In further signs of economic fallout from last week's shock vote, the government also warned it would likely abandon a key promise to achieve a budget surplus by 2020, while no-frills airline EasyJet announced contingency plans to ensure its European operations after Brexit. Britain has been plunged into extraordinary political turmoil since Britons voted by 52 percent in favour of leaving the European Union, with the ruling Conservatives and opposition Labour party in disarray and the country deeply polarised.
