Eurozone 'will affect UK whether in or out', says ex-Bank of England boss


The UK will be affected by the euro area whether it votes to stay in or leave the EU, according to former Bank of England boss Mervyn King.

Lord King said the eurozone would still be the UK's biggest trade partner, even though the euro had been a "mistake".

Leave campaigners argue the UK could strike better deals with faster-growing countries if it were outside the EU.

However, Germany's finance minister warned the world economy would be "poisoned" if the UK departed.
