Billionaire George Soros has been criticised by Brexiteers for making large donations to a pro-EU group, adding his name to a growing list of people Leavers love to hate.

Last week reports revealed Soros gave £400,000 to Best For Britain, a group which is campaigning against Brexit, through his Open Society Foundation.

This angered many in favour of Brexit, as of course many claim we need to respect the will of the people and go through with leaving the EU because of the result of the referendum.

But remainers hit back at leave supporters by crowdfunding £110,000 for the campaign group, prompting the billionaire to also donate £100,000.

Soros may be taking most of the heat now, but plenty have been there before him. Scroll through our list of the Brexiteers' bete noires by clicking on the image above.
