Robert Mercer’s Network of Interference

Section:

Matthew Steeples suggests it is not only Russia that Britain must fear, it is the interference of the likes of billionaires such as Robert Mercer

Whilst the Russia report has revealed much about how Putin and his cronies have interfered in British politics, it must also be remembered that there is another powerful danger subverting democracy both here and in the US: the secretive billionaire Robert Mercer.

 

A man with octopus like tentacles and fingers in a multitude of pies, computer scientist Mercer funded Cambridge Analytica’s work on the Brexit campaign and was the biggest single donor in the 2016 US presidential race.

 

Aside from being one of the owners of the far-right Breitbart News Network, Mercer is known to have links with The Taxpayers’ Alliance – whose founder, Matthew Elliott, also happens to be the man whom set up Conservative Friends of Russia. The TPA, it must be remembered, is not actually the voice of the British taxpayer, but is, in fact instead a private company limited by guarantee that lobbies for secretive vested interests.

 

As well as having close associations with such people as Arron Banks, Nigel Farage and Donald Trump, here is someone with a determination to deny climate change and someone who once allegedly suggested that “white racists no longer exist in the US.” As Carole Cadwalladr pointed out of him in February 2017, Mercer is an expert in algorithms and big data also and his clear desire is to “remake parts of the media landscape.”

 

Beneath it all, kingmaker Robert Mercer has an agenda that is focused on the interests of no one but himself. He deserves to be called out as nothing but a force for bad and Britain would be all the better if he disinvolved himself from our affairs.
