EU referendum: 250 business leaders back exit, say campaigners


According to the BBC’s recent article, ”A list of 250 business leaders who support Britain leaving the EU has been published by the Vote Leave group.”

Moreover, ”The list includes former HSBC chief executive Michael Geoghegan, the founder of Phones 4u John Caudwell and the hotelier Sir Rocco Forte.”

”But Britain Stronger in Europe said Vote Leave could not find a business to officially back it, as those listed supported it in a ‘personal capacity’.”

”Last month, bosses of 36 of the largest listed companies in Britain signed a letter urging voters to remain in the EU.”

”Vote Leave also announced that its business council would be chaired by John Longworth, who resigned his role as director general of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) earlier this month.”

What’s your view of this?

Does this mean that the UK are slightly edging more towards an exit from the EU? Is the UK business sector better of out of or within the EU? How do you think the EU Referendum will result in?
