Believe it or not, the UK's government is currently just as big a dumpster fire as the U.S. because of Brexit.
The UK has just more than two months before it’s due to leave the EU, and there’s no clear idea what that might look like. Everything from its immigration policy, to its safety regulations, to its labor laws, have been formed by its membership of the EU and both parties want to make a deal for what the exit to establish what the new relationship will look like. But what would happen if Britain left the EU without a deal in place?
Leaving without a deal in place or “crashing out” could have serious implications for Britain. There are approximately 800,000 British citizens who live in the EU, and they might lose their right to work post-Brexit. A million people could lose their jobs and Northern Ireland could face rolling blackouts, according to some reports. Having no agreements in place in the wake of Brexit could also mean food and medicine shortages and would affect travel and immigration.
Britain’s deadline to leave the EU is March 29, so far a proposed Brexit deal has been overwhelmingly defeated in Parliament. So nothing has been set for the impending separation — giving the U.S. a run for its money in terms of dysfunction in the new year.
