The British pound continued to slide on Friday amid the persisting concerns related to the country’s departure from the European Union.
Yesterday, London Mayor Sadiq Khan urged Prime Minister Theresa May to revoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and cancel London’s divorce from Brussels. Khan pointed out that the worst case scenario would be if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
Meanwhile, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) is set to formally rule on Monday whether London can unilaterally decide to cancel Brexit.
