Not Russia. Putin. There's a difference. This isn't about Russian national interests, but Putin's own personal ones. And it isn't just Putin. A number of US billionaires are implicated in what I'd normally call a crazy conspiracy theory. The problem is, this one is supported by mounting evidence. Brexit is about protecting existing financial interests within the UK from an emboldened EU that's determined to shut down money laundering operations and tax evasion. It's about engineering a crash in the UK to enable more British assets to be bought up on the cheap. And it's about opening the door for a desperate Britain to sign a trade deal with the US (via the Trump administration) that sells us out to American corporations. That deal will make TTIP look tame. And the Trade Bill that Liam Fox signed last week means there's basically nothing Parliament can do to stop such a deal happening.
