Re: They Think That They are Heroes!
I think it's because they all have vested interests in the EU. They Chair many major companies and are Directors of many more, on the Global platform.
Another reason why they are all so rich could also be contributed to the vast amounts they get paid for 'After Dinner Speeches'
Major earns £25,000 for his own opinions ( although he's a 'has been'), but have a look at this article. It gives a bigger idea how much is on offer funded by Hedge Funds etc.
Not being an ardent reader of the Guardian, I know not if this is factual or not, but there is no mention of any Labour politician, which would only be expected and as we know, Blair has made massive amounts from his portfolio .
For one : Osborne’s speeches were given in private, but the fees he received had to be disclosed while he remained an MP. In just one week in November – five months after he was fired by Theresa May – he received £187,474 for speeches at banks and hedge funds in London and New York. Among those payments was £34,109 from BlackRock, the world’s biggest fund manager, which has since hired him to work one day a week, for £650,000 a year. He has also been paid to speak by Wall Street bank JP Morgan, and at the annual meeting of the rich and powerful in Davos in January – where he was pictured socialising with George and Amal Clooney – the former chancellor received £51,829 from HSBC. At HSBC’s annual meeting on Friday, the bank’s chairman, Douglas Flint, was challenged about Osborne’s role, and said the former chancellor had talked about global political issues.
