The campaign for the June 23 referendum on whether or not Britain should remain a member of the European Union has just hit a horrific milestone. CNBC reports that,
“A British lawmaker was shot to death while meeting with constituents Thursday in an attack that halted campaigning over whether the U.K. should leave the European Union.
“Cox, a 41-year-old member of the opposition Labour Party, had been campaigning to keep the U.K. in the European Union.”
While the police are still investigating the motive, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine that it had to do with the lawmaker’s position on Brexit. After all, this event would have a huge impact on the future of the EU, and passions are running high.
The financial markets are seen to be particularly at risk if Britain votes to leave. As our May 2016 European Financial Forecast put it,
“… the market’s Brexit reaction was deemed to be so critical that Bloomberg conducted a special 30-minute webinar on the subject. Entitled ‘Market Response: ‘Brexit’ vs ‘Bremain,’ Bloomberg brought together four leading economists to pour over the ‘financial market implications of the vote.’
“Clearly, the recent headlines show that the bulls and bears identify strongly with the view that the historic vote will severely affect the country’s financial markets.
“But is it true that the vote will cause upheaval in the financial markets?”
