In the week before the Brexit Referendum, in June 2016, appeared in the British magazine "the Spectator" with a butterfly on the title page. The insect unfolded its wings in the colors of the Union Jack. It is similar to cocoon, the breaking ed at the end of the side walls, the Blue of the EU, and the star rose from a cube. "Out," enthused the dial, "and into the world." Get out of the EU, to distant climes: the message of The Brexit advertising "Spectator" was clear for everybody at that time. The annoying case of the Union should strip off the butterfly, to delight in the wide world of new freedom.
It was an idea that many Britons spoke – together with the brilliant slogan "Take Back Control", you shall decide on everything. Known masses were won by the Brexiteers also in the Referendum, if only barely, with 52 to 48 percent. Two and a half years later, but that's pretty emblematic of the new Confidence twitches, only matte with the wings. Instead of the dreamt-of freedom of upbeat dream ended up in a world of harsh realities, in the bright light of the disillusionment.
In fact, what Brexit-Promoter Boris Johnson is threatening his countrymen at the time to be in dazzling colors ausm – old, this Winter for the British to be a nightmare if your political representatives are more on nothing can of some and the Nation in March "over the cliff jumps". Not only is the government planning to hoard for "just in case" food, drugs in the chart machine to enter the loop of special police units to maintain order in England's streets to turn off and on the protection of the tank of the regular troops muster.
By all reputable Economists and financial experts of the country is watching the British also say that any Form of Brexit would cost you in the short and long - term assets. Banks and large corporations have stopped complaining about the possible dangers. You are looking at long new, profitable shores beyond the British Isles. Also, the deputies, the silent yet entered, now alarmed. Also you know that in the Referendum by 2016, nobody voted to be poorer for it – let alone to the awakening of a national emergency. Diplomats are pulling their hair out, because your country has already lost its international Reputation and influence, instead of, as promised, "the great" Britain, it once was.
visions of a new Size played an important role, as the Brexiteers in 2016, called for disengagement from the EU. A return to the proud privateer days of the Elizabethan Era promised pardon politicians like Johnson an electorate, which was the "bureaucrats in Brussels", European Integration, and immigrant of Polish craftsmen tired. Nostalgia caught, especially in the elderly and conservative voters. What helped the Brexiteers, moreover, was the fact that since Ted Heath's hardly ever a British government of the island's population of the advantages of British membership of the EU.
Between the metropolis and the province are worlds apart. The old and the Young is a gap.
The concept of Europe was occupied almost always negative. He stood for political paternalism, foreign arrogance, and incomprehensible languages, annoying directives. "Europe" was to blame for everything that went wrong in their own country. A highly politicized legal press, as you know, no other Western European country, held this idea of day-to-day life. Boris Johnson even used this press once when in Brussels, Rapporteur, and as a tireless Fake-News-producer of that time. Then, shortly before the Referendum, refugees and migrants, flows to Europe, ergo, it was the Brexiteers easy, to channel internal Frustration, to an external destination. And Frustration it lacked in those days by no means.
Deaf to the complaints
in Many places, there was a lot of anger against the political Elite. Finally, this Elite had left the country with harsh austerity, and a still more flagrant social inequality. Ironically, Eton pupil, David Cameron, deaf to the complaints of the needy in the country, took part in the Referendum as a lawyer for the Pro-EU side.
Since the Referendum has been discussed in the UK a lot about why, especially in the disadvantaged regions of the country for Brexit voted. Globalization, continuous removal of the industry, credit crisis, recession and Cameron's martial reduction of public funds set the stage for what happened in 2016. Characteristically, the Desire for separation from the EU in the poorest UK regions is also now, at the beginning of 2019, only reluctantly, although long ago these regions more than the others are suffering under a Brexit, if it comes to that. Only in recent times each of Brexit-voters, especially in Labour constituencies, the concerns came from. Your decision could have such consequences, as they are now, had you said no Brexiteer.
Hope on the Pro-European youth
Some who voted for Brexit, have not been able to since then, shake off the feeling that celebrities Brexit-the hardliners were looking for the exit from the EU for their own campaign against taxes and the welfare state, to use against environmental regulations and protection. Because the hardest group of the Brexit-banner carrier recruited today from Thatcheristen and proponents of a free market economy, for the Brexit only a vehicle. These politicians of the Tory Right hoped that the disengagement from the EU, their own economic ideology is easier to enforce. For you Brexitannien should be "the new Singapore" in front of the coasts of Europe: a low-wage country, a Magnet for the big money from all over the world.
disillusioned Brexit-voters as well as to the register of electors up-and-coming at the end of the Pro-European youth builds anyway, who hopes this day to a second Referendum in the UK. A new Referendum around may, soon, no way, would, however, the gaps are not closing in the country.
Nothing is untouched
Because dangerously low, the British society is divided. Urban, international city, thriving areas compared to the rural and neglected regions, the old industrial zones, and the dying seaside resorts, in which the aversion against the EU holds more persistent than elsewhere. Everywhere, the divide. Between the metropolis and the province are worlds apart. Old and Young, home owner and property separates a gap.
In the current Chaos, and in the hasty sequence of political events is hardly in the British society, the institutions of the country and the cohesion of its parts now has changed to estimate to what extent the Brexit. Nothing is left of the recent dramatic upheavals unaffected. And still no one is able to say how the Drama ends, beyond the dream.
