Nigel Farage is calling for an investigation into George Soros after the billionaire donated £100,000 to pro-EU group Best for Britain in addition to his original contribution of £400,000 to the Europhile campaign organisation.
Ukip former leader Nigel Farage has called for a formal inquiry into billionaire George Soros after he donated a total of £500,000 to anti-Brexit group Best for Britain.
Speaking on Fox News, Mr Farage claimed the media should concentrate on Mr Soros’ Foundation Open Society rather than Russian collusion in western world politics.
He said:“I’ve been saying since 2011 that we all need to wake up to who George Soros is and how big his organisation is.
“His Open Society forum has received $30 billion, not million, billion dollars.
“This is the biggest political organisation the world has ever seen. He has got an agenda and there is nothing illegal about that but he doesn’t believe in what he calls nationalism and I would call nation-state democracy.
“Brexit was about saying we want to govern our own country and make our own laws.
“So far we’ve discovered about a million dollars that he spent on various organisations that want to overturn the Brexit result.
“I suspect that’s the tip of the iceberg. If you really examine the money this man is spending across the whole of Europe and America to push his agenda which is to get rid of the nation-state and to encourage mass migration.
“I’m just saying to people in an era when much of the media is obsessing about Russian collusion, if ever there was an investigation needed it’s into just what exactly has Open Society done over the course of the last few years.”
