Now heres a really odd thing Ive never noticed before. Stuart Rose. The chair of the Remain camp in the 2016 referendum. Was one of the founders of eurosceptic Tufton Street outfit Business For Britain en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_…
I mean how the fuck did that happen ?
He was batting for both sides .
@Otto_English Youre usually light years ahead , did you know this one ?
Their domain name has expired. Like they were never there
Stuart is a big cheese in Bridgepoint Capital Management which in Dec 17 reduced its exposure to brexit.
Wise.

He's also a big cheese in HSBC . Doesnt have much to say in the Lords . Except on money laundering it seems hansard.parliament.uk/search/MemberC…
Over to you @nw_nicholas #HSBC
An odd exchange here file under "People knew what they were voting for"

Im lost already

@Otto_English @MikeH_PR
Global Vision are eurosceptic according to wiki
Britain In Europe is a bit generic but doesnt sound eurosceptic
They both operate out of the same address in Redditch
I know citing wikipedia is never a good thing but...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britain_i…
But that was wound up in 2005
Theres an academic think tank called Britain In Europe . I tend to look at names . Only one I recognise here is Will Self brineurope.com/experts
I think well move on
One other thing. The Britain In Europe Campaign that was wound up in 2005 had Dyson as a backer. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britain_i…
Stuart Rose is worth $51m with homes in London and Suffolk. Nice

An interview with Stuart Rose.
"...wine played a key role in his career"

Now you tell us
cityam.com/253314/lord-st…
These words "At least if you stand up for what you believe in, you won’t live a life of regret for not speaking out."

Yes but what does/did Stuart Rose believe in ?
Heres Stuart Rose at @CompaniesHouse . Only the one directorship it seems. beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/6zhtx…
That seems to be at odds with his H of L profile which lists eight. But Im sure theres an explanation
parliament.uk/biographies/lo…
Stuart Rose says he feels British “first and foremost”, but that he has “never not felt European”.

“I’m a businessman. I’m not a politician. I’m not remotely a politician.”

Who appointed Stuart Rose to do this job ???
Heres an article announcing his appointment theguardian.com/politics/2015/…
My view is Rose's appointment was more cock up than conspiracy . But its the jolly posh boys narrative all over again. What a fucking state this country has got itself into.
And why are @Open_Britain not doing or saying anything? At such a crucial time in British politics.
I mean all this effort going into a people's vote and nothing from @Open_Britain to steer towards soft brexit. Open Britain is the inheritor of Stuart Roses Britain Stronger in Europe campaign.
Leaving the EU or staying in or rejoining is a complex decision. Needs to be done calmly and with expertise. The electorate will give a visceral answer to the question.
In the run up to the referendum Richard Dawkins made that above point far better than I could .
Should add I think it's bloody great 700k got on the streets for #PeoplesVote . This movement will build.
