Brexit Betrayal: Fashion Tycoon Seeks Second EU Referendum

In an attempt to supercede the will of the British people, a tycoon has poured a fortune into a campaign to force a second EU referendum.

Julian Dunkerton, whose streetwear brand Superdry is known worldwide, donated over a million pounds to the "People's Vote" campaign, which is backed by several European Union groups.

"Increasingly, the public knows that Brexit is going to be a disaster, Dunkerton wrote in an op-ed for The Sunday Times. "Maybe they just need to be given that little bit of hope that comes when they see how opinion is moving."

"There is no vision for Brexit and the politicians have made a mess of it," he added.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's idea of a "soft Brexit" has indeed muddied the waters of Brexit negotiations, which has drawn criticism from the likes of former UKIP leader Nigel Farage and even compelled Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to resign.

Farage has even re-entered the campaign trail in Britain to challenge May's leadership role in Brexit negotations.

"I can see that in the autumn there's going to be a big campaign," he told Sky News.

"What they will try to do is to suspend Article 50, to delay the date on which we're actually supposed to leave. It's time we fought back."

"We're sick to death of being sold out," he added. "It's time we had our voice again and that is what this campaign intends to do."
