Bulgaria: UK EU Commissioner Jonathan Hill Resigns

EU Commissioner Jonathan Hill, Britain's top EU official, has announed his resignation.

In a statement on the commissions's website, he is "obviously very disappointed about the result of the referendum" like many people in Brussels and in the UK, referrring to a decision of 52% of voters to leave the EU on Friday.

"I came to Brussels as someone who had campaigned against Britain joining the euro and who was sceptical about Europe. I will leave it certain that, despite its frustrations, our membership was good for our place in the world and good for our economy."

"But what is done cannot be undone and now we have to get on with making our new relationship with Europe work as well as possible."

The full statement is available here.

In 2014, Jonathan Hill was appointed European Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union.
