2019 Is The Favourite For When UK Will Leave EU

Jean Claude Junker has stated that 29 March 2019 will be the date that the UK leaves the EU and while the date may be doubtful, William Hill are odds-on at 4/6 that 2019 is the year. It is 5/4 to leave in 2020 or later.


Junker also said of Brexit “this will be a sad and tragic moment in our history” and William Hill are now betting on who will be next. Greece is the 2/1 favourite to be the next country to leave the EU with Italy 5/2 and Sweden 6/1.


“It is clear that members of the EU feel that Brexit will have a detrimental effect on themselves and the UK but despite this, it seems clear that 2019 is the year it will take place,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
