Dire warnings for UK if it quits the EU - but not all agree

From Morning Report, 7:54 am on 14 June 2016

The President of the European Council is warning of dire consequences if Britain chooses next week to leave the EU. In an interview with German newspaper Bild, Donald Tusk said it could be the beginning of the end for the 28-nation bloc and for western political civilisation more generally. And he says a so-called Brexit vote would provide a major boost to radical anti-European forces who he said would be "drinking champagne". But not everybody agrees. Margot Parker is the small business spokesperson for Britain's UK Independence Party, Ukip.
