Veritas - the funding
Kilroy lost the support of his previous source of funding, businessman Paul Sykes, some time ago. How can he afford to set up his own party?
There was also a surprising delay in the announcement of Veritas' launch since Kilroy quit UKIP - why?
The reason for the delay in the confirmation that the new party was going to be called "Veritas" was thanks to copyright issues. "Veritas" is a trademark of the US software firm of the same name - see www.veritas.com. Kilroy had to wait for their permission - and check out how similar the logos are:
UNLESS the party has the permission of the company to use it.
But that's not all. Veirtas (the company) has revenues of around $1.74 BILLION a year. On their website, Veritas (the company) also admits that "VERITAS employees are committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and live... To advance its commitment, VERITAS and the VERITAS Foundation have given over two million in cash and software to nonprofit organizations. VERITAS employees have also donated thousands of hours volunteering..."
Nonprofit organisations like a political party, by any chance? Kilroy's group couldn't possibly have been allowed to set up shop with a party which infringes the Veritas company's trademark without that company's consent. Without Paul Sykes' backing, Kilroy also did not have the money to afford to set up his own party.
Is the Veritas company funding Kilroy's anti-immigration, anti-foreigner fascist ideals?
Now let's zoom in:
How about now?:
