The European Central Bank (ECB) is ready for a possible British exit from the European Union (Brexit). This was stated by ECB President Mario Draghi at a hearing in the European Parliament, reports Bloomberg.
“The ECB is ready for any unforeseen circumstances after the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU,” said Draghi, noting however that the way the Kingdom could have “significant economic consequences”.
A referendum on British exit from the EU will take place on June 23. So the decision was taken, for him to vote more than 50% of those who took part in the plebiscite.
As evidenced by the latest poll conducted by Survation for the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union are 42% of the population, as against 45%.
In case of victory of eurosceptic Britain could become the first EU member state that left the Union in the entire history of its existence.
According to the British Ministry of Finance, the independence of the European bureaucrats could cost the Kingdom of 9.5% of GDP. Billionaire George Soros, in turn, predicted in the case of withdrawal from the EU the fall of the pound is stronger than in the “black Wednesday” in 1992 — almost to the level of the Euro.
