LONDON — As London grapples with the fact that we’ve now left the European Union (or at least are quickly headed that way now that Article 50 has been triggered), there are plentiful questions more than answers. Up first, many are questioning whether or not Prime Minister Theresa May may “have been heavily influenced by sovereignty and the monarchy”. That idea doesn’t seem that far fetched considering …
“Let’s state one thing loud and clear: we are not leaving the European Union only to give up control of immigration all over again. And we are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. That’s not going to happen,” she said earlier this year amid meetings with EU negotiators.
Secondly, Theresa May is confidently refusing to cooperate with Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon about their own concerns and recently renewed efforts to bounce out of the United Kingdom itself. Sturgeon’s leading party renewed a referendum last night to ensure that a new vote would be held to effectively leave the United Kingdom.
“Brexit – especially the hard Brexit shaped by May’s inability to shake off the agenda of the Ukip-tinged right wing of her own party – threatens to be an act of self-harm on a scale barely understood,” she said in a Guardian op-ed.
