Brexit 2020 …You won’t find another deal as good as this

Notwithstanding the difficult road ahead ,of one year of challenging negotiations ,the departure from the European Union ,Britain has achieved the main Brexit purpose objectives.

The key reason for withdrawal was the issue of free movement of citizens of other member states of the European Union to UK.

As a matter of fact ,no other country in Europe attracts more EU and non EU immigration than Britain, which also happens to be the ultimate destination for the illegal migration filtering into the  European space ,from all corners of the world .

Statistics indicate that Britain attracts an average of 47% EU nations migration ,compared with 53 % from non EU countries.

This quest for new life opportunities impacts all UK job levels ,from highly skilled professionals to untrained labor.

British voters manifested their dissatisfaction with the emigration policies and free movement of citizens within EU

The chase for top echelon employment makes much more difficult for UK citizens to compete with the best specialized labour contenders from the rest of Europe .

British voters manifested their dissatisfaction with the emigration policies of consecutive governments, not only in the Brexit referendum in 2016, but also in the two latest snap elections, which brought  Boris Johnson to power with unprecedented  Parliament and public level support.

After the main objective of Brexit being achieved ,Britain will  now do their best to establish a preferential trade agreement European Single Market ,from which it does not want to sever ties.

The other “trump “card , is the British Pound , which  UK has kept up their sleeve all the time ,during the “poker game” of cohabiting , for so many years, in the European financial  markets .

The second most important consequence of Brexit is the possibility of opening the doors for a unification of Ireland.

The December election results had already shown that the Northern Ireland Unionist party ,the loyalists to the Queen and the United Kingdom ,had the lowest electoral support ever , while  the Republicans that want the unification, had highest backing from the voters ,which indicates  that the integration may happen sooner than later.

The economic ties between the Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic are too strong to be ignored.

Most of the agricultural production of Northern Ireland ,mainly dairy ,are sold a daily cross the border in the Irish Republic , an European Market member to which the North will also , for all practical terms, will continue to belong.

The Irish problem that was a thorn in British politics , seems to be on the way to be solved by itself ,without much Westminster interference.

The most difficult challenge that Boris Johnson has to face is the Scottish independence aspirations ,which was a problem that existed long before Brexit issue.

Also in this issue economics may play a stronger card than politics and ideology .

All in all Britain won’t find another deal as good as this
