So, the majority of British voters have voted to leave the EU.
It could have been so much different if it was not due to the stupidity and myopia of the EU officials.
This is what the EU should have said :
Yes, the UK can put a cap of 50,000 immigrants who want to work in the UK per annum.
Yes, welfare payments can be paid but by the country of origin.
So, Polish workers who have a wife and children living in Warsaw or anywhere else in Poland get benefits from Poland and not the UK.
Yes, we recognise that the UK have debts of about £100 Billions.
They cannot sustain unrestricted movement of people from the EU.
Yes, the UK can stop economic migrants.
Simple and sensible is it not ?
The tragedy is that the EU is so short sighted. If only they had woken up to the reality of population movements, the vote in the Referendum might have been different.
I believe that we need a relook at our execution of Democracy.
On major issues a 75% vote in favour should be needed . The USA system is more realistic for major changes in Laws.
The sadness of the Brexit vote is that we could have had a better solution. However, the reality is that David Cameron worked hard over 4 years to get the EU to make sensible concessions. He got some minor changes from the EU.
If you want to blame anyone about the Referendum, blame the EU for their stupidity.
Also, blame the Stay Campaign for making some outrageous threats and doom and gloom.
If Scotland wish to stay in the EU they will find that the financial burden is so great that their standard of living will decline.
So lick your wounds Stay Campaigners. Let us go forward with hope and determination. Remember, we are still Europeans.
