Goldman Sachs boss Lloyd Blankfein has once again trolled the UK over Brexit.

In a tweet this afternoon, the Goldman chief executive called for another vote on the UK's departure from the EU, saying: "So much at stake, why not make sure consensus still there?"

He said there was "lots of hand-wringing from CEOs" in the UK over Brexit, and added that there was a "better sense of the tough and risky road ahead".

And although he tweeted that he was "reluctant" to say it, Blankfein said many people wanted a "confirming vote confirming vote on a decision so monumental and irreversible".

It's not the first time the banking boss has made his stance on Brexit clear on social media. Last month, Blankfein said in a tweet about a trip to Frankfurt: "Great meetings, great weather, really enjoyed it. Good, because I'll be spending a lot more time there."

Goldman Sachs has selected Frankfurt as the location for its new EU headquarters.
