Farage wants debate on Soros collusion in European Parliament
On Tuesday, at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, Brexit champion Nigel Farage openly accused fellow MEPs of colluding with George Soros and his Open Society Foundation.

Farage dismissed the fake news about “Russian collusion” resulting in Brexit and suggested that “we are looking in the wrong place”.
“When we are talking about offshore money, when we are talking about political subversion, when we are talking about collusion, I wonder if we are looking in the wrong place,” Farage noted. “And I say that because George Soros recently gave Open Society, which of course campaigns for freedom of movement of people and supranational structures like the European Union, $18 billion. And his influence here and in Brussels is truly extraordinary.”
He actually called out MEPs sympathetic to Soros by name and accused them of taking money from and lobbying for the billionaire.
“Open Society boast that they had 42 meetings last year with the European Commission, they’ve even published a book of ‘reliable friends’ in the European Parliament and there are 226 names on that list including yours, sir,” Farage pointing to a member.
“If we’re going to have a debate, and talk about full, political and financial transparency, well let’s do it,” he challenged. “So I shall be writing today to all 226 of you, asking some pretty fair questions: Have you ever received funds directly or indirectly from Open Society? How many of their events have you attended? Could you please give us a list of all the representatives including George Soros?”
Farage tweeted: “George Soros has spent billions in the EU to undermine the nation state. This is where the real international political collusion is.”
Soros had meetings with Jean-Claude Juncker and other top EU officials several times over the summer, as Hungary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, hit out at Soros constantly undermining democratically elected governments.
And Eurocrats did not meet Soros once. They actually met him three times, at his insistence, on 27 April, 31 May and 1 June 2017 behind closed doors, with no questions allowed.
According to the answer of a Parliamentary question, they discussed “the proposed Hungarian law on non-governmental organisations, the future of the EU’s economic and monetary union post-Brexit, including Eurozone governance, broader questions around the future of Europe debate, and the refugee crisis”.
Soros fancies himself as “a god”. In his 1987 book ‘The Alchemy of Finance’, Soros wrote: “I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of self-importance – to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god…”
Csaba Dömötör, Hungary’s Secretary of State, has accused the EU of adopting the “Soros plan”, saying: “This has had an impact on the EU bureaucrats that a proposal at EU level that initiates the allocation of immigrants with no ceilings and imposes penalties for countries that do not meet this requirement has been rapidly adopted by 2016.”
In the US, Soros’ name came up 60 times in emails released by WikiLeaks during the presidential campaign.
During the Arab Spring, which saw governments in Egypt, Libya and Syria toppled, Soros was quoted as saying: “A lot of positive things are happening. I see Africa together with the Arab Spring as areas of progress. The Arab Spring was a revolutionary development.”
