Sudhir Hazareesingh has been interviewed by French magazine Télérama (30 June) about what the possiblity of Britain leaving the EU means to him, personally and professionally.

Sudhir comments that he sees one of the biggest problems for the UK Government will be to maintain access to the EU's single market whilst rejecting the freedom of movement to the UK by EU citizens.  He points out that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has already ruled this out.  He also says that he fears Britain will follow the economic model of Guernsey, and seek to attact foreign investment by extreme deregulation.
