The Brexit Bad Boys rolled into Washington to meet Trump again
Nigel Farage and Arron Banks, the man who bankrolled Brexit, are further embarrassing Theresa May’s Government by rubbing their noses in the fact Ukip and the Leave team have a much better relationship with the President-elect than anyone else.
And the anti-EU collection are not shy of flaunting their connections, posting a series of Twitter pictures lauding their political clout.
One picture was captioned: “In Washington D.C. for the Trump inauguration. Great to be with @PhilBryantMS, @LordAshcroft and the Brexit Bad Boys!”
Mr Banks, speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, explained what it means to be a Brexit bad boy.
Ukip’s largest donor and founder of Leave.eu and Grassroots Out said: “It refers to our exploits during the referendum campaign. It explains what we did and how we used Donald Trump’s tactics and proved that they work.”
Mr Banks, Nigel Farage and Lord Ashcroft – the man responsible for the lurid pig-related claims about David Cameron in his sensational book ‘Call Me Dave’ – have rented out the top floor of the exclusive, five star Hay Adams hotel in Washington, which has a balcony "so Nigel can smoke".

They are part of a guest list that includes Mr Trump and 500 other influential figures.
But despite rubbing shoulders with the most powerful man in the world, Mr Banks is not hopeful that Downing Street will stand up and take notice.
Banks sai Westminster "hates" the Brexit bad boys
He said: “You would have thought this would give us some sway in Westminster but they all hate us. It’s a shame.
“Without the petty tribalism we are much better connected than any of the Tories, I mean Nigel even campaigned for Donald.”
