The £400,000 donation to pro-Brexit campaign

Chief Correspondent

It’s a shadowy tale of a secret political donation: £425,000 which went to the pro-Brexit campaign. But where did it come from? No-one knows, except the Government’s new partners in power, the DUP. And under old electoral rules, which have since been changed, they didn’t have to reveal the source of political donations. Tonight we track down the middleman behind it all, and we ask why the Government won’t backdate the new transparent funding rules to cover the Brexit vote. Could it be because the DUP is the only party blocking the idea?
