The latest opinion polls suggest Britain is likely to vote to leave the European Union in the referendum on June 23. While naive readings of the polls suggest a 50-50 split, turnout is projected to be far higher among those wanting to leave the EU.

The German government, according to reliable sources, has made provisions for Brexit.

These include:

1) Immediately toning down any reference to "punishing" Britain for leaving;

2) Forging a UK-EU cooperation agreement to deal with all strategic, economic and migration issues;

3) Including, as a top priority, the United States, to be an honest broker.

The sources are at the top level in Europe and the United States. Doubters should ask Mrs. Merkel's office, and the State Department.
