The notionally “Conservative” Daniel Hannan MEP has intervened in the Brexit debate in defence of Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros and other pro-mass migration backers such as the Koch brothers.
In the article he states criticism of Soros’s interventions has “unpleasant undertones”, though he concedes this allusion to anti-Semitism is less powerful than it once was given Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s scathing remarks about the billionaire leftist.
And Hannan — a man who has previously toured America attempting to flex his “conservative” credentials — cites the pro-mass migration Koch brothers as rationale for why the right should not be concerned about big money donors:
But Soros is not in favour of free markets — he’s a corporatist, and he would stand side-by-side with the Koch brothers and other billionaires who routinely campaign against national sovereignty and the idea of strong borders.
It’s not the first time Hannan has attempted to pull the wool over the eyes of conservatives or Brexiteers.
