    BREXIT may never happen

    Brexit was never sustainable. Why? Because Brexit was an act of political expediency by David Cameron to appease the right Wing of Britain’s Conservative Party who are anti European Integration: Europhobe. The Brexit referendum of 2016 backfired, leaving the UK mired in crisis. Now there is a reason most referendums are decided by a 2/3rds […]
