“Arron Banks launches anti-establishment website”

“Arron Banks, the former UKIP donor who bankrolled the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, is making a move into the media sector by backing an anti-establishment news website that launches tomorrow.

I can reveal that Westmonster is co-owned by Michael Heaver, former press adviser to Nigel Farage. The 27-year-old, who together with Mr Banks will own 50% of the website, will edit it day to day.

Modelled on the Drudge Report, the American aggregator site that generates huge traffic, Westmonster will be powered by the social media reach of Leave.EU, the campaign to which Mr Banks gave close to £7m – the largest donation in British political history.”

I think this article is important because regardless of the success of this particular project there are “Drudge Report” type websites beginning to appear across the globe. Free speech will reach new unforeseen heights in the future.
