Via a Canada=-based Reddit user, :

‘Anyone else find it weird that a company located in Victoria British Columbia [Canada] is so active in elections around the world?

For those who don’t know, this is the company that was under severe investigation due to taking part in the Brexit and Ted Cruz campaigns of yesteryear.

In this latest example AggregateIQ is running a company called “Gript” targeted at Irish voters.

It has tens of thousands of followers in Ireland and purports itself to be a local-to-Ireland company. (registered in Ireland as “GRIPT MEDIA LIMITED”)

I mean could you be more sketchy AggregateIQ?

Oh yeah, they can.

Their privacy page is just a never ending loading screen…’

Anyone?

Why is Victoria-based AggregateIQ fooling around with ANOTHER foreign election? “This Time its Ireland” Edition (Reddit)

    Really ?
    A severe investigation ?
    By who, the tin foil-hatted Twattersphere ?

      The Brexit campaign achieved the majority of votes cast in the referendum. That decision was ratified resoundingly by the most recent election victory of the Tories.
      Ted Cruz is a Republican senator from Texas. He’s not “far-right”. Any insinuation by the author that there is something unseemly by being associated with either of these by virtue of using the same service-provider is bizarre.
      Maybe Ruth Coppinger uses the same broadband provider as me. That doesn’t mean that I’m a raving socialist.

    The privacy page does load, and gives its address as 6 Gardiner Place, an address it shares with The Life Institute and Youth Defence.
