“Your Majesty, Brexit to you”: The United Kingdom may “disconnect”


On the night of Friday to Saturday, the UK formally withdrew from the European Union. On Friday evening, the British government arranged a festive illumination in central London. Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the people. The Royal Mint issued a 50 pence commemorative coin with the inscription “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all peoples” and the date “January 31, 2020” on the reverse.


Britain has difficult negotiations ahead


The holiday died down. At the headquarters of the European Union, the British Union Jack was quietly lowered from the flagpole. Prime Minister Johnson will no longer sit here at EU summits. British ministers will not go to Brussels to discuss the activities of the European Union. The cabinets in the European Parliament were freed 73 deputies from Britain.

Perhaps today these are the most felt consequences of the held Brexit. In the everyday life of the British and their European neighbors, no visible changes have occurred. A transitional period of one year has begun. Until December 31, 2020, the British government has to agree on free trade with the EU, the United States and, at least, with the G20 countries, in order to avoid a “collapse brexit” for its economy.

This task is extremely difficult. For example, Europeans insist on the access of their agricultural products to the British market. The islanders now, on the contrary, have the opportunity to purchase food in countries where its price is much lower.

The same situation in fisheries. A number of EU countries require unhindered access for their fishing vessels to British waters. Meanwhile, the British themselves would like to end this practice after leaving the EU. Actually, local fishermen voted for Brexit for this.

There are many such acute issues on the bilateral agenda. All of them must be worked out, agreed upon, and secured in the relevant agreements. As it will be? At one time, the European Union reached a trade agreement with Singapore only after 9 years of negotiations, with Canada - after 8, Japan - after 6. Therefore, experts doubt that the British government will be able to cope with such a difficult problem in less than a year.

The queen about the state of affairs with the "arrival of Brexit" reported long ago. Her Majesty prefers to continue to reflect on the consequences against the backdrop of a family scandal with her grandson and his wife, who flew to the United States.

How can the United Kingdom “disconnect”


Anxiety is growing inside the country. The smell of freedom was felt in Northern Ireland. There has previously been a strong movement for secession from the United Kingdom (UK) and unification with Ireland. In the recent parliamentary elections, parties of this kind received more seats in the House of Commons than supporters of a single UK.

Now in Northern Ireland this is the alignment of forces. According to a recent survey: 46% of Northern Ireland residents support leaving the United Kingdom and entering Ireland, 45% are against. The rest have not yet been decided.

The population of Scotland split in two, with the only difference being that 44% of the population of the region are supporters of independence, and 56% are opponents. However, the power of this autonomy is strong nationalist position. The Scottish National Party dominates the local parliament; its leader, Nicola Sturgeon, leads the Scottish government.

On Friday, Sturgeon promised that Scotland would return to the European Union as an independent state and recalled that 62% of Scots in a 2016 referendum voted against leaving the EU. In accordance with the statement of the first Minister of Autonomy in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and other Scottish cities, rallies and marches against Brexit took place.

All this threatens the United Kingdom to become "disconnected." And this will be a real blow to the queen, the dynasty, the entire British monarchy.

It became troubled in the distant enclave of Britain - in Gibraltar. To him, experts paint a very apocalyptic picture. In the event that London does not reach an amicable agreement with Brussels on free trade before the end of the year, Gibraltar expects a shortage of food and essentials.

This conflict is compounded by the fact that 95% of the population favors the preservation of Gibraltar as part of Britain. At least that's how people here voted in the 2016 referendum. Meanwhile, it is known that Spain claims to Gibraltar. Out of harm, Madrid can delay or even block trade negotiations between Brussels and London.

Understanding this, the Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, called on the British authorities not to extend the effect of the agreement on a free trade zone with the EU to the enclave. Picardo's statement added even more confusion to the agenda of the upcoming talks with the EU, and so promising big problems to their participants.

This whole picture after the Friday holiday Brexit shows that the year for the British authorities will be very difficult. But there is no turning back. Until January 31, the British government could still theoretically withdraw its application for withdrawal from the European Union.

Now, if London decides to return to the EU, it will have to go all the way a newcomer, as did the countries of Eastern Europe. So today, the British government has no other option but to agree with continental Europe on mutual free trade. These negotiations promise to begin in February.

Preliminary result: "Your Majesty, Brexit to you." But the queen is still silent. But as the squirrel in the wheel turns Mr. Johnson, who turned out to be more determined than Ms. May.

    The collapse of the UK - will be a national holiday! good
    The next in line is the European Union itself. In Germany, the contented strong rejection of the EEC, especially in Bavaria. And Germany is the backbone of a United Europe.
    The British - have always been opposed to Russia, always considered us - as geopolitical opponents, respectively, did everything to break up RI, the USSR.
    Now it's our turn to observe ....

