303 Days to Go

Today in Brexit: With Italy dominating the headlines, a prominent anti-Brexit voice has a warning for the EU.

Less than two years after the Brexit vote, a new crisis is brewing in Europe.

Political turmoil in Italy rocked global markets yesterday, sparked by the prospect of anti-Europe, nationalist parties turning an election into a de facto referendum on Italy’s membership of the euro. Bond yields soared and the single currency fell. The British pound didn’t escape the selloff, falling to a six-month low against the dollar as investors sought the safest assets.

The turbulence, greeted with glee by some pro-Leave campaigners in Britain, recalls the chaos of the region’s debt crisis earlier this decade. It also serves as a timely reminder that the U.K.’s rocky process toward the exit isn’t quelling anti-EU movements across the continent, and that Europe’s problems do not stop at Brexit.
