Brexit: to Leave in English Manner will be Difficult

The UK has voted to leave the European Union after Leave won 52 percent to Remain's 48 per cent. Although the referendum is not legally binding, i.e, the Prime Minister and The Government have the right to ignore the results, Cameron hardly ignore its results, as he was the one to initiate a referendum. The day after the referendum the predictions about the possible economic consequences of Brexit has already started to come true. Sterling hits 30-year low, oil prices also fell to the background of the first British referendum results. "The United Kingdom has decided to go its own way. I think the economic data show this morning that it will be a very difficult way," European Parliament President Mr Schulz said, expressing hope that the negotiations on the exit will now begin quickly. It should be noted that already on June 25, the foreign ministers of 6 EU countries (Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg) will hold talks in Berlin to discuss consequences of Brexit for the EU.

While the EU is trying to understand its actions in the created conditions, a serious political crisis matures in Britain. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who was in support for the EU membership, has already declared about his possibe resignation. At the same time after the results of the referendum Scotland and Northern Ireland have announced about holding a referendum on the issue of the withdrawal from the UK.

62 percent of the population of Scotland and 56% of Northern Ireland population voted in favor of staying in the EU. "This British Government has forfeited any mandate to represent the economic or political interests of people in Northern Ireland, because it's population wants to remain part of the EU," the Irish nationalist "Sinn Fein" party's chairman Declan Kearney said. 

"There is no way of predicting all the political consequences of this event – especially for the UK. It is a historic moment, but not a moment for hysterical reactions," The Guardian quotes European Council President Donald Tusk as saying, adding that the EU summit will be held next week, already without Great Britain.
