Cameron’s Failed Brexit Gamble

What kind of IDIOT, calls a referendum on something so important as the EU, without ensuring that there is clear and concise information about the consequences of remaining or leaving and more importantly, an EXIT PLAN in case the public voted to leave (which they did)

Granted, we were lied to from the outset, Edward Heath KNEW we were agreeing to Political Union, NOT Economic Union back in 1975, but kept it from the public, along with Margaret Thatcher.

We DID NOT sign up for Maastricht, the Lisbon Treaty, the EURO, freedom of movement, or TTIP!

David Cameron is guilty of NEGLIGENCE for being so arrogant, that he thought the public could be frightened in to remaining. Once the decision was made, what did he do? He resigned, leaving no exit plan, Boris Johnson did not have one either as he was not really fighting to leave, he was going through the motions, neglecting to point out the important facts, thinking that we would remain and he could take hte moral high ground.....well guess what?

IT BACKFIRED!!!

There are likely to be a number of political twists and turns as the UK frees itself from the shackles of Brussels rule.

Here is a look at the process that Britain has to go through before finally quitting the European bloc.

What happens this summer?

Theresa May, Andrea Leadsom and Michael Gove are setting out their visions for post-Brexit Britain in a bid to become the next Prime Minister.

David Cameron’s successor will take up office by September 9 and will be responsible for creating the roadmap for Britain’s exit of the EU.

In the meantime, work is already under way behind the scenes in order to get Britain in the best position for the tough EU negotiations ahead.

Oliver Letwin, who has been appointed to lead the so-called Brexit unit, said the next Prime Minister and their Government would decide the exit strategy.

The Tory cabinet minister said they are preparing the ground so that the incoming administration can conduct the “complicated and arduous” negotiations.

This involves putting together a team of experts, recruiting trade negotiators and researching all the Brexit options available.

The Government has been criticised for not doing contingency planning before the Brexit victory in the EU referendum on June 23.

Over in Brussels, the EU is also putting together a Brexit negotiating team and deciding whether the European Council or Commission will lead talks.

Belgian diplomat Didier Seeuws has been tasked with running the Council’s special Brexit taskforce.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has banned any informal talks with UK officials “behind closed doors in smoke-filled rooms”.

What happens in the autumn?

The next Prime Minister will set out their plans over when to invoke Article 50, which will start the timer on two years of exit talks.

Mrs Leadsom wants to trigger Article 50 as soon as possible, but the other candidates want to play for time and wait until 2017.

There is uncertainty over what exactly will happen next because Britain will be the first country in history to use this mechanism to withdraw from the EU.

All of the Tory leadership candidates have ruled out having a snap general election this autumn, but it still remains a possibility.
