The front page article in the FIGARO newspaper today, July 2, 2016 announces that Britain could break up after the Brexit vote ! Is this not wishful thinking ?
Could this Headline Title instead not have been "The EU and EUROZONE could break up if Treaties and objectives are not updated" ?
"Brexit" is on the table, and a "Grexit" finally was recently avoided, but what will be the ongoing cost in the end ? Are there not already other "Exits" threatening the EU ?
The handling of the world-wide invasion of Immigrants heading towards Europe, plus the Refugees from war torn Middle Eastern countries which are fighting Islamic State Extremists, are the main point of dissention in the EU. This unsolved problem also partly explains the unexpected Brexit vote !
For the time being, Brexit is still on the table. No one at present really can know whether the next British Prime Minister will action Article 50 of the 2007 Lisbon Treaty.
What is certainly just as urgent, is to know when the EU will decide to act and thus pacify other countries which also yearn to hold a referendum on an "EXIT" !
