Tens of thousands of people marched on the British Parliament on Saturday, demanding another vote on Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. They wore T-shirts reading “This is what a European looks like” and waved signs urging “Bollocks to Brexit!”
The crowds were sizeable and committed – organisers claimed 100,000 walked down Pall Mall – but the demonstrations were not seismic.
Though a couple of British politicians spoke at Parliament Square to the demonstrators, the leader of the opposition Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, did not. (He was lightly booed when his name was mentioned.) The Labour leadership vaguely supports Brexit, as long as it is good for British workers.
So in keeping with all things about Brexit since the vote in June 2016 to leave the European bloc, the march seemed to do little to bring clarity to Britain’s messy exit from the European bloc.
People marched in central London demanding for a second Referendum. 17 Million Voters, voted to come out of the European Union.
It will take up to two years for negotiations to take place. The main issue is whether Britain will come out with a hard Brexit or a Soft Brexit and remain in the Single Market.
If Britain comes out with a hard Brexit, it will affect foreign Direct investments, many Companies will leave Britain because of high tariffs. Companies like Nissan, Toyota and BMW. Unemployment will be high, the economy will struggle, on one hand Britain will trade with 54 Commonwealth Countries.
Global security, will be affected as well although Britain will remain a member of NATO. Foreign policy, Britain will not be able to be part of policy making at the European Union. Farmers in Wales will be affected because they get subsidies from the European Union. They will be a hard border between Britain and Northern Ireland. Most of the freight to Northern Ireland passes through Britain, tariffs will be high. There are so many things to consider before leaving the European Union.
