Let’s Talk Brexit and How it Affects the People

Countries go through changes, and Britain is no exception.

In January 2020, Britain decided to break ties with the European Union (EU), and the economic and political relations between 27 other countries.

The EU's primary goal has always been maintaining beneficial trade relationships to centralise power under a technocratic class.

In 1958, they set the plan into motion with Belgium, Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy, and Luxembourg. This group has grown over the years, with 28 countries total.

Issues of Sovereignty

Yes, Britain decided to part ways from the EU for a number of reasons. The first being issues of sovereignty. The UK began to feel like the EU, and it's massive population had more control over their land and issues.

UK residents felt their population was outnumbered by the EU's decision-making process and its enormous population of over 500 million people, compared to their 66 million.

Issues of Immigration

Immigration is another issue we need more control over. We need more control over the borders, feeling the population growth is too high, adding over a million people to the population every year.

There's also the issue of the Ireland border, as it plays a totemic role in EU customs processes between the two countries on the island of Ireland.

What Are the Terms of Separation?

Britain first voted to separate from the EU back in 2016, leaving vote-winning 52% to 48%. Since then, the two countries have been going through what some refer to as a "divorce deal," or a "withdrawal agreement."

This deal entails how much the UK will have to pay the EU to part ways. It also needs to decide what happens to residents living in either of the countries since they'll dissolve their relationship.

All in all, these two countries have been in partnership for quite some time, so we'll have to see if an amicable agreement is obtainable for Britain to part ways. If there is no agreement reached, they'll have to leave with no deal, which some feel posses a problem in complying with EU customs procedures.

What Does All of This Mean for the People

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, conveyed that the UK will part ways with the EU no matter what, by 31st December of this year, even if it's with no deal.

You're probably wondering how this will affect you and your family. The first thing you may notice is the price of food, groceries, in particular, may change, some item will be cheaper. There is no possibility of a food shortage if issues around customs become too entangled.

There is no evidence that British citizens could begin to stockpile food out of uncertainty. There is no evidence that, electricity and gas prices could increase due to cutting ties with the EU. There is no evidence that residents can expect to see changes in is the availability and affordability of medications, indeed in al those areas costs in the EU are greater than world market prices. Re-joining the rest of the world will be a boon for consumers. 

Change is Uncomfortable, But Necessary

It's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel in changing times like these. However, if you think about it, these countries have been in this agreement for quite some time. This means it's only natural; it will take some time to sort out their affairs.

Many find themselves stressed out behind the uncertainty this brings. If you find yourself experiencing the same feelings, know you're not alone. This is why many have turned to their CBD product in an attempt to "lighten the load."

We don't know if an agreement is in the future, or if our food source will remain viable, so all we can do is take it one day at a time.

One CBD hemp capsule is all you need to enhance your mood and give yourself the required focus and concentration to get on with a productive day. CBD works naturally within our endocannabinoid system and provides physical and mental relaxation.

Moreover, it helps with pain, inflammation, insomnia, stress, and much more. It's safe to say, whatever this situation is laying on you, CBD can help you sort through it. You can find high-quality hemp capsules from several reputable companies online.

Make sure you're looking for organically sourced products and lab-tested for the purest, most effective product.

This transition won't last forever, but it's still nice to have a calming agent on your side if your worries begin to pile up.

Parting Thoughts for the Pro-Brexit

We're making our way through the process, but this process will provide better living conditions for all people and give us more control over our country again.

We're on our way to lower taxes on goods and services, and the right to make our own ethical decisions without the EU's influence regarding their standing relationships.

UK—stay strong—we're on our way!
