Moscovici: I have just one plan

The EU Commission has no plan ‘B’ in place if Britain votes to leave the European Union, EU Economc Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici said according to Reuters. “The day we start talking about a plan `B' is the day we no longer believe in our plan 'A'. I have just one plan. The United Kingdom in a united Europe,” Moscovici said in a French television interview. Britons will vote June 23 on whether to remain a member of the EU. “If there was a vote for Great Britain to leave the EU, it will be an inversion of the historic dynamic of the past years which has seen more countries join the bloc,” Moscovici said.
