What Europeans Think About BREXIT
The following are two videos from a European perspective on the UK vote to leave the EU.
First an opinion given before the vote from an ex Norwegian Government minister who compares the "project fear" tactics rolled out by the Remain campaign, to her own EU referendums.
They had two referendums in 1972 and 1994, and they voted NO BOTH times.
However they still pay just over half a billion to be part of the European Single Market and have to accept free movement of people and labour.
She declares the "Project Fear" to be "All Rubbish", and that we have "Nothing to fear from BREXIT".
Now from an opinion from a famous Italian Economist who lists out all the benefits from us voting to leave the EU.
Paolo Barnard, is a very censored Italian economic journalist and he lists all the reasons we should not fear a BREXIT in the video below.
It is also very interesting for all those on the Remain side who have scoffed at claims from myself and others on the left who have voted out due to the push towards globalism and the downward push on wages that:
“for what are the Bilderbergs men trembling for (then)? What are the huge companies afraid of? No they’re not scared of an economic loss, they are scared of the loss of control over a neo-feudal, authoritarian and anti-democratic project called the European Union.” – Paolo Barnard.
So did either of these videos calm your fears about voting BREXIT or do you still believe we are sailing dangerous waters with the prospect of Scotland voting to leave the UK?
This seems unlikely seeing that the SNP leader, Nicola Sturgeon tried recently to reach out to the EU to see if Scotland could remain in the EU and was rebuffed.
She was told that the whole of the UK must leave the EU including the parts that voted to Remain such as Northern Ireland and Scotland.
She was also told that despite SNP claims to the contrary in the recent lost Scottish Independence Vote, that she would have to re-apply to join the EU, and most importantly accept the Euro.
This was NOT something she wanted to hear as the SNP claimed during the last vote that they would be able to keep the pound despite the claims by the UK Chancellor that this was not possible.
Having to wait years without free trade with the rest of the UK OR Europe would leave Scotland in an even worse position that the UK now as at least they can trade with England AND Europe for the next 2 years until we de-tangle from the EU under Article 50.
If Scotland leaves the UK they would be alone and in uncertain waters. The Euro is a failing project and that is probably one of the reasons they wanted to keep the pound.
So don't worry about the UK splitting up, I don't think it will happen anytime soon.
What do you think?
Are you worried?
Rememebr to vote at the top of the page if you think we made the right or wrong decision.
