A new report by pro-Brexit think tank Facts4EU highlighted the significant resources the Remain movement has at its disposal – including more than £20,000 raised for the march alone, according to its GoFundMe website. Moreover, publicly available figures reveal George Soros’ Open Society Foundations donated a total of £3,021,689 between 2016 and 2019.

The George Soros cash comprises:

  • Best for Britain: £400,000 (2017), £1,087,000 (2018), £1,213,689 (2019)
  • European Movement: £100,000 (2017), £100,000 (2018)
  • Scientists for EU: £35,000 (2017)
  • Bright Blue: £86,000 (2016)

However, Facts4EU’s report points out no data is available for monies raised post-2019, suggesting even the £3million figure is therefore “just the tip of the iceberg”.

It adds: “Whilst most of the marchers will be from the extremist fringe, this march should nevertheless send a warning to all Brexiteers – the fight is not yet over.

“We may well be looking at the rump of the Remain movement but it’s very well-funded and very active on social media and in its political campaigning. And it’s clearly on the rise.”

Speakers at the march include “Stop Brexit!” man Steve Bray, Femi Oluwole, founder of Our Future Our Choice, “EU Supergirl” Madeleina Kay and arch-Remainer Lord Andrew Adonis, described as a “former Social Democratic party member, then a Lib Dem member, then a Labour party member” who was “never once elected to Parliament”.

Leigh Evans, Facts4EU’s chairman, commented: “One more unto the breach, dear friends, once more…

“Brexit is not ‘done’, sadly. Not only do we have to ensure that the United Kingdom is reunited and that all of it is removed from the yoke of EU laws, we must also ensure that all the dividends from being an independent country again are realised as quickly as possible.”

He added: “All those who voted Leave over six years ago have a right to expect the full delivery of Brexit.

“It’s something called ‘democracy’ – a concept that Rejoiners would do well to acquaint themselves with.

“It might also help if they bothered to acquaint themselves with some official facts.”

Mr Evans also cited a conversation with John Redwood about Brexit, during which he said the Tory MP for Wokingham told him: “Well, we’ve scarcely started, have we?

“I mean, it’s still very disappointing. It’s great news that we finally got out, despite Parliament’s worst efforts to thwart the will of the British people.

“We got out with a deal, which Boris Johnson had substantially revised from Theresa May.

“But it still left us under some elements of EU control, which I find deeply disappointing.”
