George Soros backs campaign to reverse Brexit

It is revealed today that since the general election, billionaire investor George Soros has donated £400,000 in support of Remain group Best of Britain through his Open Society Foundation.  Best of Britain’s chairman, former government minister and deputy UN secretary general, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown confirmed Mr Soros was an important and valued donor to the campaign but his funding is only one among many sources.  “We work with campaigners, businesses, unions, politicians and community groups to make sure everyone has a strong campaigning voice” Malloch-Brown said, “Our small donors have collectively contributed more.”

Malloch-Brown plans to launch a major campaign this month to persuade the public and MPs to vote against the final Brexit deal in order to trigger another referendum or general election.  “We think the British people deserve a final say on the Brexit deal and believe the country has been led down a dangerous false turn. This is a democratic and patriotic effort to recover our future and we welcome support for our efforts from many quarters. We believe we speak for a democratic majority in a country now facing up to the consequences of a Brexit negotiation that has been captured by a handful of hardliners.”
