I wouldn't bet on Brexit, says commissioner Oettinger
The UK might not leave the EU if its economy tanks in the run-up to exit talks, Germany's EU commissioner Gunther Oettinger has told newspaper Bild. "It's possible that public opinion will tip if the economic situation in the wake of the Brexit vote worsens," he said. "In any case, I wouldn't place any major bets on Brexit." The UK is expected to start the talks early next year.
