George Soros was today confirmed to be backing Gina Miller’s “Best For Britain” campaign to reverse Brexit, according to a strategy document leaked to the Daily Telegraph. The investor, famously known as the man who “broke the Bank of England” in the early 1990s, has donated £400,000 to the movement through his Open Society Foundation.
The investor is one of several senior figures linked to the Best For Britain group, who plan to launch a national advertising campaign later this month, in an attempt to turn the public against Brexit. It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election.
Soros had invited guests to his home in Chelsea at the end of January to listen to a pitch to launch a campaign to convince the British people to overturn their vote to leave the European Union. The 87-year-old host became famous for making more than a billion pounds betting against the pound before Black Wednesday, in 1992. The Hungarian-born businessman has made himself a persona non grata to governments across Eastern Europe, and has been accused of having a hand in the fall of several governments.
Also at the launch dinner were Stephen Peel, a businessman and former Olympic rower who is also said to be putting money into the new campaign and is on the board of Best For Britain, Lord Malloch-Brown, the former Labour minister and chairman of Best For Britain, and Sir Martin Sorrell, the chief executive of advertising firm WPP. However, the guests at the dinner left without donating any money to the campaign.
The key objective is to convince MPs to vote against the deal Theresa May negotiates with Brussels, regardless of its content. Malloch-Brown and his backers believe that if Parliament rejects the Brexit deal when it comes to a parliamentary vote in October, the Government will fall, and Brexit can then be stopped. He was quoted as saying last month: “If we can achieve that, I think it will trigger either an election or a referendum, or a change of government without an election, or at least a change of prime minister.”
A group of billionaires colluding to stop Brexit only affirms what ordinary voters already suspected, that the EU exists to promote the interests of the wealthy elite. For Remoaners to be talking about triggering a change of government without an election is particularly sinister.
How ironic of US Democrats, and Remoaners, to be complaining about foreign interference in the democratic process of sovereign states when Soros is doing exactly that. Young people (who will be the main targets of the upcoming Best For Britain advertising campaign) need to realise that Soros and his cronies are not doing this to save you, they are doing this to make themselves even richer – these people don’t give a damn about freedom, democracy or ordinary citizens.
