(SOUNDBITE) (English) CHIEF ECONOMIST GERMANY WITH JULIUS BAER BANK, DAVID KOHL, SAYING: "When we look through the whole Brexit game we have to say that the longer the exit is delayed the more pressure is there to find a sensible solution, a solution which might be even softer than the proposal that are now on the table.

While consumer figures come out Tuesday.
