Brexit Britain What Have You Done?
Brexit the European Exit
The result was a simple 58% to leave and 48% to remain as a member of the European Union the people of Britain elected to leave the Euro Zone and go it alone in the big wide world.
David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister and Jeremy Corbyn the leader of the Opposition is facing increasing pressure to step down from his role too.
There is an online petition for Britain to hold another referendum to be held which has over 3 million signatures at the point of writing this article and a lot of the voters who voted to leave are now regretting their decision.
The United Kingdom is a divided nation a nation in turmoil a nation facing an uncertain future and at this moment the politicians do not have any idea of how to take that nation forward as a non European Union Member.
To say that the result of the referendum came as a surprise to the Politicians is an understatement, even those leading the leave campaign were expecting that the electorate would vote to stay in Europe and that is why all of the political parties are in turmoil at this very moment and the panic is clear to see for anyone who has been following the aftermath.
At a time when a strong leader is required to take control of the country there is a distinct lack of purpose being shown by our politicians given the urgency of the situation. All they seem to be worried about at the moment is slagging each other off about how it was their fault that the country voted the way it did.
Why are the politicians in a panic? the simple answer is that they were so sure that the British public would vote to remain that they never made any plans of how to deal with a vote to leave.
How Can The Brexit Vote Be Reversed?
There are two ways in which the Brexit result can be reversed the first way is for the politicians to go against the will of the majority of the people and vote against Brexit in Parliament, the referendum that was held was not legally binding and the House of Commons politicians can vote to disregard the will of the British people.
This course of action would though be political suicide and would be sure to cause unrest amongst the British population.
Secondly since over 400 Members of Parliament were remain supporters the country could make a call of no confidence in the Government and force a General election.
Parliament would then be dissolved and a new Government would be elected, if one party decided to go on a manifesto to remain in Europe and they win the election they would have a mandate to reverse the result at the will of the voting population.
No Confidence In the Government
Should the people of the United Kingdom invoke a no confidence vote in the Government and force a General Election?
Scottish Independence Referendum 2
Scotland went against the rest of the UK and voted to remain in the European Union by a massive 68% and because of this Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon believes that Scotland has the right to hold another Scottish Independence Referendum which would further break up the United Kingdom.
This Referendum would include Scotland becoming an independant country which would allow them to join the European union as a fully fledged member state. The only question left would be, could Scotland afford to pay for membership of the EU?
Brexit An Uncertain Future
The Markets have Spoken and the Pound is at almost an all time low, the FTSE has also taken a beating and Britain looks as though it is heading into a self induced recession, the politicians are running around like headless chickens wondering what to do next and how to do it and the people are wondering when the political leaders are going to get a grip and take control of the situation.
The Country need a leader to take us forward, we need to know where we now stand in the world outside of Europe and we need to begin working towards making Britain great again.
In these uncertain times there is only one certainty and that is whatever happens it will be interesting to watch.
