Former UK Prime Minister John Major took aim at Brexit proponents, calling their campaign squalid, underscoring how rattled the ‘Remain’ campaign is after a series of polls showed a narrowing margin over ‘Leave.’
Trader’s remarks: The ferocious debate has split the governing Conservative party down the middle, with the fates of Johnson, Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne tied to the outcome of the June 23 referendum. With just under three weeks to go until Britons vote, both sides are intensifying their rhetoric. Both sides have accused each other of scaremongering, ‘Leave’ on immigration and ‘Remain’ on the economy.
