Billionaire George Soros has been meddling in another European nation’s politics – this time in the United Kingdom’s affairs.
The “destructive” investor was told to “stay out of British politics” after admitting to providing 700,000 GBP (250,000,000 HUF) worth of grants for pro-EU groups.
Several furious Brexit backers turned on Soros when he owned up to funding anti-Brexit groups to secure a second EU Referendum.
According to reports, Soros has given 400,000 GBP (140,000,000 HUF) to the ‘Best for Britain’ organization to fund a nationwide anti-Brexit campaign.
Lord Lamont, a former politician in the UK who was chancellor when Soros helped plunge the nation into a recession 25 years ago, said he should stay out of politics.
“It seems very perverse and odd for the Soros foundation, which exists to promote democracy, to seek to undermine democracy in this way,” he said. “George Soros is a brilliant financier, but he should stick to finance and stay out of British politics.”
