Brexit bothers

Tuesday 09th April 2019 14:33 EDT

Now that the time for Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU), is fast approaching, there are still uncertainities surrounding the whole issue and people are talking of a second referundum. Since there are concerns about our exit from the mighty EU, why not go for a second referundum? 

After all, the first referendum, when people voted 51 to 49 in favour of coming out was not very convincing. A second referundum may well produce a more convincing outcome. Better be sure now than regret later. Brexit has already taken its toll  causing the resignations of a number of ministers. 

Also, businesses are closing down and jobs are being lost. There are demands for the Revocation of  article 50 and going back to square one. While the negotiations are continuing and time of our exit from the European Union (EU), is fast approaching, let us pause and contemplate on what could happen if we were to leave the EU without a deal. 

Would that mean that there would be a shortage of medicines? Would diabetics die en masse without the import of life saving mediciens, say for example, insulin? Would there be a famine like situation without the import of grains and meat from the EU countries? How would we survive without the import of these essential commodties from Europe?  Even without Britain, EU would remain a force to be reckoned with but Britain may not get easy sailing without the support of the EU.
