What Leave campaigners Banks and Wigmore said when asked: “Are you Russian agents?”

The self-styled ‘bad boys of Brexit’, Arron Banks and Andy Wigmore told ITV News the allegations that they were Russian agents trying to influence the referendum were untrue.

“I’m still waiting for the cheque from President Putin for the alleged money if that is the case but no, of course not,” said Millionaire campaigner Mr Banks.

Leave.EU communications chief Mr Wigmore mocked the suggestion that he had ties to the Kremlin saying: “Absolutely not.

“Or should I say, ‘niet’ – it’s an absurd suggestion.”
