Westmonster and Leave.EU’s Arron Banks hit back at BBC’s Newsnight last night after a desperate package on the businessman that was widely panned on Twitter.

Newsnight’s Evan Davies was forced to read out a statement from Banks that read: “Since the referendum result and my support for Donald Trump I’ve been the subject of politically motivated attacks by mainstream media and Remain-supporting institutions.
“It comes as no surprise that Newsnight would join the party at this late stage with their own particular type of trashy News of The World journalism. After allegations of me being a Russian spy, part of a worldwide conspiracy to subvert democracy, the only surprise is how long its taken for Newsnight to have a pop at me.
“BBC Fake News is alive and well.”
Best thing we’ve seen on Newsnight for a long time…
