The Labour party is set to become a key battlefield in remainers attempts to keep the UK within the EU.
It was revealed this morning that Best for Britain, the campaign to overturn Brexit, has received over six million pounds from private donors, and intends on using the next six months to ‘change the course of history.’
According to the Telegraph:
”Backed by billionaire financier George Soros, Best for Britain aims to spend nearly £6million on the campaign, according to the documents.
They allegedly reveal that the group will contradict whatever final agreement Theresa May strikes with Brussels – arguing it is ‘not what we voted for.”
The plans include using trade unions to change Labour’s stance on Brexit.
It will also see an advertising blitz, social media, a speaking tour by leading Labour Remainers and local campaigning.
The documents suggest that the party is ready to reject whatever terms are agreed, and back the UK remaining within the EU.
The 26-page-document claims:
- Best for Britain will claim leaving the EU will put national security at risk;
- Remain activists will blame Brexit for funding cuts at local councils;
- They will also claim Leave voters were rejecting Westminster and not Brussels
It emerged in February that Best for Britain had accepted a £400,000 donation from Mr Soros, the Hungarian-born financier who bet against sterling on Black Wednesday in 1992 – earning him one billion dollars.
We’ve smashed our £10,000 target!
Every pound you donate goes towards another advert, another poll, another grassroots stall.

He then promised £100,000 more, matching a crowdfunding push, and later gave another £300,000.
