Prime Minister May wants full sovereignty for the UK. But then it has to do without the advantages of the EU. The Union lives from the common rules. She must not give it away.
That is why the Prime Minister is concerned: she wants to give her electoral people the greatest possible sovereignty. Sovereignty is determined by May as to the extent to which rules have to be worked out together with other nations, whether compromises are to be made, and how many people are crossing their own borders in this highly mobile world. Until Proposed referendum on United Kingdom membership of the European Union , Britain subjugated – reluctantly – the logic that sovereignty can exercise together with other states in order to gain more freedom and security. Now the British government seeks the salvation in the comprehensibility. This is the legitimate consequence of the Brexit vote.
Alone: The question of the price has not yet been answered. This is the EU’s response. And this answer will decide whether the Union will endure, or whether it will fall according to Trump’s prediction. For if the price of the exit is small, there will be enough imitators who, like the British, retreat into their national shell.
