A New Zealand-born backer of a think tank advocating a hard Brexit has obtained an EU passport through Malta, it has been reported.

Christopher Chandler, founder of Legatum, which backs leaving the single market and the customs union, has become a citizen of the Mediterranean island.

Critics branded the move double standards as the passport would give him the right to live and work in any European country. A hard Brexit is expected to leave Britons without that same privilege.

Under Malta’s scheme, individuals can obtain Maltese passports in return for a €650,000 contribution to the national development fund and the purchase or lease of property, as well as well as investments of at least €150,000 in stocks and bonds. Family members can be added for an additional fee of €25,000 to €50,000 per person. The main applicant for the citizenship must have legal residence status in Malta for a minimum period of one year.


Really sticking it to the elites, this Brexit. People are paying hundreds of thousands of Euros for something we're throwing away.

Well then it must be true.

So Brexit isn't happening anymore because May made a deal with the EU?

May has spent the last few months fighting her party to hammer out a settlement that the EU has already said they’re going to reject. No-one knows what the fuck is going to happen, but there are some extremely dodgy authoritarians salivating over the prospect of shoeting sterling and creaming the top of bribes for businesses to stay in what will be a non-EU very shortly.
