I have to say that the result of the Brexit-vote came as a surprise on Old Mamasan. I really did not see that one coming. I was certain that the “stay” side would win. I was wrong. The question is “What now?”
(What is Brexit? It is a term for UK leaving the EU, a blend of “British” and “Exit”)
UK Prime Minister David Cameron and various MP’s have talked calmly about negotiations and finding good and elegant solutions all morning. And there is no doubt in my heart that that is what they will attempt to do.
But – there are 27 other countries on EU’s member list, so an elegant negotiation is certainly not guaranteed, and that both EU and UK will be happy with the terms and conditions in the end is highly doubtful. The other EU members are:
- Czech Republic
It should be clear to everyone that this list of countries represent a multitude of cultures, politics, ethics, history and economy, and to find a one cure to benefit them all must be near impossible. Some of these countries will be disgruntled. Toes will be stepped on. Perhaps that is why the vote resulted as it did in the first place?
Does the UK know what they just did? Nope. No one does. What effect will this vote have for the UK, for the EU, for the EEC and for the rest of the world? We don’t know. Will be an interesting voyage to follow.
Got to hand it to David Cameron though: this is Democracy. The people were given a choice. And the people are heard. The Brexit is on.
