    He has done a great job

    Please check if the sentence is correct or should be improved.

    "He has done a great job by leading the Brexit campaign which has helped (to) cause some damage to the EU, a socialist organization that oppresses hundreds of millions of freedom-loving people all over the place in Europe."

    Correct in what way? You didn't specify "factually" or "grammatically".

    Re: He has done a great job

    I think I'd remove 'the place' and just say "all over Europe". Otherwise it's kind of contradictory - 'all over the place', but then you immediately limit it to " in Europe".

    I think I'd streamline it a bit as well.

    He has done a great job by leading the Brexit campaign which has helped (to) cause some damage to the EU, a socialist organization that oppresses hundreds of millions of freedom-loving people all over the place in Europe.

    Also, if it's an original sentence, don't put it in quotes. That's why Rover asked you for a source, because it looks like you're quoting someone.
