    There is so much going on in this hearing with Arron Banks and his crony, Andy Wigmore, today. Live blog here, and obviously Carole Cadwalladr is tweeting from the room, but I'll wait until it's all done before I try and put my thoughts in order.

    What frustrates me is in the US you've got the Special Prosecutor indicting dudes left, right and centre, and here we're just kinda inviting these crooks for tea and biscuits, with some mild probing for good measure.

    In related news Carole Cadwalladr has been shortlisted for Private Eye's Paul Foot award for investigative and campaigning journalism.

    Lots of other worthy names there too!
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    She's been amazing, I hope she does win.

    Yesterday's hearing was bizarre. I don't even know what the fuck those two morons were playing at. Did they think that veering between jokey bantz and raging at the impudence of their inquisitors was... a strategy?

    Pretty obvious that the committee is pissed off and will do what they can to compel them to return for further testimony. And Christopher Wylie is saying that he reported Banks and Leave.EU to the National Crime Agency (UK's organized crime specialists) months ago after seeing these e-mails Oakshott was sitting on (Christ, where to begin with her...).

    Farage is still a "person of interest" to the FBI, right?

    Was literally coming here to post that, word for word.
