Brexit architect Nigel Farage is claiming that British bank Coutts & Co. shut down his bank accounts after deciding that his views “do not align with our values.”

The ex-UKIP leader said in June that the exclusive bank — which is also used by the Royal Family — had written him a letter informing him that both his personal and business accounts were being closed down, offering no explanation as to why.

Farage said in a video published on Twitter on Tuesday that he had obtained evidence proving that he accounts were closed because of his political views as part of a campaign to force him out of the United Kingdom.

BBC reported at the time that the bank had cut ties with Farage because his account fell below the minimum required balance. (RELATED: ‘Political Persecution’: Nigel Farage Claims He’s Been Shut Out Of His Bank Accounts)

Now, however, the Brexiteer claims to have obtained a 40-page memo from the bank admitting that his account was closed not because of any financial concerns, but rather due to his “[s]upport for Trump + views on immigration, net zero & the vaccine,” Farange wrote in a tweet.

The Daily Caller has reached out to both Nigel Farage and Coutts for comment.
