Arron Banks, the millionaire businessman behind the Leave.EU campaign, was fined a total of £135,000 by the UK’s data watchdog today.

Bank’s Leave.EU Brexit campaign and his company Eldon Insurance (trading as Go Skippy) were each fined £60,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for serious breaches of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR), the law which governs electronic marketing.

Leave.EU was slapped with a further £15,000 fine for a “separate, serious breach of PECR regulation 22” after almost 300,000 emails containing a Leave.EU newsletter were sent to Eldon Insurance customers.
