Wetherspoons boss donates £200k to Vote Leave

The boss of the Wetherspoons pub chain has donated £200k to Vote Leave.

Tim Martin founded the JD Wetherspoon chain in 1979 which has gone on to become one of the world's largest and most successful pub chains. He is concerned about the effect of EU red tape on small businesses.

Whilst Vote Leave have been successful in raising a considerable amount of money from ordinary members of the public and a few big name donors, the mad cows at the BSE campaign are flush with money with establishment figures like Lord Sainsbury and Lord Rose donating millions to top up the millions the British government are spending on their behalf. The BSE campaign have already raised more in donations than their spending limit so any new money they get is just being spent on staff to churn out propaganda as staffing costs aren't included in spending limits.

The leave campaign is massively out-funded by the BSE campaign which has the backing of government with vast sums of taxpayers' money being thrown into promoting their message. What they Project Fear doesn't have, though, is people on the street putting leaflets through letterboxes and talking to members of the public. This is where the leave campaign's strength lies but it takes a lot of people to make as much of an impact as the £14m the BSE campaign has in the bank so if you haven't already done so, get in touch with your local UKIP branch, Vote Leave, Leave.EU, Grassroots Out, Better Off Out or any other campaign working to get us out of the EU and see what you can do to help.
