The popular German tabloid Bild is so confident that Britain will choose to stay in the EU, it ran a story today saying they have bet £10,000 on the outcome.
The story, in German, says:
We believe: the English, Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh are, due to their long standing democratic culture, their critical minds, liberalism, their economic performance, their creativity and also because of their sense of humour, are a vital part of the EU.
We say cheers to that.
Here’s what the full story looks like
Bild, which literally means ‘picture’ in English, is a tabloid famed for its stunts.
It is the largest circulation newspaper in Germany.
Its reporter adds:
You can call us crazy but we believe in the British and have put £10,000 on a remain vote, that they will vote to stay and will vote against a separation from the continent.
Bild believes in Great Britain, Bild believes in the common sense and rationality of the British.
But it will call come down to turnout.
Let’s hope they’re right…
