The great business referendum snub

Simon Jack

BBC Business Editor

"This is not the outcome business wanted," according to Carolyn Fairbairn, the director general of the CBI. So why was business ignored?

Businesses can't vote. All they can do is raise their voice and they did try. Memos to staff, letters to newspapers, industry surveys all shouting about the risks of Brexit - all fell on deaf ears. The implicit warnings about trade, investment and jobs did not convince voters that their interests were best served by staying in the EU.

The Remain campaign hoped that a last minute armada of 1,200 businesses from Asda to Vodafone assembled in the pages of the Times might persuade workers that their employer's priorities were their priorities. It didn't.

BreakingMorgan Stanley looks to move 2,000 London staff

Joe Lynam

Sources within Morgan Stanley say it has already begun the process of moving about 2,000 of its London-based investment banking staff to Dublin or Frankfurt. And it has a taskforce in place.

The jobs which would be moved from the UK would be in euro clearing but also other investment banking functions and senior management.

The American investment bank needs to avail of the passporting system which allows banks to offer financial services in all countries in the EU without having to establish a permanent base in that member state.

The president of Morgan Stanley, Colm Kelleher, told Bloomberg two days ago that Brexit would be “the most consequential thing that we’ve ever seen since the war”.

Boris Johnson: Young people now have an assured future

Boris Johnson says the British people have "decided to take back control" of the UK by voting to quit the European Union.

He says the electorate "has searched in their hearts and answered as honestly as they can" on a poll the like of which we've never seen in this country - and they've decided to take back control.

He says there is no need for haste - nothing will change over the short term apart from work will begin on how to extracate this country from the "supernatural system".

He attempted to reassure Remain campaigners that Britain will continue to be a great European power and wouldn't be "any less European".

Boris Johnson says young people - who were more likely to have voted Remain - now have an assured future.

Arguing that the EU "was a noble idea of its time, but no longer right for this country", he says the UK can now find its voice again as "an extraordinary force for good".

The people have spoken up for democracy in Britain and in Europe, he adds.

City shock at referendum result

Today Programme

BBC Radio 4

A stocky, unshaven man in a blue raincoat strode across the concourse of Liverpool Street station at 5am, complaining bitterly to his taller companion. "Jesus. Jesus. It's bad. I'm heavily levered on this," he said, frantically rubbing his jaw.

The trader was typical of the tens of thousands of City staff who turned up for work this morning with their professional world turned upside down.

Encouraged by yesterday's opinion polls, which suggested Britain would stay in the European Union, professional investors bid up the pound and British shares. 

The pound finished the night of the vote worth $1.50, and the FTSE 100, an index that tracks the health of the UK's biggest listed companies, up 1.2%.

They were wrong. Britain voted narrowly to leave, and while most City traders slept - only a tiny minority stayed at their desks to watch the results - the pound was falling like a stone.

Trading on Asian markets sent it down by nearly 10%, making it worth just $1.34. It was the biggest fall in the pound's history as a free-floating currency.

EU referendum reveals a less than United Kingdom

Mark Easton

Home editor

The EU referendum has revealed an ancient, jagged fault line across the United Kingdom. It is a scar that has sliced through conventional politics and traditional social structures, and it is far from clear whether the kingdom can still call itself united.

The referendum was ostensibly about membership of the European Union. But voters took it to be asking a different question: what kind of country do you want Britain to be?

Woman waves union flag
PA

Yesterday seemed to offer a fork in the road: one path (Remain) promised it would lead to a modern world of opportunity based on interdependence; the other (Leave) was advertised as a route to an independent land that would respect tradition and heritage.

It has been striking to me how in one place almost everybody expressed genuine bewilderment that anyone would consider anything but a vote to leave, and in another neighbourhood they are quite baffled as to why people wouldn't be desperate to remain.

England rugby star Danny Cipriani has been convicted of drink-driving after getting behind the wheel having spent the night drinking cocktails and champagne.

The fly-half, 28, was so drunk his eyes were "glazed", he slurred his words and could not stand straight after he crashed his black Mercedes into a taxi in London at 5.15am on 1 June last year.

The Wasps player, then with Sale Sharks, was breathalysed after the crash in Imperial Road, Fulham, and found to have 67 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath - twice the drink-drive limit. 

He was found guilty of drink-driving following a trial at Westminster Magistrates' Court.
