Simon Read on the importance of Britain's financial services sector post Brexit

May 18, 2017, 01:00 AM

While bankers may not top the poll as Britain’s most popular members of society, would we be bankrupt without them? With London’s status as the No 1 financial centre in the world uncertain there are warnings that the knock-on effect could cripple the UK economy. But is this just inflated opinion? One man who has more of a handle on these matters than most is campaigning financial journalist Simon Read. Simon is currently on a round Britain tour filming monet stories for the BBC, but joined Tim after a two-day stint in Halifax to outline just how important financial services are to Britain’s present and future. Agree or disagree with Simon’s views, we’d love to hear your feedback.
