The problem of British withdrawal from the European Union, otherwise known as the British Exit (Brexit), turns out it is still not over. The reason was the internal turmoil which led to Prime Minister Theresa May's power at the edge.
All this problem began on June 23, 2016. At that time the British chose to leave the European Union. As a result, the Prime Minister at the time, David Cameron, decided to lay down his position and was replaced by Theresa May.
The European Union consists of 28 member countries, one of which is Britain. They formed a cooperative organization to reduce war and competition, and chose trade as a way out to live in harmony with each other in the Blue Continent.
One of the drafters of the concept was the late former German chancellor, Helmut Kohl. In the 1990s, the European Union grew stronger and became one of the pivots of economic and political power in the world besides the United States, China, and Russia. They have their own currency and parliament.
Even so, some people in the UK initially objected to their joining the European Union. They feel that Britain should be regarded as one of the strongest countries because its colonies are scattered throughout the world.
Because of that they feel full of prestige or objection if they have to join the European Union. Especially if they have to join hands with Germany and France, which is considered a rival ideology.
The year passed finally until 2008. At that time the economic crisis hit Europe and the United States. One by one the country feels its effects, including the United Kingdom. One member of the European Union, Greece, even declared bankruptcy.
One of the requirements to become a member of the European Union is that they have to help each other when one of their colleagues has trouble. It's just that it feels burdensome because each of them also faces the same difficulties in maintaining economic stability.
Since then pressures have begun to emerge that Britain will reconsider their participation in the European Union. The result of the polls two years ago resulted in a British decision to withdraw from the European Union.
It's just that the decision was paid dearly because some in the UK also opposed the Brexit decision. As a result, until now the British government and parliament have clashed.
May's camp wants the UK to leave the European Union in a subtle way, which is to maintain trade relations as close as possible. However, the opposing camp insisted that Britain leave the European Union and actually cut off relations with the bloc.
Meanwhile, the European Union will also not allow Britain to leave unconditionally. On the other hand, new problems arise in Ireland.
When Britain was still joining the European Union, trade with the Republic of Ireland was easy. Now because of these conditions, Ireland is concerned that the trade process will be hampered.
The reason is the possibility that Britain will tighten their borders in Northern Ireland. This was felt to be able to hamper the trade process of the two countries. Ireland is also worried that if security is tightened by the addition of security forces, it will create an atmosphere like the times of conflict in Northern Ireland in the past, where around 3,600 people were killed.
Even so, those who are pro Brexit are more pleased because with that they can freely dictate trade with neighboring countries. However, it is not impossible that the attitude of Britain will be emulated by other EU member states to come out who feel they have never benefited.
