Goldman Sachs boss calls for second Brexit referendum

Goldman Sachs boss calls for second Brexit referendum

Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein has risked the ire of Brexiteers once again by suggesting holding another European referendum. 

In a tweet posted yesterday Blankfein wrote: 'Here in UK, lots of hand-wringing from CEOs over #Brexit. Better sense of the tough and risky road ahead.

'Reluctant to say, but many wish for a confirming vote on a decision so monumental and irreversible. So much at stake, why not make sure consensus still there?'

At the end of last month Blankfein fired off a missive about the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

Tweeting a picture of the investment bank’s new £300 million headquarters, which are still being constructed in the City, Blankfein mused about whether it will actually be filled with bankers following the referendum vote.


‘In London. GS still investing in our big new Euro headquarters here. Expecting/hoping to fill it up, but so much outside our control. #Brexit,’ he posted.

The Goldmans chief  had made headlines earlier in the month when he tweeted ‘just left Frankfurt. Great meetings, great weather, really enjoyed it. Good, because I’ll be spending a lot more time there. #Brexit’.
