A donor known to have given £1 million to the UK Independence Party (UKIP) is alleged to be the backer of a website whose sole purpose is to produce slanderous material against Westminster’s three main parties, Labour, Tory and Liberal Democrat.
Entrepreneur Arron Banks, who founded the website GoSkippy.com, is believed to have both registered and funded the website LibLabCon. Party sources told the Financial Times that while he funds the project, he does not write articles for the site.
LibLabCon.com, writes satirical news articles and claims to operate on a non-partisan basis.
“For too long now, the political elite have had their heads buried in the sand and take the people for granted. We aren’t right-wing, left-wing or any-wing … We treat all politicians with equal contempt,” the banner on the homepage reads.