      The collapse of the UK will benefit the Russian Federation, here I agree with you, but the collapse of the EU will bring great harm to the Russian Federation, as this will strengthen the US position in Europe, and this is not in the interests of the Russian Federation ... For the Russian Federation, Poland’s exit from the EU would be useful Spratland, since they impede the development of any positive relations between the EU and the Russian Federation, and if the exit from Sprotland is unlikely, unfortunately, Poland’s exit from the EU is quite real, since there are a lot of ambitions, a lot of money from the USA, and after 2020 financial assistance from the EU to Poland will be discontinued and the time will come to repay debts ...

        And I do not agree with you. The departure of any economically strong player opens up prospects for the redistribution of the market. Which Russia can use as an exporter or importer.
        Accordingly, sanctions taken in droves will also be considered by each country separately.

          Each country alone will not be able to consider anything, since only the EU at a certain stage of its development can gain enough strength to create its own army, abandon US custody and demand the withdrawal of US troops from the EU ... Only then can the EU make independent decisions, without looking back at the United States ... No Luxembourg in itself, apart from everyone, will dare to go against the United States and will not be able to pursue an independent policy, due to excessive weakness, both military and economic ... Europe is strong and relatively independent from the United States only together and only together has a chance to get rid, in fact, of the American occupation ...

            Let's take a quick look at the story. In the days of the USSR (recall the Cold War), the USSR - it was quite normal for itself to trade with Europe, in particular with Germany.
            It is much easier to control One major player - than Many small ones. Moreover, trade can go through third countries, which is generally difficult to track.

              Do not compare the Russian Federation with the USSR ... the USSR was much stronger both economically and militarily, there were more levers of pressure, and today Chubais and other Washington puppets are putting pressure on the Russian Federation itself, making its policy slurred, weak and inconsistent ... In addition, sanctions against the USSR, all these FRGs performed in the same way as today against the Russian Federation ...

                      It was, but the United States easily blocked it by creating a provocation with the Korean Boeing in the 80s .. since it was more likely at the business level, rather than at the level of governments ..

            Of course. If you imagine that Italy itself will begin to revise sanctions based on national interests, and not on pan-European interests, then there will be no sanctions immediately. And for Russia this is the best option!

        I agree with you: the collapse of Great Britain is a tremendous blessing for Russia; finally, a whole period of opposition of the Anglo-Saxons to the development of Russia will be completed.
        Anglo-Saxons throughout history have regarded Russia as one of the greatest calamities on the planet. With the collapse of Great Britain, all the mischiefs of the British woman come to an end, among which it’s enough to remember: 3 wars with Turkey, the war with Napoleon, Basmachism, the Russo-Japanese war, to which the British had a very very strong financial hand, etc., etc.
        The collapse of the European Union for Russia, for sure, will be a bad omen. As if in this case, do not slide into a big war in Europe, which will certainly be in the hands of our sworn friends across the ocean. The best option is to divide Europe into 2 zones: a zone of developed countries led by Germany and France, and a zone of 3 countries, where you can just cram all the boring Poland ... But there may be options: if Poland continues to be like this, as it is now, I’m afraid that even the pindas will not save her from the 4th final section ... the sons who are unlikely to want to fight the united Europe and Russia. Only with the new division of the Poles should be evicted from the borders of Poland, as they did in 1945 with the Germans. Let them go somewhere to Siberia. There are many places in Russia. The main thing is not to let them live compactly. And after 1-2 generations, you see, the Poles will become brisk and dig potatoes in the fields of Mother Russia.

The population of all Montana is less than the actual population of one city like Voronezh, far from the largest in the Russian Federation and in the World ... and the area of ​​Montana is 381154 square kilometers ... The area of ​​all of Poland is 312679 square kilometers, it is smaller than Montana ...

          .No one will go against the USA today in Europe, because in Europe the military garrisons and bases of the USA, their own armies and the economies of individual European countries are too weak and will not pull against the USA, and there is little hope for the Russian Federation, since the policy of the Russian Federation is too weak and inconsistent for lackeys of the USA in the government and economy of the Russian Federation ... At the expense of Poland and Spratland completely agree with you, this is a kamikaze in the war against the Russian Federation in the hands of the USA!

    All this threatens the United Kingdom to become "disconnected." And this will be a real blow to the queen, the dynasty, the entire British monarchy.

    It does not threaten anything. UK entered the EU "strange." They did not switch to the euro; they did not enter the Schengen. They were tired of enduring and feeding European bureaucrats with ridiculous quotas for fish, agricultural products and emigrants. London will not conduct any negotiations with the European Commission, the European Council and the rest of the gang, and will conclude direct interstate agreements, and business - direct contracts. Scottish Natsik want independence since the days of William Wallace. Well, in Ireland - Catholics, and in Northern Ireland - the Church of England. Therefore, religious fights with variable intensity have been going on since the XNUMXth century.
    But in general, we'll wait and see. recourse

    - Malvinas Islands (by merging with Argentina).

    There will be no collapse of Great Britain. Wales, Gibraltar, the Falklands and the crown lands will definitely remain part of the state. An exit from Scotland and Northern Ireland is unlikely. Do not forget that 90% of the population and economy of Great Britain is in England. England as a part of Great Britain plays, relatively speaking, the same role as the Russian territories and regions in the Russian Federation.
