Brexit: An Uncomfortable Assessment of the Current Situation, by Tomáš Prouza

What they are saying in other parts of Europe:

Opinion piece by former Czech state secretary for European Affairs, EU Observer

Let us hope his pessimistic assessment is wrong.

The UK seems to be losing friends at an ever-increasing rate - but this assessment comes from someone deeply committed to European integration.

On Tomáš Prouza

"In 2016 I received the supreme French state decoration, the National Order of the Legion of Honour (Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur), for my work in support of European integration" -

Brexit Is Dead - A Wave of Anger Crashes over Britain, Spiegel Online Editorial

"Investors hate nothing more than uncertainty, but that is exactly what experts are predicting for Britain in the coming years. Uncertainty combined with stunted growth, less trade, higher taxes and worse national health care. As things look now, last week's election was only the first wave of anger that is currently breaking over the country. The worse the times get, the more powerful it will become. And in a few years, it is almost certain that there will be a government interested in rejoining the EU. Which is possible, but the conditions offered are almost sure to be worse."
