  • Feb.10.2018: George Soros is acting against the ‘spirit of the law’ with his plans to sabotage Brexit, says former chancellor Lord Lamont. Foreign donors were banned from funding sides during referendum campaign. Lamont argues that international donors like George Soros should 'keep away', at least while the deal that will implement Britain’s Brexit decision is worked out. And he also criticised Tory MPs for supporting a pro-EU parliamentary group. The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on EU Relations is co-chaired by Remain backer Anna Soubry and its aims have been supported by other MPs. The APPG has been supported to the tune of up to £21,000 by Best for Britain, a group which is seeking a second referendum or a general election. The group admits its campaign for a new referendum could cause Theresa May's govt to fall. Best of Britain has, in turn, been pledged almost £400,000 from Mr Soros. Mr Soros has pledged a total of more than £700,000 to groups working to water down or block Brexit. (See Grassroots Coordinating Group re the APPG.) Daily Mail Online, Daniel Martin
