Scotland Yard risked being dragged into a politically charged row over Sir Kim Darrochs emails after a teenager working for the Brexit Party said he was the middleman who obtained the classified documents.
Steven Edginton, 19, who runs the Brexit Partys social media feeds, insisted he passed the documents to the political journalist Isabel Oakeshott.
Mr Edginton, who also describes himself as a freelance journalist, said he did not want his name on the articles, subsequently published in the mail on Sunday, to avoid possible controversy.

Career’s off to a smashin’ start...
Just like the Hillary emails. Everybody acts like what’s IN the emails is no big deal, the crime that matters is nailing the person dared to let the little people know what’s really going on.
I care more about the content then who was kind enough to let us all know the truth.
Same as the guy who leaked the DNC emails showing the primary was rigged for Hillary.
Ben Franklin similarly came in possession of and anonymously made public some embarrassing correspondence by a British (Massachusetts Governor Hutchinson) politician. In both cases a patriotic albeit underhanded act, worthy of praise. That being said, we can probably rely on the stuffed shirts on both sides of the Pond to respond in anger.
I believe the emails were linked by the Remain side. Further driving a wedge between the US and the UK only serves their purposes.
For national interest? Shouldn’t they say for Eurocrat EU interest instead, doh!
We know French president Macron raided Melanchon’s computers on orders of Merkel...
He’s not a teenager. He’s an effing man.
The Brits placed this man who hates Trump in their number one most important diplomatic post. The kid did a good deed as far as I’m concerned.
“I believe the emails were linked by the Remain side. Further driving a wedge between the US and the UK only serves their purposes.”
if that’s actually the case, then they miscalculated, because Trump-hating, USA-hating Jeremy Hunt stood up for the UK’s Trump-hating U.S. ambassador who subsequently got run out, thus most likely boosting the chances of pro-USA, pro-Trump Boris Johnson ...
Hes a journalist. He didnt steal the memos. They were given to him. He just passed them on. In the US this would be perfectly legal. I dont know about The law in Great Britain.
Well said. Truth has no owner and is more powerful than those who would suppress it.
Thanks sinsofsolarempirefan. Sir Kim should be stripped of his title by Her Majesty.

He’s already reached the state Churchill was at around 1937, with more reason. I wouldn’t hire him as a gopher.
I Totally AGREE
He is probably a good guy and fighting for Brexit and in the meantime $rewing the hate America Brit Intel.
The article says he’s 19. Was that a misprint?
