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”.
UK should declare him Satan like Hungary did!
“As a result [of austerity], many young people today regard the EU as an enemy that has deprived them of jobs and a secure and promising future,” [Soros] said.
Them youngns’ are right. And maybe they don’t like losing their identity due to Georgie Porgie pushing open borders.
“In February 2018, The New York Times said of Orbán’s tenure that “Hungary is now considered a democracy in sharp, worrisome decline. Through legislative fiat and force of will, Mr. Orban has transformed the country into a political greenhouse for an odd kind of soft autocracy, combining crony capitalism and far-right rhetoric with a single-party political culture.”
Maybe we should thanks Soros in this case.
If liberal/socialist New York Times is upset about it, that is a clear sign, whatever it is, deserves our support.
So you are all in for autocracy, crony capitalism and single-party? I guess we shouldn’t be surprised.
Hungary is nothing like you describe.
You should give them benefit of doubt, being under the yoke of liberal/socialist oppression for many years!
They yearn to be free from the oppressive liberal mindset like Soros.
Soros want them back into the oppressive Eastern Bloc bondage!
Well according to multiple sources it is. Even you can look it up if you really wanted to. While I do not proclaim to be an expert on the former Easter Bloc, I at least did some research. You are just shooting off your BS again without anything to back you up.
I completely bias with the attitude they do not want to be under the yoke of Eastern Bloc socialist oppression ever again! That is why Christianity has made a huge comeback in Eastern Bloc and Hungary declares Soros the great Satan! Soros wants to return them to the oppression!
Your research seems to miss the basic facts of freedom.
Is Soros a “good person” in your opinion? Your answer will naturally shade the conversation.
I think Soros is evil and bent on subjecting entire populations to his brand of evil for his selfish goals.
Once again you attempt to equate religious zealotry with freedom. Pretty small-minded of you . Looks like the PM of Hungary is doing a fine job of oppression himself. But why should facts bother you?
Since socialism, all the way back to Marx is hostile and oppressive to traditional Christian religuon….yes, exercising religion is an essential componebt of being a free country.
Who wants to be the godless socialist cesspool of England or France right now where simple speech can get you arrested by oppressive leftists!
Like I said earlier, you keep dragging religious zealotry into a discussion on freedom. And I sure don’t want the US to have the kind of authoritarian oppression as practiced by the PM in Hungary.
Only religious zealotry in the story is Soros godless allegiance to the evils of oppressive socialism.
Evils which you seem to want others to embrace. Even those who were massively victimized in the past and now are free.
