George Soros defies critics with extra funds to stay in EU

Hungarian-American investor George Soros

The claims came as it emerged Billionaire investor George Soros is to pump a further £100,000 into the anti-Brexit campaign.

Soros's Open Society Foundation has promised to give as much money as it has been gathered through donations from the UK's "Best for Britain" organization that has been blamed that it has been supported by the billionaire.

The criticism against him sparked fierce controversy, as Soros's critics were accused of employing anti-Semitic tropes in saying his donation was part of a "secret plot".

Mr Soros has hit back at what he described as "toxic personal criticism" and dismissed accusations that he was "undermining democracy". In an interview with Britain's Daily Mail, Soros said he loved Britain and "democracy", and expressed the view that Brexit was "a losing bid for the United Kingdom and for Europe". "We, like millions of people, believe that Britain should lead, not leave, Europe", he said. That is what has happened in Britain, ' he wrote.

"Before the referendum Britain was doing better economically than the rest of Europe". But this has now been reversed, with Continental economies powering ahead while Britain lags behind'.

South African President, Zuma, resigns
Media captionWho is Cyril Ramaphosa? "We will hold you accountable and I will see you in 2019 on the ballot box", Mr Maimane said. Zuma was once revered as a hero of that movement, who served as a political prisoner alongside Mandela in his youth.

"At worst they are going to make us fight the whole thing again".

Mr Soros said Brexit had divided the country, turning young against old and that young people had become disillusioned with democracy after older votes "overruled" them in the referendum.

When he was the leader of the UKIP, Farage convinced David Cameron, to schedule the Brexit referendum, and then participated in the European Union exit campaign. The U.K.'s future with the EU is not a done deal, there is still a vote to come and people across the country deserve to know the truth about the options on the table: "one of which is staying and leading in the EU", Best for Britain Chief Executive Eloise Todd said in a statement.

Timothy wrote: 'The objective is to convince MPs to vote against the deal Theresa May negotiates with Brussels, regardless of its content and despite the risk that doing so could mean Britain leaves the European Union with no alternative agreement in place.#.

Cabinet heavyweights including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and International Trade Secretary Liam Fox will follow the Prime Minister as the Government tries to recapture the momentum of Brexit following a fallout with Brussels over negotiations on the transition period.
