Brexit is short for "British exit." It refers to a vote taken on June 23, 2016, in which British voters voted to leave the European Union. The vote could have profound consequences for Britain, the EU, and the global economy. Britain has been a member of the European Union (or its predecessor, the European Economic Community) since 1973. But a series of crises have shaken British confidence in the EU. In 2014, Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron promised a referendum on British exit from the European Union if he won the 2015 election. Cameron personally believed it would be a mistake for Britain to leave the EU, and campaigned for voters to vote to remain in. As economists predicted, the Leave vote is causing economic turmoil. As the result came in, the value of the British pound fell by 10 percent to $1.35, its lowest level against the dollar since 1985.
Also supporting Leave was UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who argued that immigrants were costing Britons jobs, using up government services, and committing crimes. Brexit could also create big headaches for people moving between Britain and the continent. At a minimum, Brexit will mean more paperwork and hassles — and some people could even lose their right to live in the UK and thus be deported. But it will take years for the implications to become clear. David Cameron announced his resignation on Friday morning. (www.vox.com
