I read an article written by Grace about Brexit and I want to give my opinion as the information can be misleading and Brexit is a historical mistake.
David Cameron had a relevant majority and he was ruling Britain comfortably. After gaining the Scotland referendum in 2014 (He allowed it to end the prospect of an independent Scotland forever as the polls gave a clear majority against independence but now the Scotland independence movement has grown stronger because of Brexit) he wanted to put pressure on the European Union with a Brexit referendum so that obtaining more money from the European Union. Besides, he wanted to get rid of radical members of his party who hate Europe (now these radical members rule the party). He thought it was impossible that British people would vote to leave the European Union. He thought his plan was great and he would show the European Union that Britain deserved more money.
At the same time, Boris Johnson madly wanted the job of David Cameron (they were both educated in the same school and had been competing against each other since their respective political careers started) and the only way to end the career of David Cameron was to support Brexit so he started a campaign full of lies.
Boris Johnson writes a weekly column regarding politics for The Daily Telegraph and he was going to write an article saying how important the European Union is and how bad for the United Kingdom was leaving the European Union. However, as David Cameron announced his Brexit referendum he changed the column and he announced he was going to support Brexit to end the career of David Cameron. The Brexit supporters started a campaign full of lies to give David Cameron the sack and they won unexpectedly as remain supporters did not defend their position fully and now Boris Johnson is the president of the UK.
The reality is that you cannot leave the European Union if you are in Europe in real terms. Indeed, Britain will have to travel to Brussels constantly to make agreements and given the world we are living Britain will be poorer and isolated. Since European countries are small only inside the European Union one can compete against countries like India, the United States or China.
What is more, Northern Ireland is on the brink of joining the rest of Ireland and Scotland wants independence because of Brexit and Britons are going to be poorer because they will not receive funds from the European Union. Some experts say that Britain will have to join the European Union again as you cannot be in Europe without doing business with the rest of the European countries that are all of them in the European Union.
The only person who has obtained something positive with Brexit is Boris Johnson and his allies, the people of Britain will suffer a lot. Brexit is a historical mistake that can end Great Britain and its beautiful greatness. In fact, support for the independence of Scotland has growth and Northern Ireland is alone and near of leaving Great Britain.
Northern Ireland remains in the European Union and there will be a frontier between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom even though Northern Ireland belongs to the United Kingdom. This is ridiculous. Boris Johnson knew about this but Brexit was the only way to be president of Great Britain. This is very, very sad, because Britons were told lies to vote leave and now they are going to face the harsh reality.
Is Brexit a good idea?????
