BREXIT IS NOT A GAME !
British politicians are egoistically playing the future of millions of UK citizens without noticing .. but their responsibilities & consequences will be HUGE if the UK goes for a ‘No-DEAL’ decision !
Official Brexit official date (known since 2017) is Friday 29th March, 2019 in 52 days precisely (This February has only 28 days) !
Tuesday 5th February, 2019 is then D-52 and British MPs are playing like kids in the courtyard, thinking it’s fun to oppose Theresa May’s Deal Solution (402 voted vs her Negociated Deal with EU) whereas they’re playing the future of millions of UK & European citizens, thinking it’s just another political play in the UK parliament… which is not at all the case ! so…if no other compromise between the UK & #EU is signed in this very short 6-week time, it will be a ‘No-Deal’ exit with UK getting out of the bathroom naked, with import times and transport fluidity for goods multiplied by 10+…then Britain will lose
** Direct access to the 475-million EU market with no import duties this far
** Direct access & cooperation in the 700 #EU Cooperation programmes engaged, be they scientific, research, educational, health, forests, fishing, transport…
** Dozens of EU, Asian & US headquarters and banking units in the UK
** Over 600,000 Educated & Highly valuable EU citizens working in the UK, who will turn back to continental Europe, because of lower revenues, political incertitude & headquarters’ job transfers or losses…
We, French people, love Britain and there are thousands of mixed couples with one of them being French & the other British, so there are >30,000 Franco-British and multilingual kids. Obviously, the French people, 600,000 of them expatriated in the UK right now, think ‘Brexit is crazy’, because we, British & French, have built so much together as Europeans for the last 45 years, be that ‘Concorde’ plane, Airbus, the Channel Tunnel, the Eurostar trains and many more brilliant & shared engineering works.
And having a Deal signed NOW is very important, because
** EXIT conditions will be LAW from March 29th and in the next 5-15 years or longer..
** the Europeans will be tougher next time if in the future the UK citizens want to join European Union again. And all entrepreneurs, traders and businessmen in the UK do know for sure that even a ‘not so good DEAL’ is much better than ‘No Deal at all’ !
All the UK citizens do NOW have a POWER, which will be lost in 50 days, that of writing, telling or twitting to their MPs this simple message :
« WE WANT A DEAL with EU, whatever it is, and we want it NOW, for the future, for the jobs, for the health & the security of our kids and grand-kids !
