Three years ago, with the referendum of June 23, 2016, the British people decided with a percentage of almost 52% and with 71.8% participation the exit of Great Britain from the European Union. This great result was undoubtedly
This great result was undoubtedly the first major, painful defeat for the under German-controlled European Union of banks and multinationals.
However, the exit of Great Britain from the European Union, which was scheduled to take place on 29 March 2019, after exactly two years before had been activated by the article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, which allows members-states to leave the union, ultimately it did not happen because of a failure to reach an agreement with the Brussels establishment.
This act of exit, which unfortunately did not take place on 31 October 2019 and during the second major extension and which will liberate Great Britain from the shackles of the European Union, shows, on the one hand, full respect for the will of the British people and on the other hand conflicts with those who are trying in various ways to delay or even cancel the proud Brexit.
Following the parliamentary hurdles raised by opposition parties in front of Brexit and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s recent agreement with the European Union, it has finally been possible for Parliament to pass its bill on early parliamentary elections, which will take place on 12 December 2019. At the same time, the European Union has given another extension of the Brexit deadline, this time to 31 January 2020.
These elections are absolutely crucial to bringing an end to Brexit’s endless psychodrama. And this will happen in the event of Boris Johnson’s sweeping victory and conquest of necessary parliamentary majority, who will thus be able to move on approval of the withdrawal agreement.
It is more than certain that with Brexit is not going to be the end of the world for Great Britain as it did not happen when it chose to stay out of the eurozone. And, as eminent experts say, the British economy after a short problematic period will be significantly strengthened from a competitive point of view. So there is no doubt for any perspicacious observer and analyst that in the medium and long term, Great Britain, which will fully regain the ability to pursue national policy in all areas, will prosper out of an undemocratic and highly bureaucratic plan in which Germany has a dominant role.
However, the supporters of the stay of Great Britain in the European Union essentially want the British people’s will to be annulled and the referendum thrown into the trash following the result of which did not cause any immediate economic crisis as they were warning. So they sow fear and terror by inflating and magnifying any short-term negative effects.
Nevertheless, Brexit will not only have negative impacts on Great Britain, but also on the European Union. Brexit undoubtedly threatens the unity of the union and creates an example of secession that other countries are likely to follow in the future (Domino Effect), while the lack of Great Britain financial contribution (around ten billion annually) will significantly affect the community budget. At the same time the Great Britain’s major trading partners (Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Belgium) will be significantly affected, while the European Union as a whole will cease to have the largest share of world GDP and be the largest trading power internationally, giving its position in the US and China.
The blow for the European Union from Brexit, and indeed without an agreement, and given the USA’s solidarity that accompanies it and can be translated maybe into a major privileged bilateral Great Britain-USA trade agreement, is much more than crucial and can prove fatal for the European Union and the Eurozone, at a time when the latter is experiencing a prolonged economic and political crisis, which has been on the rise lately.
So in the face of heightened power competition between world powers (US, China, Russia, EU) it is more than obvious that the Donald Trump government and the American deep state have decided to curb German influence in the area of the western camp and prevent decisively the enforcement of German wills in European space.
Today’s vision against the rotten, totalitarian and highly neoliberal German European Union, which is the most failed experiment of economic and political union between different nation-states in history, can only be the equal co-operation of free European peoples and sovereign independent democratic countries from one end of Europe to the other.
In closing I would like to stress emphatically that nothing can not prevent the will of the British people, who have been trained many centuries with the democratic traditions and with the precepts of freedom and independence, to liberate his country from the iron shackles of the European Union. Those who are calling for a second referendum in order to emerge what they want, that is, actually to blackmail democracy, have to know that the ultimate winner will be the sovereign people and the decision they took three years ago.
