From February 1 2020, Britain has left the European Union. The Brexit referendum comes into effect. This is a Victory for the Democracy in the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom has been a member of the European Economic Community (EEC) or Common Market, the forerunner to the European Union, in 1973, along with the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom). A referendum on continued membership of the Common Market was held in 1975, with 67.2% of the population voting in favour of Britain remaining a member.
The Brexit was declared by the government after a referendum. The United Kingdom European Union membership referendum, commonly referred to as the EU referendum, or the Brexit referendum, took place on 23 June 2016. From the 72% registered voters 52% said Leave and 48% said Remain. The planned referendum was included in the Queen’s Speech on 27 May 2015.
The main cause of the Brexit is the “ever closer union”. The European integration process faced a major defeat with the failed Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe and euro-skeptical opinions gained more impact overall. The role of public opinion had been lower before but gained importance with state referendums, as in the rejection of the constitution by French and Dutch voters in 2005.
With executing the Brexit referendum there is a Victory for the Democracy in the United Kingdom. With not executing the NO of the referendum in The Netherlands and France their governments have declined their Democracy. They have chosen for a Bureaucratic Dictatorship. The citizens of France and The Netherlands have had enough of it. Revolt is rising.
The NEXIT is rising. The Dutch government does not call the European Constitution (which will establish the European State) a Constitution but a Treaty. By doing this the Dutch government does not honor the honest Democracy. The Dutch will be pay more and more. The Dutch pensions are forced to calculate the risks with the ECB 30-yr Euro swap which had a minimum of almost zero in 2019. The pension negative result of the ECB rate downfall in 2019 was 18%. The average positive profit of their stock investment was 18%. The Dutch government dictates the Dutch pension funds to calculate with the not realistic ECB rate. With it the Dutch pensions are too less. The Dutch government promises purchasing power, but year after year the purchasing power does not increase.
Some foolish Dutch laws has given a foundation with only a few members the right to ordain the Dutch government to execute the CO2 decline of 5% in the next year. This due the EU Constitution. From it all building procedures are on hold. Many people cannot find an affordable house. The Dutch have experienced an immigration flood of more than 100.000 immigrants each year, due to the leaking borders and procedures of the EU. The Dutch government is out of control and will fall in 2020.
