The ‘Bad Boys of Brexit’ are called that because they called themselves that, and there’s nothing cooler than coming up with your own nickname.
Another thing they’ve decided to do for themselves is prove they didn’t collude with Russia. Namely by interrogating themselves on Nigel Farage’s LBC radio show.
The British media, ladies and gentlemen
The conversation was held between Nigel Farage, Arron Banks, and Andy Wigmore:
FARAGE: So – the big question on everyone’s mind is this: did we do it?
WIGMORE: No we didn’t.
FARAGE: Well, that’s that sorted. What else would you like to talk about?

BANKS: I think it’s important everyone knows the Remainiacs are only saying we colluded with Russia because they hacked the emails we were hiding .
WIGMORE: Not ‘hiding’, Arron.
BANKS: Oh yeah. I mean those emails we were not hiding. But anyway, if you don’t wanna hear about us colluding with Russians, maybe don’t hack our emails, yeah?
WIGMORE: Not ‘colluding’, Arron.
BANKS: Oh yeah. I meant not colluding.
FARAGE: So in summary, would you agree we’re being subjected to a witch-hunt?
BANKS: Definitely. Just let the witches get on with it – that’s what I say.
WIGMORE: No, Arron, the point of the saying is to imply the person conducting the witch-hunt has given into baseless paranoia.
BANKS: Wasn’t Baseless Paranoia the name of that club they took us to in Siberia?
WIGMORE: *PUTS HEAD IN HANDS*
FARAGE: Well, that clears that up. No collusion whatsoever!
For anyone worrying this is pretty dubious journalistic standards, don’t worry, because the Bad Boys may still have to deal with the courts. It’s just that post-Brexit, the justice system will be run by the Daily Express.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
