Billionaire George Soros vows to spend five years fighting for a second EU referendum in bid to overturn Brexit

The Sun - Brexit by Hugo Gye 
GEORGE Soros’ fight to stop Brexit will go on for another FIVE YEARS, the tycoon hinted today as he called for a second EU referendum.
The hedge fund billionaire claimed Brexit would be “immensely damaging” for both Britain and the EU and boasted about funding the campaign to overturn it.

But he warned Brussels that the EU must radically reform if leaders want to persuade Brits to change their minds.
Mr Soros, 87, said during a speech in Paris that Europe is in an “existential crisis” because of Brexit, refugees and austerity.
He described how he’d donated £400,000 to Best for Britain, a campaign group dedicated to holding a second referendum on the EU.
The tycoon said: “Brexit is an immensely damaging process, harmful to both sides.

“Divorce will be a long process, probably taking more than five years. Five years is an eternity in politics, especially in revolutionary times like the present.
“Ultimately, it’s up to the British people to decide what they want to do. It would be better however if they came to a decision sooner rather than later.”
He added that a second referendum “would also render Europe a great service by rescinding Brexit and not creating a hard-to-fill hole in the European budget”.
Mr Soros continued: “The British public must

express its support by a convincing margin in order to be taken seriously by Europe.
“The economic case for remaining a member of the EU is strong, but it will take time for it to sink in.”
But he added that if the EU is serious about overturning Brexit, it should reform to become more flexible.

Mr Soros demanded a “multi-track Europe” that recognises different countries want different levels of integration.
Brexit backers today hit out at his comments and said a second referendum would defy the will of the British people.
Tory MP Andrea Jenkyns said: “George Soros wants to overturn the largest democratic mandate in British electoral history, but in the same breath admits the EU is in an ‘existential crisis’ and needs to change to convince the UK to rejoin.
“A second referendum would not only damage our negotiating position, but would also send a dangerous signal that Parliament is seeking to ignore the votes of 17.4million people.”
Mr Soros, a Hungarian-American who is the world’s richest hedge fund manager, has spent millions on political causes around the world.
He has been accused of using his cash to defy democracy – but insists he is only trying to promote freedom and stability.
After receiving his donation, Best for Britain has launched a national poster campaign and is lobbying MPs directly to support a re-run of the 2016 vote.

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
