(Jun 14 Bloomberg) Britain appeared to be on course to leave the European Union, with four polls from three companies putting the "Leave" campaign ahead of "Remain."
The pound and European stocks plunged on Tuesday with just nine days of campaigning left before the June 23 referendum. After a series of new polls on Monday put "Leave" ahead, the day's final blow came when the Sun, Britain's biggest selling newspaper, backed a so-called Brexit on its front page.
"Outside the EU, we can become richer, safer and free at long last to forge our own destiny -- as America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many other great democracies already do," the newspaper said. "If we stay, Britain will be engulfed in a few short years by this relentlessly expanding German-dominated federal state."
