#Independent is a place for posting political articles released by the British news service.
The European Union will probably not exist within 5-10 years time. Germany and France who are the leading Nations, are not faring so well are they? Germany is near to recession, Macrons approval rating is very low, he is generally disliked by the French with Le Pen having a real chance in there upcoming local Elections. Greece have been left to clear up Brussels mess with Erdogan (with no support from the E.U), trying to protect their borders from mainly fighting age young men …who feasibly contain a number of jihadists, and the Eastern bloc countries like Hungary, Czechs, Poland plus Croatia and Austria, are not happy bunnies. The U.K were the top contributor to the E.U’s ‘treasury’ and that shortfall will be expected from the other Nations. It’s a failed project and I expect the U.K to flourish after a few ‘teething problems’ as they have always had a history of success as an Independent Sovereign Nation over the years and don’t need to be part of a sinking 'club. ’ They will take their Sovereignty back from those unelected beaurocrats from Brussels, remove themselves from the European court of justice and are currently negotiating a free trade deal. It will fantastic having our old friends back in the fold.
I remember that the anti Brexit guys demanded a second referendum after losing the first one. It’s not the best out of three! Three years later in an election dominated by Brexit and inmigration, the Conservatives easily won against a Labour party who had their worst beating since 1935! Johnson has only been on board for a few months, it is complete folly to spin this trash, and shows journalism at its very worst.
And more than half (54%) don’t.
And 8% makes a huge difference. What it shows is a deeply divided country, in which there is no national consensus on the most important things.
So it basically mirrors the United States and almost every action taken by the President. Half like it, half don’t. Status quo.
Utter nonsense. I am often in the U.K and I have friends who are both leavers and remainers. The leavers certainly haven’t changed their minds, in fact the majority would be happy to leave without a deal under World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules… without a deal. Many remainers accept the Democtatic will of the people in the 2016 referendum and accept the result. The radical left (similar to Bernies bunch) and of course the far left media like the Guardianista, the Mirror and the Independent (anything but!) would have you think otherwise.
