Brexit donors: May's deal worse than staying in the EU

By Adam Parsons, business correspondent
Three of the biggest donors to the Leave campaign have told Sky News that they are dismayed by the progress of Brexit and that it would be better for Britain to remain in the European Union than sign up to Theresa May's withdrawal agreement.
The trio, who offered more than €5m in donations for the Leave campaign, each offered scathing criticism of the political process and insisted that Brexit had been "hampered", "squandered" or "obstructed".
Billionaire financier Peter Hargreaves said there would be "no Brexit" because politicians "are cowards".
Investment manager Jeremy Hosking, a major shareholder in Crystal Palace football club, said Mrs May's deal would put the UK "in a straitjacket".
Stuart Wheeler, founder of spreadbetting giant IG Index, said the UK had been reduced to "subservient begging".
Mr Hargreaves, who was behind the biggest personal donation to the Leave campaign, told Sky News that he thinks Brexit will not happen because politicians are "completely out of touch" with the will of the people.
