THE BREXIT issue has created Chaos for both sides in the negotiations, between the EU and Britain !
Basically one can question whether the BREXIT issue was launched before either side was really ready.
On the EU side one can even question whether anyone there really knows how the EU will evolve during the coming years !
In particular, the "revealing" remarks by Jean-Claude Juncker last week, that every EU country must adopt the EURO as its currency, was typical of his previous unguarded assertions. His statement was immediately watered down by Angela Merkel. She at present is fighting for her re-election as Chancellor of Germany. The General Election is this coming weekend !
Juncker's idea of the ultimate type of EU seems to be like one Country with one currency with omnipotent and centralised powers to rule. The current type of EU already allows each non EURO Country to manage its currency and allows all countries significant local powers to tax and run their countries.
Several EU countries like Britain, do not want to adopt the EURO as their currency. This is one important reason why Juncker wants Britain out of the EU as soon as possible but ..... not before having paid an astronomic Financial penalty to get out !
BREXIT is also causing chaos in Britain for other reasons. Theresa May was chosen as Prime Minister after the unexpected and close majority for BREXIT in the Referendum vote. She immediately adopted this divine mission and is fervently negotiating, to get Britan out of the EU but also to reduce the astronomic cost of the leaving penalties demanded by the EU.
Alas, the popularity of Theresa May and that of the Conservative Party, has slumped. Does May ever hear or listen to the people around her who are having second thoughts about BREXIT ! In fact, is there now in Britain still a majority in favour of leaving the EU ?
But, to survive the EU must now quickly update its Treaties : there is an urgent clamour for this to be done. The main bones of contention are Immigration, Terrorism and the Insecurity in the EU, all provoked by the Islamic State aggression in the Middle East !
Finally, it is high time for Brussels to define the form of the future EU it proposes to adopt ! After that, will there still be a BREXIT and/or other EXITS ?
