Staying in EU ‘best hope’ for UK’s future say ex-US Treasury secretaries

Source: BBC, The Times

The BBC have published an article to emphasis the views of eight former US Treasury Secretaries, about their respective views on the UK’s EU outcome. They state that ”leaving the European Union would be a “risky bet” for the UK”

Furthermore, the BBC states that ”the advisors, who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, say it could threaten London’s pre-eminence as a financial capital.”

”In a Times article ahead of President Obama’s UK visit, they say it would be ‘difficult’ to negotiate trade deals.”

However, ”leave campaigners accused the men of double standards and ‘belittling’ Britain’s place in the world”

What’s YOUR view of this? 

Are the former US Treasury members right in their comments on the potential outcome of a possible brexit? Will this help to sway UK citizens votes towards the Britain Stronger in Europe Campaign? What do you think will be the outcome of the EU Referendum?
