The possible deterioration of the economic situation in Britain will change public opinion in the country and the refusal of the British withdrawal from the European Union (EU). This opinion was expressed by EU Commissioner for digital economy and society günther Oettinger in an interview with Bild. The longer the United Kingdom is delaying the exit from the EU, the vague becomes the economic and political situation in the country. “I wouldn’t do high betting on Brexit,” said Oettinger.
The tightening procedure of a British exit from the EU could lead to funny situations if, for example, British politicians will participate in the European Parliament elections in 2019, he added.
He also said that he considers it impossible for Turkey’s accession to the EU, while the country is led by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Oettinger also questioned the abolition of the visa regime between the Schengen countries and Turkey.
