What now? It’s happened.
WIKI DAILY__ The deary questions on most people’s mind is, what now after a successful Brexit? what now after the victory match? what now after the glamorous celebrations at the parliament square? what now after the fan and the fare? waking up this morning out of the European Union. But we follow their rules until the end of the year, without a say?
We are separate after more than 40 years, but much of the rules will hold for now – the UK and the EU, the long time pair, finally finally disintegrates – but still sharing a house and the bills.
But what the prime minister calls a new beginning, starts months of hard bargaining with our neighbours across the Channel.
The UK’s requests: a free trade agreement, cooperation on security, and new arrangements for fishing are just some of the vital arguments that lie ahead.
The prime minister believes the opportunity of Brexit is seeing way beyond the carcass and structure of the EU. He is open to see the government pursue its priorities at home. More freedom to act abroad – a smaller, but perhaps active partner.
Departure has been so controversial there will be plenty of rival politicians looking for early proof of failure.
In truth, the merits or mistakes of this decision to exit the EU will take years to show. The economy is expected to grow but in a slower pace, we all know that a country’s value is not just measured in the now and quick.
