Ever since 1973. the island of Great Britain has been part of a 28-country union called the European Union. The EU is like an elite club who try to bring Europeans together and make trade easier.
The European Union: You can't sit with us!
European Union Meeting
Although Great Britain was a loyal member of the EU, tensions were rising around 2008 as other EU countries failed economically, causing Great Britain to be skeptical about heavily integrating with the rest of the EU.
On Thursday, June 23, 2016, Britain had an official vote, and leaving the EU won 51.9% to 48.1%.
COUNTDOWN TO BREXIT
Now, "Brexit" or "British Exit" of the EU is formally scheduled to happen at 11pm on Friday, March 29, 2019.
Since the decision to leave the EU has caused Britain to lose some momentum money-wise since the Brexit vote, which is why many people think that Brexit will be the downfall of trade and goods in Britain, and are stocking up in food for when March 2019 comes.
But some Europeans think that because of other countries' financial crises, Britain can't have anyone to drag them down, and autonomy is better for Britain to flourish.
ALL THE SINGLE LADIES!! (ALL THE SINGLE LADIES)
SAY GOODBYE TO THE EU!!!
All the other countries upset about Brexit are just jealous!!!1!!
