Expose the DUP and Their #DarkMoney Donors - Crowdfund The Investigation!

 

 

 

Why you should support openDemocracy

 

Update: our scoops have made global headlines and we've forced a law change on donor secrecy - but the government's refusing to backdate the new rules, keeping the DUP's Brexit donors a mystery. So it's down to us to expose them - and we're getting close. Please donate and spread the word!

Theresa May desperately needs the DUP -- the hard-right party that has blocked same-sex marriage and squandered half a billion of taxpayers’ money in Northern Ireland — to prop up her unstable government. They laud Enoch Powell, and her deal with them threatens 20 years of hard-won peace in Northern Ireland.

But that's not all.

Last year, openDemocracy revealed the DUP spent £425,000 on pro-Brexit campaigning – far more than they’d ever spent on a political campaign – and were trying to keep the source of the cash secret.

Under pressure from our investigation, the DUP admitted the money came via a shady group which (we revealed) has links to Saudi intelligence.

The DUP has told openDemocracy these links “aren’t a problem for us” and have refused to reveal the true source of the cash.

Well, we think it’s time to make it a problem for them – and for Theresa May. If the DUP is going to be a lynchpin of the UK government, we must know who bankrolls them and why they’re so determined to keep it a secret.

To do this, we need your help.

Can you chip in to the crowdfunder on this page to boost our investigation at this vital moment, so that we can expose the dark money bankrolling British politics?
