One of the best kept "secrets" of the campaigns surrounding Brexit is that nearly all the Remain campaigns are being run by a single organisation: the European Movement. British broadcasters have covered the Remain referendum campaign as if it were being run by "Britain Stronger In Europe" but it was set up by the European Movement (see Funding of StrongerIn) and have covered the "PeoplesVote" campaign as if it were a separate organisation but it operates from the European Movement Offices in Millbank (see Shared Headquarters). Even organisations such as Scientists for the EU and FBPE are European Movement based.This raises two questions: why the secrecy and who is paying? These are usually one question because secrecy in politics is nearly always about hiding who is paying.The

The European Movement was reliant upon US funding until 1954 when Jozef Retinger, the Honorary Secretary General of the European Movement, founded the Bilderberg Group to provide funds from the largest corporations and banks in the West. In many ways the Bilderberg Group was as contentious as the USA as a source of funding because it would repel left wing supporters of European Union. Retinger avoided this PR problem by constituting Bilderberg so that its meetings were secret and its actions deniable:
"We decided, however, that none of the new ideas and initiatives would be developed by the group, but that they should be passed on to some persons or organization who could further develop them." (The Bilderberg Group by J. Retinger).

The Bilderberg Group is immensely powerful and nowadays controls the European Movement although this will be strenuously denied by all concerned. However, the fact that Bilderberg members such as George Soros and the giant WPP advertising group pay for "PeoplesVote" shows that the two are connected - deniably of course.

It is very difficult to tackle the problem of the Bilderberg Group. In 1976 C. Gordon Tether, who wrote the Lombard Column for the Financial Times, confronted Bilderberg and as a result was sacked and never worked again for a national newspaper. Given that the Financial Times, Economist and even the BBC attend Bilderberg Meetings it is not surprising that broadcasters refuse to criticise the Group and smear any detractors as conspiracy theorists. Everyone should be clear, there is no conspiracy - the Bilderberg Group was set up openly to further European Union - and there is no theory because the furthering of European Union is what the Bilderberg Group does.
The European Movement was the power behind "Remain" in the EU Referendum in the UK and are now running "PeoplesVote", it is a Pan-European organisation that is financed by the Bilderberg Group. Its most powerful UK Bilderberg Member is Martin Sorrel who uses his role as CEO of WPP, the largest advertising agency in the world, to control the UK commercial media, especially the Broadcast Media. WPP has inserted their stooge, Roland Rudd (Amber Rudd's brother) on the board of Open Britain Ltd which controls European Movement funding in the UK.
Amber Rudd was sent to the latest Bilderberg meeting in Turin on 7th-10th June 2018 (see Bilderberg Participants. Shortly after this meeting a deputation of Bilderbergers was dispatched to persuade the UK Government to adopt the Chequers Deal instead of Canada Plus.
The European Movement has considerable experience of fighting for, and getting, second referendums. The technique is to make out that the opposition were ill-informed, to smear prominent opponents so that their campaign and funding looks illegal and to spread Project Fear disinformation in their media to cow the population into submission. Here is an analysis of the European Movement strategy in the Irish Second Referendums:

The problem for the British electorate is that no-one is telling us about the fact that it is the European Movement and their Bilderberg Group that is backing Remain. This is a national scandal. The Russians are not even actively backing Leave but the UK corporate media are all over the alleged possibilities whereas the European Movement actually runs Remain and set up the Bilderberg Group but the corporate media are utterly silent.
