Power, Profit and Populism: The Battle for Hard Brexit (2021)
1h 2m | English | Tom Costello
Brexit was presented as a populist revolution against the elite. But in the years since the referendum, a group of men deep in the heart of the British establishment have been carrying out a coup of a different kind – using Brexit to try and turn Britain into a low-tax, low regulation, high finance utopia.
This revolution is funded by dark money – cash from unknown sources – which has been flooding into the British political system through mysterious front groups, opaque offshore firms, clandestine digital campaigns and corporate lobbyists in disguise.
Today dark money and shadowy influence operations continue to push an agenda that is anything but popular, and is deeply undemocratic. In this film, we follow the dark money trails to find out: who are the men who bought Brexit, and what is their vision for Britain’s future?
