Why Did Brexit Happen In The First Place?
After years of tense negotiations with the EU, ranging from the trade of beef to chocolate, former Prime Minister David Cameron promised to renegotiate Britain’s position in the EU if the Conservatives won the majority at the following election. During this, the UK Independence Party (UKIP) was growing in power amongst voters who shared its critical opinion of the EU. After gaining the most votes in 2015, David Cameron started renegotiating UK/EU relations, focusing on migrant welfare payments, financial safeguards and how Britain can block EU rules.
In the following year, David Cameron declared that a referendum would take place on June 23rd. After more than 30 million British citizens voted, the results leant more towards leaving the EU by only 3.8%, with a vote of 51.9%% to 48.1%. Throughout the referendum, fierce debates were held between UKIP and other political parties like Conservatives and Labour, who were in favour of remaining.
After losing the referendum, David Cameron stepped down. Taking his place, Prime Minister Theresa May quickly activated Article 50 but failed to pass her deal through Parliament. The future of Brexit is unclear, but the damage has already been done. Since the referendum, millions of people have taken to the streets, either marching against the delay to leave or protesting the validity of the results and the future it will give the UK.
