Banging Your Head over Brexit?
It’s been exactly two years since the referendum was held, for a small majority of 52% of those voting, supported the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union –Brexit. Since then, conversations, either in a bus, at the market, or at the school, is always the same –Brexit.
A man was lamenting on social media on how he cannot stand Brexit. He said, “I tear up newspaper, I angrily turn off the TV as I scream and as we speak I have already smashed two of my radios. I sometimes crouch in a fetal position as I bang my head so hard against the wall.” As he lives in fear of his business crumbling, since his business revolves around politics, he is also afraid that his wife will leave him. This leads us to our question, what about Brexit? It is a nationwide fixation that has become so intense and enduring than any world cup or any royal wedding within the European Union governance. This means that the European Union countries have split parties, havocked tribes while Britain is a populace of rational zombies.
BBC has launched loads of programs, and the presumption is, people are generally fleeing both good and bad news about Brexit. This heightens the fear of increased populism as well as a decrease in democracy. Some people view Brexit as a mistake while simultaneously agreeing that it extends broadly along customs union lines. Tallying with certain polls after the referendum in 2006 presenting that Brexit’s intentions had nothing to do with trade, but was over immigration. Researchers portrayed people to wanting free trade with Europe.
That being said, there is a sense of panic. Early this year, the government in the European Union mentioned that in case Britain clatters from the federation without a contract, then flights could cease between the UK and the rest of the European Union. In essence, a trip will have no choice but to seek permission to operate with corresponding states such as Europe since the earlier issued aviation licenses would be unenforceable and void. Hence, the government says that if the UK leaves the European Union next year without a valid contract, then both of their airlines would lose the automatic right to operate air services without requesting for advance authorization.
Reporters of The Guardian magazine reported that the Japanese carmaker Nissan warned the government in the European Union on a severe disruption. The disruption was feared to affect manufacturers especially those operating in the North-east of England if the UK neglects a deal between them and the European Union that circumvents a hard Brexit. Technically, the company’s operations are described as a European investment which has employed 8,000 employees in Sunderland and an additional 30,000 employees in several companies in the UK. In my opinion this enhances convenience when importing millions of components from the European Unions with no customs interruptions or tariffs. You should understand, if the government in the EU does not agree to the common standards to allow free movement of goods, then this would result in trading with EU countries on World Trade Organization rules, which employ 4.5% charges to car parts and 10% to finished cars.
Well, sources say the government in the European Union is revising their backstop plan, with the Brexit secretary, and Dominic Raab to come up with new and favorable offers. After all, there might be some hopes for a breakthrough to end the impasse.
