EU Parliament Votes In Favour Of BREXIT As Scotland Vows To Rejoin
The European Parliament has approved the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union by voting in its favor.
Twenty-eight country representatives who are Members of the European Parliament (MEP) backed the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement by 621 votes to 49, according to the BBC.
UK is billed to leave the EU on Friday.
Furthermore, UK’s brexit party leader, Nigel Farage said that the EU would no longer put Britain under undue pressure, and as such, the kingdom would now work for the benefit of the ordinary British people.
“There is a historic battle going on now across the West, Europe, America and elsewhere.
“It is globalism against populism, and you may loathe populism…but it’s becoming very popular.
“And it has great benefits, no more financial contributions, no more European court of Justice, no more common Fisheries policy, no more being talked down to, no more being bullied,” he added.
According to him, “that’s it, it is all over; finished.”
But the representative of the Scottish National Party, Allen Mcleod, hinted that Scotland would return back to the union.
“On Friday, Scotland would be dragged out of the EU against the democratic wishes of our people.
“And when the moment comes for Scotland to rejoin the EU, I hope this parliament will welcome us in that same spirit of European solidarity,” she said.
Also, the European Affairs Minister, Andreja Metelko-Zgombić said members of EU were “sad to see a member state leave”.
The withdrawal agreement covers the following main areas: money, citizens’ rights, border arrangements and customs and the law as well as the mechanisms for resolving disputes which is within the powers of the European Court of Justice.
THE WHISTLER reported that the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, had announced that a “great new deal” that will ensure the realization of Brexit was in place.
