PARIS: Britons would back Brexit again if asked to vote in a second referendum, the head of Eurotunnel said on Sunday (Jan 20).
Jacques Gounon told RTL radio the original 2016 vote for Brexit was largely motivated by "anti-immigration" feeling, which would come into play again in any second plebiscite.
"If there was a second referendum, I am convinced that it would again lead to a Brexit, perhaps with an even bigger percentage," he said.
Gounon is the chairman and chief executive of Getlink , the holding company of Eurotunnel which runs the Channel Tunnel between Britain and France.
On Jan 16, Eurotunnel said it was taking steps to ensure that any "no-deal" Brexit would have minimal impact on its transport network.
