We have been talking about the bomb drop that Brexit in the UK caused for several weeks. And although it is true that this particular majority has only been endorsed the citizens of England, Scotland and Wales, the fact is that democratic decision also rests with Scottish and Irish who were not willing to secede from the European Union. The votes are what they are and 17,410,742 British voted in favour of Brexit and 16,577,342 citizens of the Kingdom against, a ballot participation of 72%.
But what is Brexit? The "buzzword" in question emanates from an abbreviation of two words in English, Britain and Exit, with is an easy way of saying the simple phrase: Britain's departure from the European Union.
Suddenly, the word Brexit became more talked about in the realm of the British when the secessionist referendum, which, curiously, posed another question to the British that soon disappeared from the front pages of major newspapers that invited Bremain, that is to say, stay in the European Union.
As everyone knows, the first consequence of the "non-binding" referendum results has cost its main promoter his job, that is to say, Prime Minister David Cameron. Nobody believed in Europe, and we still do not understand yet that the Conservative Party could have taken such a disastrous decision that has opened the can of worms wide, and above all has meant financial uncertainty for the UK and the European Union itself.
