Ex-New York Mayor brands Brexit ‘the stupidest thing any country has ever done’…apart from one other thing

The former Mayor of New York says Brexit was the “stupidest thing any country has ever done”.

Apart from electing Donald Trump.

 And media mogul Michael Bloomberg told a technology conference in Boston two weeks ago “maybe I wouldn’t have” opened a new European headquarters in London if he had known the UK was going to quit the EU.

“My former wife was a Brit, my daughters have British passports, so we love England – it’s the father of our country, I suppose,” Mr Bloomberg said, according to the Guardian.

“But what they are doing is not good and there is no easy way to get out of it because if they don’t pay a penalty, everyone else would drop out. So they can’t get as good of a deal as they had before.”

He added: “I did say that I thought it was the single stupidest thing any country has ever done but then we Trumped it.”
