Superdry boss throws £1 million into anti-Brexit campaign

THE multimillionaire co-founder of fashion label Superdry is donating £1 million to the anti-Brexit People’s Vote campaign.

Julian Dunkerton says his business would not have been a success outside the EU and believes “we have a genuine chance to turn this around.”

The People’s Vote campaign argues that voters in 2016’s referendum on EU membership did not know what the consequences of leaving the EU would be, and therefore when a final “deal” is struck with Brussels the country should vote again.

Left Leave campaign Lexit convener Alex Gordon told the Morning Star the donation was “confirmation the so-called People’s Vote campaign is bankrolled by business in the interests of keeping access to cheap labour and fat profits.

“The only people’s vote we need is a general election.”

Mr Dunkerton’s intervention comes a day after former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said he would hit the streets again to campaign against Theresa May’s Brexit approach with the Leave Means Leave organisation.
