Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

ouch!

Taken from the Telegraph - Guy Verhofstadt, the leader of the liberal bloc who is an old-school believer in the United States of Europe and is allied to the Lib Dems, says

"I may not know the result of the referendum, but I am sure this will not reunite the Tories. Because it is now about personal ambitions of two men. A glorified cockfight. With Boris Johnson challenging David Cameron." He goes on: "It's "totally bonkers".
"It is pathetic for Britain. The Pound is rapidly falling. The unity of the UK is being threatened. And their American cousins say 'stop it', we will not make a trade deal with you outside the Union. The ‘special relationship’ between UK and the US is not so special any more. "
He warns there will be no new renegotiation after a "no" vote and that a vote to leave would "only help people like Vladimir Putin and Bashar Al-Assad".
"Those who stand to lose the most from this referendum are ordinary British citizens. They see their currency endangered, their country alienated from the US, their Great Britain transformed into nothing more than little England."
