I cannot believe “Brexit” is actually happening. I cannot believe the stupidity of our government. It is an historic mistake that will set our country back in so many ways. The UK is a small country that needs to be part of a larger union. We don’t have an empire anymore.
I cannot believe that May is seeing this through after a majority of just 51.9% voted to Leave. Half of the country does not want this. Triggering Article 50 based on this one result is breathtakingly rash. In the months since the result in June 2016, and after the countless news stories detailing how the country will be affected, I imagine a lot of people who voted Leave will have realised that they should not have. A second referendum should be held to make absolutely sure that this is what the country wants. The first referendum was built upon the blatant lies and misconceptions orchestrated by Farage and UKIP. People voted to Leave because of their “concerns” about immigration without realising the countless ways we are connected to the EU.
May and her government should be acting in the best interests on the United Kingdom and not the so-called “will of the people”. After all, the referendum was only a large opinion poll. Leaving the EU is a huge, huge decision and should not be done after just one referendum.
