Friendly reminder, Brexit is a deliberate attempt by the extremely wealthy to crash the UK's GDP so that the country is forced to sell off its assets on the cheap to keep the economy afloat, and the billionaire backers of Brexit can swoop in and buy up those assets for nothing.

It's one gigantic privatisation scam.

1. Christopher Chandler made his fortune by swooping in and buying up a load of Russian assets for next to nothing after the fall of the USSR.

2. Chandler is also behind the Legatum Institute, one of the right-wing think tanks behind Brexit.

3. He makes bank off of this.
