Going through with Brexit would be a terrible result for the UK; its voters should be given another chance to vote on what path to take their country, argues The Guardian in an editorial. They were deceived about the hard truth of leaving the EU during 2016’s referendum. Notions of taking back “our” borders or having extra millions to invest in health care were based on fiction, not fact. Particularly the trajectory of the May government is heading towards big economic pain. The Prime Minister is purposefully running down the clock without offering a concrete plan to force Parliament to back her. This is not what people voted for in the 2016 referendum.
Brexit is leading the UK towards a better economic future with greater independence, believes Gavin Rice of Reaction. With more freedom over tariffs and trade customs, the country will be able to tie its growth to that of emerging economies, not the stagnating EU. Suggestions that the referendum of 2016 should be repeated are outlandish. With the largest turnout in British political history, the people spoke loudly and clearly. Britons wanted more independence and control of their borders, a desire that is valid and needs to be respected. Already’s Britain’s economy is growing. Brexit is not the catastrophe that its critics paint it as.
