Brexit helped propel Boris Johnson to the Prime Ministership. His chaotic tenure saw him ousted from 10 Downing Street. Johnson’s impeachment marks the beginning of the end of Brexit.
To realize this, the humble liar told the Englishman things that were too good to be true. Now the costs of divorce are becoming difficult to bear. The decision to leave the European Union is causing permanent economic damage to Britain.
Trade spats caused by Brexit have left the UK with higher inflation and slower economic growth than many other developed countries. Investment has fallen by 14% and, in the longer term, UK exports and imports are expected to fall by 15%.
When the British joined in the 1970s to revive their economy, they threatened to become the “sick man of Europe” again.
And the opinion of the British changes as they discover that the Americans don’t give a damn about what happens to them. Bye, bye the idea of an economic “anglosphere” replacing the EU.
When is Bre-Entry?
Are they ready to restart the entire negotiations to rejoin the EU, the years of arguments that divide the country and use its energies?
And when the British wanted to return, they had to do so without expecting any favors or concessions. Britain should accept the euro instead of the pound.
Moreover, the potential consequences of Brexit will make the return even more difficult. With the Brits out, the EU aims for ever-closer integration, making bree-entry a less attractive prospect.
Some say it takes a generation. But politics in Europe, as in Britain, is now moving at a faster pace. A second Scottish independence referendum is about to take place, less than seven years after the issue was settled ‘for a generation’. Eventually an independent Scotland would join the EU.
Northern Ireland is already halfway there. Disputes with London over the implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol continue and relations will remain strained for the foreseeable future.
The future of the English is in Europe
Six years after the Brexit referendum and more than two years after leaving the bloc, a recent poll suggests most Britons will vote to join the EU. 82 percent of those who did not vote in the 2016 referendum said they would now vote to rejoin Europe. The majority in favor of EU membership is highest among young voters, 77% of whom would vote to join the bloc.
I don’t know how long it will take, but it seems inevitable that the English will ask the Europeans to rejoin the Union.
” Britannia rules the tides “, declares the English patriotic song. Except for the bree-entry, it is ” The tides rule Britannia “.
