Since that fateful day, there have been many doom and gloom forecasts for Britain. Some say they will not be able to trade as freely as when they were in the EU (European Union), others say it’s just bad for Britain, perhaps without even knowing why. Boris Johnson on the other hand sees a very positive possibility for Britain.
Mr Johnson said it was “overwhelmingly in the economic interests of the other EU countries to do a free-trade deal, with zero tariffs and quotas, while we extricate ourselves from the EU law-making system”.
Some facts are that the global stock market has not plunged tremendously as it was predicted to, the FTSE is higher than when the vote took place, and there has been no emergency budget activated.
Britain now can do free trade deals with many countries in the world, many of which are already applying. And she can supply Europe in leadership on security and other areas but at a purely intergovernmental level.
Britain’s future may shine brighter yet.
