George Soros is on record below, as saying:
“The EU is in an existential crisis. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong”.
Yet the billionaire financier still wants Britain to remain in the European Union. To this end he’s launched a campaign for a new Brexit vote within a year.
Of course this has nothing to do with protecting British interests or even the EU’s. This is all about reversing Brexit and securing Soros’s own globalist agenda.
In this regard it’s no coincidence that Russia has blacklisted the billionaire’s Open Society Foundation as a “state security threat“. Or that “anti-Soros legislation” has been proposed in his native Hungary.
Nor are Russia and Hungary alone in condemning the Jewish financier. Even Israel, which normally offers sanctuary to every kind of conman and criminal (providing they are Jewish), has denounced Soros as a “threat“.
You would think that such a track record would be worthy of mention, if only in passing. Yet the following Guardian article doesn’t report any of this. Nor does it mention his alleged role in helping to create the ongoing European migrant crisis.
Instead, the Guardian simply quotes him at length and without question. This is how the corporate media now works. In the guise of reporting “news” the Guardian has provided a man — who as a youngster collaborated in the confiscation of Jewish property during WWII — with a mouthpiece to promote his own agenda.
In the end analysis the EU has become a political and economic sinking ship and Soros wants to ensure that Britian goes down with it. While the corporate media, in this case the Guardian, has conveniently assisted him to do just that. Ed.

Soros-backed campaign to push for new Brexit vote within a year

A campaign to secure a second Brexit referendum within a year and save the UK from “immense damage” is to be launched in days, the philanthropist and financier George Soros has announced.

The billionaire founder of the Open Society Foundation said the prospect of the UK’s prolonged divorce from Brussels could help persuade the British public by a “convincing margin” that EU membership was in their interests.

In a speech on Tuesday ahead of the launch of the Best for Britain campaign – said to have already attracted millions of pounds in donations – Soros suggested to an audience in Paris that changing the minds of Britons would be in keeping with “revolutionary times”.

Best for Britain had already helped to convince parliamentarians to extract from Theresa May a meaningful vote on the final withdrawal deal, he said, and it was time to engage with voters, and Brussels, to pave the way for the UK to stay in the bloc. It is expected to publish its campaign manifesto on 8 June.

Soros, 87, 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. That’s the goal of an initiative called the Best for Britain, which I support.

“Best for Britain fought for and helped to win, a meaningful parliamentary vote which includes the option of not leaving at all. This would be good for Britain but would also render Europe a great service by rescinding Brexit and not creating a hard-to-fill hole in the European budget.

“But the British public must express its support by a convincing margin in order to be taken seriously by Europe. That’s what Best for Britain is aiming for by engaging the electorate. It will publish its manifesto in the next few days.”

Soros said he feared the EU could be heading towards another major financial crisis triggered by austerity and populist political parties intent on blowing the bloc apart.

Sounding the alarm as financial markets fell into turmoil on Tuesday amid a deepening political crisis in Italy, Soros said the EU had lost its way since the 2008 banking crash and required radical transformation in order to survive.

“The EU is in an existential crisis. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong,” he said.

However, Soros said he was convinced it was the ideal time for the EU to reform itself and prepare the ground for the UK staying inside the bloc.

“The economic case for remaining a member of the EU is strong, but it will take time for it to sink in,” Soros said. “During that time the EU needs to transform itself into an association that countries like Britain would want to join, in order to strengthen the political case.
