But, before that let’s just understand more about Brexit?
1 What exactly is #Brexit?
Britain or the United Kingdom has been an integral part of the European Union since 1973. Britain, then voted to become a part of a common market of nine nations which have now become 28 member nations. 19 of those nations share a common currency known as Euro and collectively the 28 member nations have a population of 500 million people. According to the rules of the European Union, these people can travel within the member nations freely, can live anywhere and set up business or shop anywhere in Europe. It also proved better for the member states as finance and business was done freely amongst the members without any restrictions.
But the recent influx of European immigrants in the UK since the Eastern European nations were accessed in the 2000s has become a headache and a point of resentment amongst the general population of UK. The 2008 financial crash also put fuel to the fire of locals going out of work due to these immigrants and slowly the influx of immigrants became an issue that Britons didn’t like. That is the reason, the Kingdom went into a referendum of whether UK wanted to be a part of EU or leave it.
