If you ever wonder "Why is 'The Brexit Party' a limited company rather than a Political Party?"

Well here's a big clue: Maybe a thread, maybe I'll do some real work.
Now, not only do they get to "trade" past the election; they don't even have to file their accounts until summer 2020. So it's likely to be Autumn 2020 before anyone can interrogate their finances.

They'll also be able to publish extremely limited information
Manipulation of the Balance sheet would allow a certain level of divestment to keep the balance under £316,000 requires some creativity; but NOTHING ILLEGAL (currently), whilst turnover remains over the £632,000***

***We do not know if "Donations" are being filed as income.
We WONT know until 2020. So you get to work a whole 18 months behind reality. And that's where it gets interesting for Farage....
Who remembers this amazing @mrjamesob demolition of @Nigel_Farage?

In it JOB discusses NF's involvement in a company (FARAGE LIMITED Company number 04659240) with tax improprieties, which attempted to go bust owing thousands.
@mrjamesob @Nigel_Farage And I am quoting Mr Farage (from that interview) here: "We have a responsibility to pay our tax bill, and it is being paid" "Actually, it's being paid out of earned income and the inland revenue is getting twice the money out of it"

But it took us 18 months before we could check
@mrjamesob @Nigel_Farage So let's take a look shall we. Surely this will be easy:
But it get's better, because Limited companies undergoing liquidation, must appoint a liquidator, who frequently files.... Let's take a look shall we. At this "Paid from earned income" and "Double payment" claim.

Lot's to get our teeth into here.
So let's try to get a snapshot; from the final meeting. And straight away; here is evidence that @Nigel_Farage was involved in unlawful payment of dividends. First page. Right here. But it gets so so so much better.
@Nigel_Farage You think losing £100 for a Brexit Seat was bad? Let's take a look at who else picked up the bill for #FailingFarage

12p on the £ for what is effectively misappropriated funds by the directors.
@Nigel_Farage Well that was generous of him right? Again, this is not smearing by family. This is a company in which Nigel Farage held legal obligations as an officer.
@Nigel_Farage Here's unsecured creditors. These are generally what are known as Trade debtors on other people's books. Farage owes these people money, but instead of paying them, he paid himself a unlawful dividend, didn't pay it back, and stiffed them for 87% of their expectations.
@Nigel_Farage Now again, I'm not saying, for one second, that @Nigel_Farage did anything illegal, or indeed that his co-conspirators, or as we call them "other directors" engaged in anything illegal.
@Nigel_Farage But what Nigel Farage DID do, was go on National Radio, and lie blatantly regarding the affairs of this company. Just out right lied.

What he was party to was the stiffing of several other companies.
@Nigel_Farage So what can we expect from Brexit Party Limited in 2020?

Well if I am honest. You can expect a missed filing date, and a notification of wind up. Potentially before any accounts are EVEN DUE.

Once the election is over, Brexit Party Limited can be wound up. it has no purpose
@Nigel_Farage We may never know if they counted "Donations" as "Income"; or what they paid themselves as directors. Whether or not dividends were unlawful. Or ultimately; what happened to the money that 351 candidates gave to Mr Farage.
@Nigel_Farage It's going to be electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/party-o… that we want to pay particular attention to.
@Nigel_Farage This is important:

They don't have to report loans to the Electoral Commission. Which is staggering given the questions around loans provided to Leave.EU from one @Arron_Banks

You don't touch the hot stove twice.
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks Ooomph. Wouldn't want to have to provide audited statements. Definitely wouldn't want to be subject to PPERA 2000 - Especially after Leave.EU got stung by breaking those rules. Except @darrengrimes_ who was ruled, in court, as "Too stupid to understand"
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ Oomph, look at all those rules and regulations for taking money! Wouldn't want to be bound by those would you! Especially if you want to get in, get out and keep some pie for yourself.
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ Not to mention the due diligence required to satisfy these rules:
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ Here's your real stinger though. Basically it's live reporting of your donations. If you're interested, you can get this for real political parties here: electoralcommission.org.uk/who-we-are-and…

What would people think if they knew who was backing this party?
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ But again, I digress. Because what's really important is how much skin @Nigel_Farage has in the game. How much is he on the hook for if this entire thing blows up?

Here's SH01 dated 16/09/2019
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ For people playing at home. That means when Brexit Party Limited is wound up; no matter how much it owes other people. @Nigel_Farage will be liable for a maximum of £10.

I'm not saying this is going to happen. I'm certainly not even inferring it based on his previous record.
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ This is information I literally pulled, live as I tweeted, from public domain sources that you can check.

The question is of course. Why not one of the Hosts, Panel Guests, Interviewers or platformers of @Nigel_Farage have every bothered to do this.
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ Now some might think of this as self aggrandising, an attempt to solicit contract work in my field. Except it's certainly not, for two reasons.

1) I'm a FTE now, so can't accept contracts.
2) I'm the type of FTE who spent best part of an hour live tweeting research.
@Nigel_Farage @Arron_banks @darrengrimes_ Thank you for coming to my tedTalk. And Fuck @Nigel_Farage and Fuck @brexitparty_uk

Also. Before you try it again, Remember the law requires the libeled party to prove that I am wrong. I'd be pissing my pants in excitement over the disclosure phases if you want to litigate this.
