I am so angry & upset with 10 Downing Street for outing Shahmir. And I’m fucking furious with the BBC for treating it like a spat. #Marr https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/mar/24/brexit-whistleblower-shahmir-sanni-interview-vote-leave-cambridge-analytica?CMP=share_btn_tw …
Why? Because this is a scandal that goes to the very heart of government. Boris Johnson, Michael Gove & 2 of Theresa May's advisors in the frame. This isn't about party politics. It's about the law.
This is a Google drive. Set up by Vote Leave to co-ordinate BeLeave's messaging.
March 1, 2017: Electoral Commission opened an investigation into illegal co-ordination between campaigns.
March 17: senior Vote Leave director deletes herself & 2 others from 140 files.
Shahmir has family in Pakistan where homosexuality is neither accepted nor tolerated. I had grave fears for him & them. And on Friday those fears were realised when no 10 outed him. Shocking, shameful & indefensible that Theresa May's office did this.
Last week's story about about Facebook? The one that wiped $79 billion off the stock price? It was dropped by @BBC's Panorama. This week's story? Dropped by @BBC's Panorama. They have this evidence. They've just refused to broadcast it. Questions?
