Storyboard Text

  • On July 23, 2016 a vote was held to determine if the United Kingdom (UK) should secede from the European Union (EU), a collection of European countries tied together in a partnership. This movement is called "Brexit".
  • Leave
  • The vote resulted in 51.9% "leave and 48.1% "remain".
  • Remain
  • So why did the UK want to depart the EU? They did so for economic and immigration issues. 
  • A majority of the population voted because they wanted to reduce immigration, with a goal of under 100,000. Being a member of the EU, it allowed members to cross borders easily, and eventually gain a residency status.
  • The UK didn't like the economic policies imposed by the EU. The EU had a single market, meaning that anyone within the EU can start a business or get a job in any EU country.
  • The United Kingdom is set to secede on March 29, 2019. There is still a lot of discourse of ownership over Britain's subcountries and how the departure will work.
