One years ago, our primeminister( Thereasa May) announced that,after a national vote, the UK was leaving the EU. This affected the UK in many ways but mostly because it was harder for people to go on holday to countries in Europe. Therefore, this presentation will explain how Brexit Affected the country and how it can possibly bring the UK another crisis.( All information found on google and on further websites).

Trading in Europe began in the 19th century(in 1815) when a shipment of nutmegs from Sumatra arrived in Europe. Since then, contenets all around the world have been trading; usually with their allies. But when 51.9% of the UK voted to leave-against 48.1% to stay- the UK left... without knowing there would be severe consequences.


As you know, over half the country voted for us to leave... but why?

  • We left the EU because: we had to pay billions of pounds to the union every year and most citizens felt like we weren't getting a lot in return.
  • In addition, many people in the world move from poorer to richer countries nowadays. This has made people worry about the free-movement rule, which alows people living in an EU country able o move to another European country, without permission.

This left Europe 2 years to decide the deals they would make with the UK, and if they would still be able to trade and for people to be able to move to an EU country.

May's Deal:

Thereasa May announced that the UK were making a worthy deal to leave the EU: they would give them £40 billion pounds. The EU divorce bill is part of the current Brexit's financial negotiations being made between the EU an the UK.

The EU:

The EU(European Union) is made up of 28 countries. Listed down below:

  • Austria

The union was made after World War 2,to trade things with eachother, in hope that, by trading, there would not be further war between them.

The trading system now is that the UK is enable to trade with the EU, due to the fact that we are leaving next year in April. Our country now trades with non-EU countries and countries in other contestants too, such as: China United States, etc. The UK might still trade with the Eu, but it all depends on what deal Theresa May makes before next April.
