He is a fluent Spanish speaker and continues to work as an operator on the private military circuit.

@bigphilcampion @LouiseMensch @dmurph61 @Arron_banks I believe you Phil.

I don’t think that @bigphilcampion has any case to answer here whatsoever. Absolutely nothing wrong with filming that, and he didn’t edit it. But the migrant fake attack? @Arron_banks how isn’t that inciting racial hatred? #Brexit

@bigphilcampion @FrannyBenali @CR_UK Thanks so much for your support Phil 😊
