Richard Branson has described Brexit as “the saddest thing that’s happened to our country since the Second World War”.
The Virgin Group founder was speaking at a press conference in Tel Aviv last night to promote the launch of a new Virgin Atlantic Heathrow-Tel Aviv route.
He added that Brexit had “done enormous damage to people, companies and people with money in their pocket.”
When asked his thoughts on a second referendum, Branson said: “I think we’d see the pound roaring back up and happier days all round.”
Branson also revealed that his spaceflight company Virgin Galactic would float on the stock market on Monday, with him flying out to New York that day for the occasion.
