B-leave or Bremain? World watches as UK decides
world leaders are not helping either. The World Bank, the Bank of England, the OECD, the IMF and the WTO are in favour of Britain remaining in the European Union. The latest Financial Times poll (Thursday, June 16) indicated a 47% leave majority and a 44% remain minority. With such varying opinions, it is near impossible to anticipate the likely outcome of the vote. Brexiteers claim that by leaving the European Union, Britain will save itself GBP 8 billion every year from regulation alone. The IMF counters that argument by saying that income and trade losses would totally upend the savings generated.
