EXPOSED: Secret Corporate Plan To Pump £50m Into New Anti-Brexit Centrist Party
Secret plans by big businessmen to fund a new centrist party have been uncovered this morning in the Guardian, and are reported to have been in motion for over a year.
Led by rich businessmen, philanthropists and former politicians, the party claims to take policy ideas from both the left and the right in a bid to unite the nation.
The party, which will be backed by the ‘One Movement’ project, is being planned by wealthy businessmen who are fed up with the polarisation in politics and particularly the divisions caused by Brexit.
The One Movement project, solely owned by a multi-millionaire former Labour donor – Simon Franks – is said to have had employees working on the party for over a year and potentially as far back as the end of 2016.
However, the backers are not a united front; it appears that while some want One Movement to primarily be a new, anti-Brexit political party whereas others would rather it focusses more on community politics at a local level.
Rumours suggest that the new party has the support of key figures from across the political spectrum, who are likely to include well-known public figures like former PM Tony Blair and former Deputy PM Nick Clegg, who have both expressed clear discontent with the shape of Britain’s political parties.
It has even been suggested that a number of Brexiteers are lined up to back the new party, creating doubts over how pro-EU the party will be.
The party will reportedly not be attempting to persuade MPs to defect as part of its launch but will be attempting to tempt over MPs who it deems to fit its non-partisan approach.
