“As we move to a new phase, I don’t believe it is right that I should carry on as the British commissioner as though nothing had happened,” Lord Hill said. “In line with what I discussed with the president of the commission some weeks ago, I have therefore told him that I shall stand down.”
“I wanted it to end differently and had hoped that Britain would want to play a role in arguing for an outward-looking, flexible, competitive, free trade Europe. “But the British people took a different decision.”
