UK after the EU referendum

What comes next after UK's decision for leaving the EU?


In this Dossier we present different views and opinions about the next day in EU and UK affairs.


Theresa May showed solidarity to Cameron in the Remain campaign, but stayed in the background during the hectic period.  The fresh Prime Minister, as said by insiders, always had a quite sceptical approach of the EU.

Fresh UK PM May let EU leaders wait and appoints Boris as foreign minister…

Straight after her confirmation as Britain’s new Prime Minister, Theresa May showed her EU colleagues that the rumours that she is going her own way are right.

It is through this prism  that our friends and allies around the world need to see this decision. This is not a march away from free trade (though it is worth to saying that Britain has a massive trade deficit with the EU of about 80 billion a year). It is taking back a degree of control over our country that allies like the US would never have countenanced giving up themselves.

Leaving the EU gives Britain the freedom to thrive

Britain’s decision to leave the EU was received with surprise around the world. It shouldn’t have been. We have the fifth largest economy in the world

Are there any opportunities that come with Brexit? Not really, except for the illusory joy of being able to perhaps host some additional EU agencies or jump a seat in terms of influence in Brussels: + 1 in a EU of 27, instead of 28 States.

Brexit and Eastern Europe: Politics and consequences

Brexit has consequences on Eastern European countries, and the truth is there is more peril than opportunity in this crisis

On the effects of Brexit on the EU e-commerce market, Mr Edwick felt that any current trade surplus that the UK enjoys in e-commerce could be lost. On top of the increased administrative costs that UK operations would be subjected to, there could be a loss of work to abroad.

The UK is currently the most mature e-commerce market in Europe and a front-runner in the digital economy

The same goes for Brexit. Rather than engage, convince and reform as he should have done, Mr Juncker did not take any initiative, to avoid antagonising Mr Cameron and British voters. Already slowed down, several dossiers were put on hold. The UK referendum should have been used as an excellent opportunity for debate about re-structuring the European Union around a two-circle system: the federally-minded Member States in the first circle, and a second circle for countries content with a trading relationship. Far from being a problem, the referendum campaign could have been a chance to re-define and re-organise the EU. Instead…

The day after the night before: Brexit!

On issues big and small, the EU needs to re-build itself from top to bottom. 20 years ago I published “L’Europe à contresens”.

The fundamental flaws of Brexit backers

By: EBR | Monday, June 27, 2016

By now, it has become clear that the heated confrontation in Britain over the issue of Brexit has very little to do with the actual arguments, especially among those who want the UK to leave the European Union when the country votes on the question in a referendum in June.
