Greenpeace Campaigners Behind Anti-Brexit Campaign

For the last few days, Guido has been investigating an anti-Brexit group, Led by Donkeys, which has apparently been in breach of EU election spending limits:

Despite Guido presenting them with compelling evidence that anti-Brexit billboard campaign ‘Led By Donkeys’ are in breach of EU election spending limits, the Electoral Commission tell Guido that they are simply “monitoring the activities” of Led By Donkeys. They add that Led By Donkeys are “fully aware” that they will have to register if they spend more than £20,000 in England, or £10,000 in any other part of the UK. According to their own figures they’ve already spent over £230,000…

Since the Electoral Commission haven’t found the time in between staging Brexit Party stunts to open their investigation so far, Guido thought he would help them out with their inquiries.

Read the full post here.

One of Guido’s complaints was that Led by Donkeys was a completely anonymous grouping, which had not even registered with the Electoral Commission, which they must do by law if they spend over £20000 on the campaign.

Fast forward to last night, and Guido can now report that Led by Donkeys

Guido’s campaign for transparency over big-spending anti-Brexit campaign ‘Led By Donkeys’ has paid off. The Electoral Commission now are reporting details of who the mysterious campaign are – who have raised almost half a million pounds to fight Brexit in the last few months. Guido can now unm-ass-k the donkeys. You may spot a pattern…

  • James Sadri (Secretary): Sadri is the former ‘Head of Mobilisation’ at Greenpeace, he’s led numerous Greenpeace digital campaigns over the years including their ‘VW Dark Side’ and ‘Save the Arctic’ campaigns and previously worked for the BBC and the UN. Mysteriously, his Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts all appear to have been recently deactivated, although the internet never forgets
  • Ben Stewart: Stewart is Head of Speacial [sic] Projects at Greenpeace and was previously their Head of Campaign Communications and was one of six activists acquitted over causing £30,000 of criminal damage to a power station in 2008. His Twitter account has also been recently deleted
  • Oliver Knowles: Knowles is a… Greenpeace International Oceans Campaigner and their Global Tuna Campaign Leader, his LinkedIn described him as a Senior Advisor/Strategist although it has also recently disappeared. However, his Twitter account is still active and busy retweeting Led By Donkeys…
  • Will Rose: Rose is a photographer for (you’ve guessed it) Greenpeace, he’s taken photographs all over the world for Greenpeace campaigns before turning his attention closer to home. No social media to speak of but he’s got plenty of nice photo galleries

Lefty environmentalists are famously not very good with money, nonetheless Guido looks forward to them declaring how they’ve managed to buy over £230,000 worth of advertising for less than £159,750. Why have they been so keen to go dark on social media and hidden their Greenpeace connection?

Which all raises the question, why is Greenpeace so enthusiastic to stop Brexit?

    Greenpeace’s HQ is in Amsterdam.

    So why is a Dutch-based organisation meddling in the British aspect of the European election?

    I can’t wait to see this on the main BBC and Channel 4 news.

      I’ve just looked at both of them, and I fear you may have a long wait! Ch4 has several stories about Nigel Farage & The Brexit party being investigated…

        Dave, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before Harrabin will reveal the truth. And after Channel 4 has finished its investigations of Arron Banks, Nigel Farage and The Brexit Party, I feel sure it will find the time to investigate Greenpeace.

    Numerous green organizations have been lobbying in Canada with our own money against fossil fuels.It is all in an effort to make green energy companies rich. Read Robert Lyman on Heartland Institute website.. Heartland is a good website to explain the climate porn

    Would political campaigning be a breach of Greenpiss’s charity status?

      It would. Which will be why they set up a front-group. Its members will claim they were acting on an individual basis, not as representatives of Greenpeace.

      I’d like to see that put before a jury. But it won’t be.

    Greenpeace comprises layabouts who live a good life living of the public purse for their income, and believe they have a right to break the law on every front in which they want to fight. On this occasion it is sure to be their worry that Mr Farage will go further in the current political maelstrom, and that means he will have a great opportunity to put paid to the global warming hoax to the betterment of every individual in this great country of ours. Well done Guido Fawkes for you professional exposure of these rogues.

    Surely no one needed any proof that the EU and ‘the climate emergency’ are phalanges of the same global totalitarian socialist pincer movement?

    They have destroyed the viability of steel production in the UK, yet Brexit is blamed!

      The botched Brexit does have a part to play because the EU suspended payment of carbon credits from 1 January due to the failure of parliament to ratify the withdrawal agreement. The British Steel bill was £120m. FlyBMI crashed for the same reason.

    “why is Greenpeace so enthusiastic to stop Brexit?”

    I expect you know the answer, and that is that outside of the EU there may at some point be a faint glimmer of walking away from the Climate Change Act and its excesses. No chance whilst in the EU.

    Greenpeace are very good at infiltration. The article linked below, by Australian journalist Tony Thomas, describes how they installed their International Political Director as a “visiting scientist” at Potsdam, where he worked with Rahmstorf and Schellnhuber for several years.

    He was on the Tyndall Advisory board in its early days, as was Harrabin:
    http://www.bishop-hill.net/blog/2011/11/30/a-meeting-of-the-tyndall-advisory-board.html

    He has also been an IPCC Lead Author and officially monitors country emission responses under the Paris INDC’s, with his Climate Analytics company. He is always described as a senior climate scientist, but only has an honorary doctorate.

    https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/tony-thomas/2019/04/doctor-hares-nasty-green-prescriptions/

    It followed an earlier piece by Thomas which was a response to a biased programme on global warming by the Australian counterpart to the BBC, the ABC.

    https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/qed/2019/04/four-corners-march-hare-climatology/

    The Executive Director of Greenpeace International, Jennifer Morgan, is on the Grantham Institute Advisory Board.

    Greenpeace are upset about the Australian election result:

      We may wonder who is on the Electoral Commission.

    Nigel Farage should be all over this like a rash.

    Very noticeable how diverse this Anti – Brexit group are NOT.
    John Snow should investigate the hiring policy at Greenpeace.

    Because the EU is a lefty construct with federalising instincts like Greenpeace. Being a lefty construct, the EU will
    follow one of two courses- complete failure or a shift to authoritarian Stalinism. If the second, then Greenpeace leaders will be the first into the three tonner and away, thats how socialism works.
