He fought like hell to block an interview he granted in the first place? An anodyne interview where he doesn't say what people now bullshittingly claim he did?
Soros didn't break the pound. The pound still exists. He made more money than any individual currency arbitrageur because he was the biggest guy around in that sector of the market at the time but the amount he made pales into insignificance compared to the amount that a bunch of British and American banks made making the same bet. I know because I worked for one of the banks.
This is basically an object lesson in how a bunch of unconnected bullshit can be thrown together to smear somebody and how those smears then take on a life of their own.
