sad for the UK, sad for the EU

In a world that is ever growing and expanding, the recent outcome of the BrEXIT vote stuns and saddens us here at wonder | wander | world. 

As a major player in the world stage Britain is looked upon as a leader and therefore judged accordingly. 

London is a major financial gateway, the biggest and busiest in Europe, rivaling Wall Street as a hub of international trading in stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities. 

It is also the current home of half of wonder | wander | women who believe that in an ever expanding world, not being inclusive is coming from lack. 

We had our concerns that Brexit would harm the EU’s cohesion, confidence and international reputation. 

The biggest consequence of all, being that Brexit would undermine the liberal political and economic order for which Britain, the EU and their allies and friends around the world stand for. 

A tragic split: How to minimise the damage of Britain’s senseless, self-inflicted blow? ~ TheEconomist

The World Economic Forum lists five consequences to the UK leaving the EU: 
  1. a government crisis in London
  2. sensitive financial markets will be vulnerable 
  3. anti-establishment political movements gain ground
  4. EU will be pressured into closer integration
  5. Brexit will disrupt internal equilibrium
The dodgier issue is now that the vote is cast in favor to leave, what happens then? 

We can only guess, unfortunately we will all be tested and challenged.
