Brexit: Choukeir Gives Reason to Remain Optimistic

Britain appeared to be on course to leave the European Union, with four polls from three companies putting the “Leave” campaign ahead of “Remain.” Monday saw a day of intense volatility on the currency markets, as the pound swung between losses of 1 percent and gains of 0.5 percent. Then in the evening came a series of polls putting “Leave” ahead. In the day’s final blow to “Remain,” the Sun, Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper, backed a so-called Brexit on its front page.
