Hero of the Hour – George Soros

Billionaire George Soros speaks sense on Brexit and puts his money where his mouth is; others with resources should follow his lead

 

Man of substance George Soros broke the Bank of England and now he looks set to break Brexit.

 

Whilst many would argue his first action to be a bad thing, what he now seeks to achieve would be brilliant for Britain (if indeed he and others pull it off). As Theresa May’s car crash of a government plod on with negotiations with the EU in a cackhanded fashion, today, Soros penned an article for the Mail on Sunday and announced:

 

I consider Brexit a tragic mistake… Brexit is a lose-lose proposition… [It has] split British politics between young and old. Even though I am 87, I think a lot about young people who will live in a future I will never see. People under 35 voted overwhelmingly Remain and it was only over 55 that a majority of voters supported Brexit.”

 

“Old voters have overruled young voters who will have to live with the consequences of Brexit for decades ahead. This is aggravating the disillusionment with democracy among young people. It also raises the prospect that Britain will eventually want to rejoin the EU.”

 

“The doors of Europe may be open in the future, but if Britain leaves now it will never be able to rejoin the EU on the same favourable terms.”

 

“I am a proud supporter of Best For Britain, a group that wants Britain to remain a member of the European Union… Best For Britain seeks to break the logjam by bringing together all the various forces that are united by their aspiration for Britain to remain part of Europe. It has my wholehearted support.”

 

Accused by some of being an “interfering foreigner,” self-described “confirmed Anglophile” Soros has put his money where his mouth is. In donating £400,000 to the anti-Brexit cause, he has drawn a line in the sand and hopefully others will follow his lead. It is time to #ExitBrexit and it is time for the 48% to rise up and be counted.

  1. He has the right to do what he wishes with his money and those criticising him should realise that this is a drop in the ocean of his net worth. It’s like you or I giving away a penny. I hope he gives millions more and I agree – Let’s #ExitBrexit

  2. You are idiots to allow this man to interfere in your country!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Teresa May is MAKING GREAT BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN and you need to back her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone who thinks the EU is anything other a bunch of hoodlums has had too much Castlemaine and should be locked up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Throw all Europrats in the cells and reclaim once Great Britain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chuck out the immigrants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. How dare he try and usurp the will of the people. Send him back to whence he came. Brexit means Brexit and it is time Jacob Rees-Mogg was put in charge of it.

  4. You should stick to writing this kind of drivel instead of unfairly targeting innocent pillars of the community like Viscount St Davids. It is quite unacceptable that you still have not removed the vile things you wrote about him. He and his dear wife and daughter have suffered enough because of you. Screw you Steeples. You do not fool anyone.

    • Pillars of community do not threaten innocent people and invite them to be murdered as the arsehole Viscount St Davids did. I think he should have served 5 years.
      As for the Yomping Yodeller, she should head back to the wheat field and take her weak and legless government with her. The Brexiteers had a paltry majority and now feel they can dictate to the other half. Quite rightly us other, almost half, object to seeing the destruction of the United Kingdom. We need a politician like Anna Soubry to lead the country through this terrible crisis. I don’t like Soros much but I fully agree with him on this occasion.

  5. Die Anti-Brexit-Kampagne ist nur ein Teil von Soros Bemühungen, die Politik in Großbritannien und auf der ganzen Welt zu beeinflussen. Im Dezember sagte eine irische Regierungsaufsichtsbehörde, dass Soros illegal die Bemühungen um eine Änderung der irischen Verfassung für Abtreibungen finanziere. RT berichtet: Soros, der im Vereinigten Königreich für seine Verbindungen zu einem Pfund-Krieg von 1992 berüchtigt ist, ist einer von drei Gebern, die die Kampagne „Best for Britain“ unterstützen, die Abgeordnete dazu auffordert, ein zweites Referendum oder Wahlen anzusetzen nach einem Strategiepapier, das aus einem Treffen der Gruppe bekannt wurde, über ein endgültiges Brexit-Abkommen abzustimmen. The Telegraph berichtet, dass Soros auch plant, wichtige Tory-Spender zu rekrutieren, um Ministerpräsident Theresa May Brexit Pläne zu untergraben.
