighting exercise?
