Dark Money

THE SIMPLEST EXPLANATION, says Ockham’s razor, is usually the truth. When we look at what is unfolding to be the biggest political scandal in living memory – the Brexit dark money scandal – we are presented with two explanations; one fantastically convoluted story involving a number of right-wing figures, senior British Conservative politicians , key people in the Trump campaign, the Kremlin, an insane amount of money, coincidence and rank incompetence, and a public relations firm, and another exposed by The Guardian and The New York Times which zetetically follows the money and links all the dots. Nothing about this story is particularly easy to follow, but then we were never supposed to follow it. We weren’t meant to know about it.
