18. "Brexit Party" beat the Tories in recent Euro elections

The Brexit/Tory split is already well along.
Johnson should know this.

What I donít understand: what do Johnson and Rees-Mogg and Murdoch and the Barclays get out of Brexit??

In the US itís clear to me what Trump and the Koches and Adelson and Murdoch get out of Republican plutocracy: tax cuts and deregulation. And the immigration stuff is just a way to get votes for that agenda.

But how does Brexit itself help UK Tory billionaires? Or is it just a way to get votes for reactionary oligarchs? (If so, then youíd think it doesnít actually need to happen, just always be on the horizon.)
