A day after it was announced that Hungarian billionaire George Soros was to support a new campaign to overturn the Brexit referendum vote and keep Britain in the EU, news that US billionaire Soros donated £400k to an anti-Brexit group during the campaign came on the day that Google offshoot YouTube said they found no evidence of Russian interference in Brexit.
So let's sum up: "Unproven Russian involvement in Brexit – terrible! Impose more sanctions on Moscow! A £400k check from a globalist billionaire and world government advocate for an anti-Brexit campaigning group – that’s no problem; it’s helping our democracy!"
You don’t have to own a brand new £999 state-of-the art Hypocrisy Detector from Harrods, to pick up on the double standards. Just having a few functioning brain cells and thinking for yourself will do. For months in the UK we’ve been bombarded with Establishment-approved conspiracy theories – peddled in all the ’best’ newspapers – that Russia somehow ‘fixed’ Brexit. Getting Britain to leave the EU was all part of a cunning plot by Vladimir Putin, aka Dr. Evil, to weaken Europe and the ‘free world.’
There is a move among the super - rich to defy the will of the people and impose their will, from their homes in tax havens well outside the EU it seems. Part of the plan is to blame Russia, just as the US Democrats first tried to stop Trump winning the Presidency, then to get him removed from office by claiming collusion with Russia, so the Soros plan for a federal Europe including the UK inludes blaming Russia for rigging the referendum vote. Even West End musical impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber has been taken in by it. "By quitting Europe, I fear that we are hastening Putin’s dream of the break-up of the EU – and with it, potentially, western civilisation," the noble Lord declared in July. Never mind Andy, when you find yourself "all alone in the moonlight, you can smile at the old days" when you still had your sanity.
As yet, no matter which side of The Atlantic we are on, we don’t have a single shred of evidence to support Russian involvement in trying to influence U.S. or British elections, not one statement from Putin or other senior Kremlin figures saying that they actually supported Brexit or Donald Trump. Instead we have seen a lot of evidence that the Democrats tried (and failed) to cheat in order to stop Trump and the only interference in the Brexit vote came from a left wing capitalist billionaire.
And never mind that RT and Sputnik, which we are repeatedly told are “propaganda arms of the Russian government,” ran articles by pro- and anti-Brexit writers. The same people who told us Iraq had WMDs in 2003 were absolutely sure it was those dastardly Russkies who had got Britain to vote ‘leave.’ The irony is of course that there was significant
Even the best comedy writers could not make up this stuff, it's crazier than Mel Brooks or The Marx Bros at their very best.
