Will Brexit be the prelude of the end of political Europe? According to vice chancellor Sigmar Gabriel it is not unthinkable that, if other countries will follow Britain’s lead, the European Union is heading for destruction.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, such an event would be the end of the most hated and undemocratic political organization ever. There is no European country like German who benefited the most of the EU.De facto EU president Angela Merkel will do her utmost to avoid a disappearance of the block in thin air. Recently she met a number of European leaders to prepare solid ground for a September summit focused on the EU’s post-Brexit future.
But many unhappy Europeans can’t wait to see the end of the Brussels dictatorship. Fact is that the EU never showed being capable in solving major issues like the financial crisis and the immigration issue. Instead politicians are working overtime to develop the most idiotic rules to make life for ordinary hard working people and small business unbearable.
People simply don’t understand a ban on water cookers with a higher power consumption than 2000 watt. Compared with water cookers that consume 3000 watt, due to the relative shorter warming up time, the net energy consumption for both types is near the same. I personally believe that politicians developing such nonsense regulation should be locked up in a lunatic asylum.
Anyway, let there be no mistake about it that Brexit leaves it footsteps and Gabriel realizes that a lot of damage already has been done. The continent is now shaking on its foundations. Enough trouble to put Europe on the world economic map as unstable territory.
The next steps in unwinding the participation of the UK are critical. Gabriel: “If we organize Brexit in the wrong way, then we’ll be in deep trouble, so now we need to make sure that we don’t allow Britain to keep the nice things, so to speak, related to Europe while taking no responsibility.” On the other hand here in the UK, preparations to leave the EU are in full swing.
