According to a new poll, fewer than a quarter of Britons believe the UK should rejoin the EU

The Ipsos MORI poll, conducted between December 3 and 7, found that only 24% of British adults aged 16 and older wanted Britain to rejoin the EU. Another 30% thought Britain had erred in leaving but should now make the best of the situation.

Another 34% agreed Brexit was the right decision.

The City of London's standing as a worldwide financial powerhouse appears to be in jeopardy, with EU corporations refusing to apply for full UK authorisation.

Despite the FCA communicating to them towards the end of last year, only 39 out of 72 firms intended to submit did so by the September 30 deadline, meaning 46% did not.

“Firms headquartered in Europe have found that they can really extend into the UK rather than needing to set up authorised UK corporations, and many have gone down that route,” said Niki Beattie, founder and CEO of Market Structure Partners.

In the future, the UK may have less reach because corporations do business here but are not headquartered here.
