A group funded by Hungarian billionaire George Soros is trying to take David Davis to court.
Best for Britain, funded by Soros and a string of other anti-Brexiters, claims that the Brexit Secretary, is legally bound to offer a second vote on the agreed deal with the EU.
In a statement the group said:
“We’re teaming up with our friends at ‘Tech for UK’ and ‘Our Future, Our Choice’ to take David Davis to court, because the Government is trying to remove a law that embeds the right to a meaningful vote, and also a possible public vote, on the terms of the Brexit deal.
We already have the rights to these and they are trying to remove them.
And we need your support to stop this.
According to the 2011 European Union Act, if we transfer control – as outlined in the Government’s proposed transition deal – then the decision over this change should rest in the hands of the people. This case is about ensuring our Government follows our laws, as they currently stand.”
Soros and Brexit
Soros hit the headlines in February after committing to do ‘whatever it took’ to overturn Brexit.
How Mainstream covered the original story…
George Soros, 87, has moved to defy his critics over his £400,000 donation to the pro-EU campaign group Best for Britain by pledging an additional £100,000 to support efforts to fight Brexit.
The billionaire investor’s Open Society Foundation (OSF) is set to match a crowdfunding campaign set up in the wake of attacks on Soros, which has already raised more than £50,000 since his support was revealed on Wednesday last week.
“I am happy to take the fight to those who have tried to use a smear campaign, not arguments, to prop up their failing case.”
