The argument to keep Britain in the EU, by "Bremain" has been a passionate one. With finance experts citing that the UK will lose out on £xxx amounts of business, investing, interest, trade and personal finance. This has been met with counter arguments from the "Brexit" camp that has disagreed stating that Britain is so great that we can withstand it and build our own economy. How coming out of globalisation and a global economy can be forward thinking is a mystery to me, but hey...
What hasn't been considered so much is what the EU wants. It has been announce this week that the EU economy is on the way to recovery, is finally back on the way up while the £sterling is actually losing value with evidence of another recession looming. It is understandable that the uncertainty of what the UK will do has put finance decisions on hold causing a shift in the value of the pound but this pattern has not had much media coverage. Is there a reason that the public are not being told? What is the effect of the pound losing value while the Euro gains value? Would the UK be able to trade alone against a stronger Europe while in "recession"? How does this change the whole debate? When the £sterling is no longer strong against the Euro, Would this change the Brexit debate completely? Is the Eurozone actually better off without the UK?
