British voters said a resounding no to the EU

Британские избиратели сказали решительное «нет» Евросоюзу

The German media (Der Spiegel, Die Zeit, Der Standard, Die Presse) compare the past in the UK parliamentary elections since the earthquake, the results of which have far-reaching consequences for the UK and Europe. German and Austrian observers distinguish the following principal points:— English voters was strongly in favor of Prexit. If the European press wrote that the British electorate is almost evenly split “for” and “against” membership in the European Union, now says the final and last word: the British did not want to have anything to do with Europe, except for trade in. Voters chose certainty and sovereignty — even at the cost of the temporary reduction in living standards. The process initiated by the referendum on Breccia in 2016, came to its logical end, leaving only the technical details of the output.— The conservatives, led by Boris Johnson won a historic victory, which is compared to the triumph of Margaret Thatcher in the elections of 1983 and 1987. Now the conservatives have an absolute majority in Parliament and not in need of allies. The chief in the current election campaign was the issue of Breccia, and the mandate of trust, which was awarded to Johnson, means that Breaksit will be tough. The main reason is that the conservatives completely rule out the supremacy of the European court and demand a full British sovereignty. Customs and other practical matters they wish to discuss — after Breccia. No one doubts that these negotiations will be extremely difficult.— Obviously, the example of the UK can be very contagious to other EU member States, where national interests prevail over European. For example, for Italy, which is suffocating in the grip of the Eurozone, or for Poland, which strongly proclaims the priority of their national wealth over the European. Without Britain, the EU creates a clear bias in the direction of the East, and the original idea of the “new great Empire of Charlemagne” or Napoleon can turn into a kind of Byzantium. The French President Makron has already made it clear that the further “Balkanization” of the European project. As a result, the European Union could return to its original “hard core” — France, Germany, the Benelux and Austria.— Nicola Sturgeon and her Scottish national party has shown very good results in the last election. This means that there will be the inevitable new referendum on Scottish independence. This process will lead sooner or later to the independence of Scotland that would mean the end of the United Kingdom.— In Northern Ireland are losing ground to radical unionists, advocating for the preservation of Ulster in the UK. In this province there is a change of generations, and young voters are increasingly in favor of Union with the Republic of Ireland. Thus, the output of Ulster from the United Kingdom — is also a matter of time. In domestic policy, the UK has become obvious not only a monumental failure of the labour party, but sets her possible departure from the political scene altogether. It is not only extremely unpopular figure of its leader, Jeremy Corbin, but in the objective social dynamics. Since 2001 the labour party lost 5 million votes, they have ceased to be the party of the working class and lost his support. This is the natural process for the whole of Western Europe. There is a marginalization of the Social democratic party of Germany, Socialist party of France and the collapse of almost all leftist movements on the continent — with the exception of Spain, which stands out because of its historical “lag”.— If we consider the results of the elections and the victory of Johnson in more global aspects, they coincide with General dynamics for “de-globalization”, the priority of national interests and, ultimately, the abandonment of collective structures, which include the European Union, NATO, WTO and other enterprises that emerged after the Second world war. This process was especially accelerated after the US President was Donald trump. At the same time it is the triumph of politics, a populist and nationalist course, which is manifested in a new style of propaganda, which in the West have forgotten since the days of Hitler and Mussolini.
