Reform UK party leader Richard Tice blocked from securing business loan ‘because of his political views’ just over a month since Nigel Farage ‘debanking’ scandal
- The Reform UK party leader was rejected for a loan from financial giant Swiss Re
Leading Brexit campaigner Richard Tice was ‘debanked’ because of his political views, a financial document reveals.
The Reform UK party leader had applied to financial giant Swiss Re for a business loan in April last year. But an internal report said his company Quidnet Capital was rejected as he was a ‘reputational risk’.
Explaining the ‘reason for decline’, it added that ‘the chief executive is Richard Tice, a former member of the European Parliament. He is currently leader of Reform UK’.
Mr Tice blamed ‘wokeness’, telling The Sun on Sunday: ‘I’m a man who’s made money, brought in investment and created jobs in this country.
‘If that’s how they think of people who are successful businessmen then God help us all.’
