British multi-millionaire Mr Julian Dunkerton, founder of the global fashion label Superdry, informed the UK press that he has donated £1m to the campaign for another EU referendum as he feels we “have a genuine chance to turn this around". The People's Vote, a cross-party group including some members of the British Parliament (and backed by liberal billionaire Mr George Soros) wants a public vote on the final Brexit deal.

Mr Dunkerton claims that Superdry "would never have become the global success that it did" should Brexit have happened 20 years earlier as this would have given rise to all kinds of issues with taxes or border controls for his products. He explained that his donation, the largest made so far, would go towards organizing a countrywide opinion poll. Mr Dunkerton: "I will be paying for one of the most detailed polling exercises ever undertaken by a campaign so that more and more people have the confidence to demand the democratic right for their voice to be heard."

Meanwhile former UKIP leader Mr Nigel Farage, seeing the danger of having Brexit overturned grow ever larger, decided to return to politics. On his LBC radio show he declared that he "had a hunch" that if the public got the chance to vote again "then our politicians might just be in for the shock of their lives".

The news comes after more and more companies declared they would be moving offices from London to the European mainland as it remained unclear what the plans of UK Prime Minister Theresa May with regards to Brexit entailed. The UK government is still on course to leave the EU on 29 March next year and has to present the British parliament with a vote on the final deal to be offered to the EU commission in the fall of this year.
