Led By Donkeys, the anti-Brexit activist group has outrageously purchased the Brexit Party's website and in an ironic twist Nigel Farage is trying to get it back by using EU laws.

At the time of writing the cost to buy the website domain from Led By Donkeys is just over a million pounds, a figure that is increasing by a penny every second and should Farage cough up the money, the cash will go directly to the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants.
Since the realisation that their party's page domain has been 'hijacked', the Brexit Party have consulted the corporate lawyers Wedlake Bell who are unironically using EU laws in a bid to retrieve the web address.
They claim that the Brexit Party logo and design are protected under several European Union design laws, which is ironic as this is the very institution that they object to so vehemently.

Dunno if he'll cough up, but for now we’ve turned https://t.co/OQ5hfKpVXw into a Tory-Brexit Party electoral allian… https://t.co/Ohr6yH1Lfu
