Will Brits Stay or Will They Go?
If they go there will be trouble. Prime Minister David Cameron threw the dice by offering a referendum to leave the European Union, a departure he’s campaigning hard against. But London Mayor Boris Johnson kicked off the week by saying he’ll fight for a Brexit, and ex-Conservative leader Michael Howard joined him Friday. Unknowns abound, with analysts fearing that a “go” vote in the June 23 referendum will upset markets, rile Scotland into voting for independence and leave the EU a weaker, poorer bloc while facing down an aggressive Mother Russia.
