Many people are still trying to come to terms with the decision this country has taken to leave the EU. They are understandably worried that leaving a club of countries that buy nearly half of Britain’s exports will have far reaching consequences for all of us. These consequences might include a less vibrant economy, which means fewer jobs, lower tax receipts and probably extra austerity. The Scots, most of whom voted for Remain, they fear, will want to break away from the United Kingdom – although this will prove highly problematic for them with such low oil receipts and fears from other EU members facing powerful independence movements such as Catalonia in Spain. Meanwhile across the channel, other Eurosceptic nations are mobilising, further threatening the EU as an institution, an institution that has helped keep the peace in Europe for over half a century.
