The UK’s choice to leave the EU will have a huge impact on the European Union and the rest of Europe. We’ll keep you up to date with how Europe is reacting to this historic change, what political ramifications Brexit has led to, and European attitudes to a nation that has said a resounding ‘No’ to European integration.
LEAVE.EU INSIGHT AND ANALYSIS
AN OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT
The historic decision that the UK made on June 23, 2017 has sent shockwaves through the entirety of European politics. While many prominent figures in the EU have condemned the decision, for obvious reason, there has also been a huge wave of support from all across Europe. In this section we’ll be looking at the outpouring of positive reactions from various groups and political figures in the EU.
DISSATISFACTION IN THE POPULACE
It’s not surprising that with an ongoing migrant crisis dominating the minds of people all over the continent and the extreme austerity measures imposed upon Greece and Portugal by the EU, that there would be a growing wave of dissatisfaction amongst the population of the EU. As of September 2017, inspired by the bold action the UK took to reclaim its independence, parties and people in Austria, France, Norway, Germany and the United States have spoken up and demanded change.
REFERENDUMS RULE THE DAY
Recent surveys have shown that 40% of Austrians, 42% of Danes, 53% of French, 58% of Italians, 54% of Dutch, and 38% of Hungarians desired a referendum on their nations EU membership. Polling also showed that around half of Danes, Dutch and Italians would vote to leave the EU if they were presented with a referendum today. Now that we’ve succeeded in our own referendum, and created a perfect example of how people who are dissatisfied with the EU can make their voices heard, it’s certain that there will be a greater call for direct democracy on the continent.
