Brexit: What Happens Now?
The Irish news reports Britain exiting the European Union is a heartbreaking event. On 23rd June 2016, a vote was conducted in Britain asking the people whether or not they want to stay with the European Union. Of the huge turnout of 78.1% population, 51% were in favor of Brexit and 49% were against. Therefore, Brexit was called for. While England and Wales voted in favor, Scotland and Northern Ireland stayed back. Britain’s exit is due on 31st October 2019. Stopping Brexit would result in changing the law in the UK which neither the government nor the opposition is willing to do. Brexit can be delayed but Theresa May is willing to do it as soon as possible. The politicians want a fair deal for the smooth exit of Britain and hammer trading relationships. Theresa May have presented a 585 pages long withdrawal agreement to the European Union which is being referred to as the divorce of Britain with European Union. A 26-page long declaration on future relations has been given which states the trade, security and defense relations between the two in the future.
