All this time, Britain and Europe have been nightmares and continue to nightmare with the disastrous consequences of Brexit. The effect of horror films, naturally, was worked by stock speculators, after which the organizers of the show reported: the world market, ah, lost 3 trillion!
British Finance Minister Osborne announced that a withdrawal from the European Union would result in a budget loss of 30 billion pounds over four years and, therefore, they would have to increase all taxes and cut expenses. At the same time, Brekzit supporters notice that the UK’s UK membership fee alone is 8 billion pounds, which in almost four years covers almost all Osborne virtual losses.
This is if Osborne does not lie, but he, to put it mildly, manipulates. The direct economic losses of Great Britain from leaving the EU are highly controversial. In any case, there is a country nearby, Norway is called, far from even Britain, which does not suffer from a lack of membership in the European Union at all. As far as indirect, long geopolitical results are concerned, this is quite another matter.
The European Union is experiencing a deep crisis. A year ago, Germany, the undisputed leader of the EU, prevented a small, unhappy Greece from leaving the European Union, just to prevent a precedent. Under any other circumstances, Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union would be only a plus for him if the European Union saw itself as a subject in global competition. Britain has always been an American Trojan horse within the EU, but in its current state any sudden movement is detrimental to the patient. The British Brexit creates a precedent against which the European Union has no recipe.
It is not surprising that the leaders of the European Union immediately rushed to look for such a recipe. The natural reaction is a sharp increase in the European Union, in fact, turning it into a full-fledged state.
“A strong Europe in the world of uncertainties” is the name of a document agreed upon by the foreign ministers of France and Germany, as a recipe for saving the European Union from the consequences of Brexit. A characteristic reaction of the Polish state channel "TV Polonia", at the disposal of which was a document. “In fact, we are talking about an ultimatum presented by Paris and Berlin to the countries of the European Union,” say the Poles. According to the draft, the participating countries will not be entitled to their own army, special services, criminal code, currency, tax and visa policy. According to TVP, “if the document is approved, a single super-state will be created instead of the European Union, which will depend on the strongest European players.”
That is from Germany. The Germans have long been tired of breaking the comedy with the equality of votes and the veto right of every “Bulgaria” in the European Union. However, it is characteristic that it was the Poles who raised the boil. Logically, it is Poland - for nothing that the Polish Tusk presides in the European Council - has every reason to expect to take the place of Great Britain in the facilitated European Union - large enough, immensely vociferous and absolutely, for the most Polish apples, pro-American. At the same time, the Poles are absolutely right that the European Union will finish off a serious attempt to tighten the nuts in the current situation.
George Soros, a well-known philanthropist and adventurer, one of those who frightened Europe and Britain most loudly with Brexit and earned the most money, writes: “After Brexit, all of us who believe in values and principles for which created by the EU, must unite to save the European Union through its thorough restructuring. "
We are well aware of what happens as a result of the restructuring of a sick political structure. So the Poles are unlikely to take advantage of the new vacancy.
