Westmonster: News website supporting Brexit, Farage and Trump set up by political donor Aaron Banks

Pro-Brexit businessman Aaron Banks is bankrolling a new political website.

Westmonster decribes itself as: “Pro-Brexit, pro-Farage, pro-Trump. Anti-establishment, anti-open borders, anti-corporatism.”

It said: “In an age of transformative political change that has been spearheaded by groups like Leave.EU, the media landscape is quickly changing too. And so here we are.

“Westmonster is part of the growing movement in the UK and right across the world that wants to see radical political change.”

Banks gave £7m to the campaign for Britain to leave the EU.

He told the BBC: “The internet and social media has changed the world and the mainstream media is lagging a long way behind in the way it communicates. We want to shake things up a bit.”

The site is co-owned by Michael Heaver, former press secretary for Nigel Farage.

He said the site will be “speaking to people in a way they understand in language they understand”.

The site launched today with a comment piece from Nigel Farage and a variety of anti-EU news stories aggregated from various other news sources.

  1. This as been a long time coming, my only concern being how will the one’s who aren’t computer savvy see this, will they still have to listen to the controlled TV channels.

  2. About time the monster of fake news was uncovered. The CIA paying journalists and media sources in America to give out fake news.
    Operation Mockingbird is being used worldwide to give out fake news to the gullible public.
    Our BBC in the UK is under it’s influence. Check out Operation Mockingbird!!
