    I don't know more than what's on their website. Why don't you write Nina an email and ask her for more details? Premature assumptions aren't very helpful.

    Rough and ready, and by no means definitive, this is still the longest piece I've seen on Soros.

    These oh so pro democracy NGOs are not at all transparent about their funding origins or political agenda.

    You can dig mud of any organisation or party. I'm more pragmatic. When there is a petition which supports my view, I'm signing it. And when there is an organisation which agrees with me on a subject (e.g. TTIP), I'm trying to work together with them on this issue. That's the way I understand democracy.
