LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May’s government will not hold a second referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union, her spokesman said on Thursday after the billionaire George Soros donated money to stop Brexit.

“There are many political and campaign groups in this country, that’s entirely right and as you would expect in a democracy,” the spokesman told reporters.

“The prime minister’s position on this matter is clear, the country voted to leave the European Union, that’s what we are going to deliver and there won’t be a second referendum.”

    “The prime minister’s position on this matter is clear, the country voted to leave the European Union, that’s what we are going to deliver and there won’t be a second referendum.” So a PM Office spokesman.

    We should hope. May and her minions have spent more than a year and a half trying to negate Brexit and still refer to the rump version as genuine Brexit. As for Dirty George, he has finally been outed, at least in part. The half million or so dollars he’s spent so far is only the visible part that has been found. It’s difficult to hide the money he uses for his public influence operations or the front companies that conduct them. However, the UK is the Land of Brown Envelopes, and although Brits can be bought, they don’t come cheap. We may suspect he has paid millions to the right movers and shakers in high circles of the unhappy little island.
