She said her husband must have signed her up at the same time as he joined the BNP.

If she didn’t sympathise, though, why didn’t she leave?

One of the Leave campaign’s biggest individual donors is a former member of the far-right BNP, it has been reported.

Gladys Bramall, an 88-year-old woman from Birmingham, has made two cash donations to Vote Leave Limited of £500,000 and £100,000, making her the campaign’s third-largest financial backer, Electoral Commission filings show.

Ms Bramall is also named on the database of then-members of the BNP that was published by WikiLeaks in November 2008, when Nick Griffin was still its leader.

The link will be embarrassing for the Vote Leave campaign, which has sought to distance itself from accusations of racism among its more extreme elements.
