Chance of Brexit Rising as Public Opinion Turns Against Brussels
The chances of the UK leaving the European Union are rising, according to a leading investment bank, with frustration over the government’s reform negotiations driving Euroskepticism.
Analysts at the French bank Societe Generale (SocGen) say that there is a 45 percent chance that the British public will vote to leave the EU when they take to the polls in the EU referendum, which will be held before the end of 2017.
Although no formal date has been set for the referendum, it is thought the vote could be held as early as the mid-2016.
