Billionaire Richard Branson has pledged to help fund a campaign to block Britain’s departure from the European Union, The Independent newspaper reported on Monday, citing a memo by Alan Milburn, a cabinet minister in Tony Blair’s Labour government.

The campaign will seek a second referendum on the terms of Britain’s divorce from the EU and to build support for remaining in the bloc, the paper said.

A million pounds ($1.25 million) of funding has already been pledged to the campaign, which claims the support of former cabinet ministers from the Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat Parties, the paper said.

Virgin Group is to help bankroll a campaign set up in secret by Blairite former ministers and advisers to derail Brexit, The Independent can reveal.

An email seen by The Independent highlights the scale of backing the group has already secured. It shows the campaign has been months in the planning and claims “substantial progress” has already been made, including the identification of “an excellent potential CEO”. The memo was written by Alan Milburn, who was one of Tony Blair’s closest cabinet allies.

It reveals the group has heavy financial, political and corporate backing and is receiving advice and support from a host of high-level business and communications organisations.

High-profile MPs including former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Labour MP Chuka Umunna are believed to have had contact with the group, as have celebrities such as Bob Geldof.

Freuds, a leading public relations agency that was founded by Matthew Freud, a close friend of both Mr Blair and David Cameron, is understood to have been commissioned to manage the strategy and marketing of the campaign.

The email says: “We have been beavering away over the last few months to get a Europe campaign up and running. I’m pleased to say that substantial progress has been made.”

“I have met the Freuds team several times and we are making good progress.

“I have been in discussions with an excellent potential CEO to lead the campaign.

Blairite millionaires, politicians and media tycoons are reportedly plotting to stop Brexit in its tracks, a leaked memo suggests. Virgin Group chief Sir Richard Branson is apparently bankrolling the scheme.

A memo leaked to the Independent suggests the plot has been underway for months, with financial backing secured and a potential CEO for the group identified.

The newspaper claims the information was found in an email penned by Tony Blair’s former health secretary and right-hand man Alan Milburn.

The document also reveals how Virgin made at least £25,000 (US$30,000) available to the as yet unnamed group, while PR firm Freuds is working on the campaign’s marketing.

Freuds hit the front pages earlier this year when allegations it had been orchestrating a “coup” against serving Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn came to the fore.

A string of high-profile politicians, including one-time Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Labour backbencher Chuka Umunna, have been linked to the campaign. Millionaire musician-turned-philanthropist Bob Geldof is also meant to be involved.

“We have been beavering away over the last few months to get a Europe campaign up and running. I’m pleased to say that substantial progress has been made,” the memo reads.

“I have met the Freuds team several times and we are making good progress. I have been in discussions with an excellent potential CEO to lead the campaign.

“Virgin … are keen to help. Since we last spoke [they] have offered a further £25k, plus bigger office space, help with legal advice and a possible secondment.”

  2. Tony Blair: Brexit could be stopped if Britons change their minds

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/nov/24/tony-blair-brexit-could-be-stopped-if-britons-change-their-minds

    Brexit could be halted if the British people decided the costs of leaving the EU greatly outweighed any benefits, Tony Blair has said in an interview marking his self-proclaimed return to political activity.

    While stressing he was not planning a return to frontline politics – “there’s just too much hostility” – Blair told the New Statesman he wanted to “create the space for a political debate about where modern western democracies go and where the progressive forces particularly find their place”.

    • from seekers quote above, “Brexit could be halted if the British people decided the costs of leaving the EU greatly outweighed any benefits… Blair told the New Statesman he wanted to ‘create the space for a political debate…'”

      I am sure the propaganda in Britain is feeding the British peoples’ judgment to outweigh the information they had in order to make the Brexit decision. They will just pile up their low-side (despair) and make the benefit of the EU attractive. I do not have the details on how Brexit or not-Brexit works. I understand there was a referendum. It was already decided. Blair says there is a debate. Hypothetically then the debate never ends and it could go back and forth from day to day by such referendum’s. The referendum is always there. The decision is never final or at least decided upon for a number of years. It is that fickle. Like a stubborn child that is never satisfied.
