The average person in Britain pays £220.00 per year for EU Membership, but after the country voted 51.9% to 48.1% in favour of leaving the EU, the date (UKIP leader Nigel Farage now wants 23rd June declared as a national holiday), there will be no longer need to do so. The decision will bring unmountable equilibrium to the anti-democratic unelected bureaucrats in the ivory tower of the EU headquarters in Brussels and its stature and reputation, but it has already drastically moved the spectrum of UK politics after the vote was officially announced at 07:00 on the morning of Friday 24th June 2016.
In the midst of a turn-out of 72.2%, Prime Minister David Cameron tendered his resignation stepping-down as Prime Minister the following morning, coming into effect in October. In truth, mutiny within the Prime Minister's own political camp with high rankings MPs, notably Michael Gove - Secretary of State for Justice, following failures from Cameron in his Parliamentary manifesto to maintain an array of promises including uncontrollable migration saved a 'Section 21' being issued to number 10.
382 constituencies and 12 regions geographically across Britain voted substantially (17,410,742 to 16,141,241), to leave the formerly known 'Common Market' when it only had nine member states. The home of the financial sector (London – 59.9%), Scotland (facing a second independence referendum) and Northern Ireland voted to remain in the EU, but the rest of the country, including the Eurosceptic second city (Birmingham - 50.4%) alongside the rest of the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside and surprisingly Wales decided to stand-up and revolt against the power of the House of Commons despite strongly worded warnings from Conservative Party MP and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osbourne, a supporter of the 'remain' campaign'. David Cameron and the 'Remain' campaign never stood a chance.
Former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, initially became the bookmakers' ante-post favourite to become the new Prime Minister of Britain and leader of the Conservative Party, before his former Brexit ally Michael Gove declared him a liability and shockingly backtracked and declared his intentions to run. Mr. Johnson, who once unintentionally nearly caused an international incident playing rugby against schoolchildren in Tokyo, Japan has since declared himself out of the running, with his former ally (Michael Gove) and Home Secretary Theresa May now the two current front-runners.
One of the key areas of Brexit was one of Cameron's self-admitted false promises, the uncontrollable migration across Britain (during the 2014-2015 year 183,000 migrants entered Britain from other EU countries to Britain) and more than half of net migration from the EU came to the UK.
Australia's trialled and tested points-based immigration system inducted into the country's political system in 1989, most recently updated in 2011, is a variation to Britain's current uncontrollable and unsustainable UK's points-based immigration system considered as the alternative by Brexit.
The minimum 60 point criteria required to fulfil and therefore be awarded an Australian Visa involve being under the age of 50 (to be between the ages of 25-32 individuals start with 30 points and zero points if you're between the age of 45-49).
Further criteria expected to be abided by prospective applicants must be to have a basic understanding of English academic competency, an acceptable employment history, (either in Australia or overseas) and an occupational status is also an important, professional and manual work earn more recollection than youth workers and decorators.
The Australian 'Department of Immigration' constitutes the programme as intended to “Be designed to target migrants who have skills or outstanding abilities that will contribute to the Australian economy” and to fill labour shortages.”
The UK is within one of the top five countries of origin for immigrants who migrant to Australia.
In February 2008 under the leadership of Gordon Brown, the Labour party introduced the UK's points-based immigration system. The current updated tier brought in under the coalition formed in 2010 works under a four-tier scheme with reference to criteria for individuals. Workers are considered under the following basis, capped at 1000 per year for 'high-value' individuals, 'skilled workers' e.g. “jobs not able to be done by UK or EEA worker, intra-company transfers, ministers of religion or sports-persons” and students in either full-time primary, secondary or high-education.
Furthermore, under tier two requirements an individual must have a specific job offer and be able to reach a total of 70 points. New legislation will come under effect with the UK, non-EU based passports when the UK negotiate to leave the EU.
In an extravagant development after Brexit prevailed the FTSE 100 dropped £100bn, the biggest single points loss since 1984, blue-chip companies became MORE valuable than before the decision to leave the EU was formally confirmed to the anticipated public. The pound, after initially dropping to its lowest rate in 30 years (worth a meagre $1.31 compared to the US Dollar), rose back to a steady currency the FTSE 100 at the close of business on Friday 24th June was worth 6,204 points, after opening at 5,805. Drop in the value of the GBP was comparable to 'Black Wednesday' in 1992, but was soon distinguished as premature scaremongering.
The Bank of England confirmed if the country boarded on the lines of orienteering on the realms of another recession, a £250bn back-up fund was there ready to be used.
In an aspect of trade relations with countries outside of the EU, Indian policymakers believe New Delhi could integrate a new trade agreement with Britain. Companies such as Welspun Group, textile and pipe manufacturer with a revenue of £2.25bn per year), would open new opportunities and the potential upheaval of unlimited 'red band tape'. Talks between the EU and India for a trade deal began over 10 years ago but stalled and nothing subsequently materialised due to a ban on generic drugs.
Trade deals, which were previously unattainable, until being sanctioned by 27 other EU members can now be done with countries such as Australia, New Zealand and America etc and already New Zealand have offered an 'olive branch' to Britain in the form of his best negotiators to get the more democratic deal out of leaving the EU.
Britain is the second largest contributor to the EU, behind Germany, but after Margaret Thatcher successfully regained a rebate to today equivalents to £4.86bn from the EU to Britain, no one knows really knows the real value of what Britain send to the EU each week. The UK's contribution to the EU, based on figures from 2015 is £7.4bn, (£17.81bn paid by the UK to EU compared to the EU's contribution to Britain of £10.76m).
Unelected EU democrats in Brussels, Donald Tusk (President of the European Council, who earns £235,000 per annum), Martin Schulz (President of the European Parliament - £227,000 PA) and Jean-Claude Juncker (President of the European Commission - £245,000 PA) allowed EU Law to overrule UK Law and therefore control if Britain deporting foreign criminals into vast uncertainty. Britain's decision to leave the EU subsequently gives freedom back from unelected judges court so deportation can now occur fairly.
Now that the dust has settled and the main two political parties in the country are looking for new leaders, due to one individual's resignation and the other facing a no-confidence vote from within his own party, Britain is still strong despite no longer being in the EU, not officially, but expected to be confirmed sooner than the two year time scale and will be able to bring a stronger argument to the table when it comes to leaving the EU.
