For immediate release
Andrew Allison, Chief Executive of The Freedom Association, has issued the following statement in support of Nigel Farage:
“Nigel Farage has not only had his bank account closed by Coutts because of his political views - views shared by millions of people in the UK, he has also been refused an account by ten other banks.
"The Freedom Association not only offers its support to Nigel Farage, it is also calling for the Government to ensure that banks who act in a similar way to Coutts are dealt with appropriately.
"What has happened to Mr Farage is a direct threat to free speech and is completely unacceptable in a free society. Action is required."
