Brexit Still Puzzling Britain

A year since Britain voted to depart the EU, the exit strategies have just commenced, and Europe’s leaders are hoping that the take does not come to fruition. On June 23, 2016, Britain’s natives voted for the cessation of a cross-channel union that had been active for four decades. The scenario toppled David Cameron’s regime and his successor, Theresa May, also seems to be wobbling following a disastrous performance in a general election two weeks ago. May had initially called for the election in a bid to enhance her party’s grip on Parliament and in turn provide a much stronger voice in the Brexit negotiations with the EU. But voters sided against her Conservative’s majority and cast the divorce proceeding into new doubt. For a fact, the doubts began manifesting themselves immediately after the referendum result was announced. Indeed, Britain voted to leave the EU, but in what way?
Political analysts have pointed out that the decision partly stemmed from frustration over unregulated immigration, plus the zeal for greater national sovereignty. Many opted for the move (as a means to put an end to free movement in the EU) without realizing that the approach could be detrimental to the country’s invaluable trading markets.
