In the latest poll of 2,000 senior businesspeople conducted by the British Chamber of Commerce ('BCC'), 60% responded they intended to vote for the UK to stay in the EU (30% said they intended to vote to leave, with 10% abstaining). 

Yet the memo didn't seem to reach the top, with BCC Director-General John Longworth subsequently voicing his own opinion that the UK "would be better off taking a decision to leave the European Union". 

It appears these comments have landed him in hot water, with Mr. Longworth being suspended by the BCC earlier today.
