Brexit is a terrible idea as the World becomes more connected. I suspect the reason the English people voted to leave the EU was for a return to past glory days, the British Empire. People are becoming more connected today because of the internet and travel, separation is a backwards step. We will soon destroy the planet anyway through global warming, a problem that will require all people to take action.
CNN recently reported that countries who use referendum sometimes have a second on the same issue. Why not have another when details of the split become clear so people can knowingly vote? Personally I think countries should help people through immigration. Perhaps there are limits, it shouldn’t increase crime rates for example, but it’s wrong to choose isolation in the modern world.
Although marginal, Brexit won the vote because of immigration, people sometimes need help. It’s a sad thing to leave your country of birth because of persecution or starvation. Let’s offer a hand.
