Brexit – Goldman says risk of general election rises amid parliament impasse
LONDON (Reuters) – Goldman Sachs said on Tuesday the risk of a general election in Britain has intensified as the impasse in parliament over the country’s exit from the European Union shows no signs of being resolved.
The report comes after lawmakers rejected alternatives to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal on Monday night.
The bank kept its estimates for the probability of various outcomes from the protracted process unchanged.
