An FOI request has revealed James Dyson financed the construction of a water reservoir on his farm with EU funding.
The billionaire arch Brexiteer took money from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) to pay for the development, despite campaigning for Britain to leave the union.
The farm, dubbed Beeswax Dyson in Lincolnshire, has received £4.2 million of European subsidies between 2016 and 2017.
Susan Elan Jones MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said that Dyson was the “worst sort of pro-Brexit establishment hypocrite” after the findings were revealed.
The revelations came shortly after it was revealed that Dyson’s head office is to be switched from the UK to Singapore.
Dyson also announced it will build its first electric car in Singapore in a blow to UK manufacturing.
