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.
