George Soros lashes out at critics, gives more money to fight Brexit

From The Independent

Billionaire financier George Soros has pledged an additional £100,000 to support efforts to fight Brexit as donations flooded in to a group attempting to mobilise public opinion against withdrawal.

The investor’s move comes after Mr Soros drew anger from Brexiteers last week when it was revealed he was donating £400,000 to the campaign group Best for Britain in an attempt to halt withdrawal from the EU.

The involvement of Mr Soros, who has an estimated net worth of $25.2bn (£18bn), making him the 29th richest person in the world according to Forbes, is understood to have emerged after he entertained six Conservative donors at his house in Chelsea.
