Opponents of Brexit want to in the course of this year, plenty of demonstrations to keep and also active advertising, as appears from plans of Battle for Britain, the organisation behind the campaign. Battle for Britain tried in the past weeks Conservative lenders to spawn to their commitment to a new referendum to support it. Nick Timothy, until last year the right hand of prime minister Theresa May, heard of the plans and reported about it in the newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

Proponents of a hard line – way with the internal market and the customs union – arguing openly with members of cabinets who think that such a move is too much damage caused.
The involvement of Soros is also salient. He was 25 years ago, responsible for the departure of the British from the European Monetary System, the precursor of the euro. He speculated at the time massively on a decline in the price of the pound. When this happened, and he earned more than 1 billion pounds.
The failure caused the flare up of the always latent anti-EU feelings in the Uk. A portion of the proceeds he uses to the fellow by him damage – he is an opponent of Brexit – repair.
