A leaked strategy document reveals that billionaire financier George Soros is one of three senior figures tied to a Remain group called "Best for Britain," which is "secretly" pushing for a second referendum on Brexit to keep Britain in the EU, the Telegraph reports.
Stephen Peel, one of the organizers of the movement who was in attendance, has previously spoken of his desire for the UK to remain in the EU, while Mr. Soros said last year that Brexit was a "lose-lose proposition." Lord Malloch-Brown, another organizer, said last year: “We need to sway public opinion nationally so that there is a majority to remain at the time of the vote in Parliament.”
Peel has been a director of the UK-EU Open Policy since it was established in October 2016, while Lord Malloch-Brown joined 13 months later - sitting on Best for Britain's board.
The leaked "battle plan" concludes that the Best for Britain movement must "win the meaningful vote that Mrs May has promised on her Brexit deal in October," adding that if she loses, it is "likely to trigger a new referendum, or election."
“We must prevail decisively so reassuring Europe that our return will be permanent,” it states.
