The EU Referendum: 2 years on:

This is my article about the EU referendum two years on since the United Kingdom voted on the 26th of June 2016 to leave the European Union and if there has been any progress since then.
After numerous meetings in Brussels where the European Union Committee is based and in the House of Commons at Westminster. Everyone in the UK are confused about whether Prime Minister (PM) Theresa May is going to negotiate a deal with the EU or crash out without one at all.
I do think all the sectors in the UK such as farming, car industries, fisheries, as well as other businesses don’t have a clue what type of Brexit Theresa May is going to negotiate. A hard Brexit where we take the reins back from the EU and make our own rules and regulations or a soft Brexit where the EU still has the reins and some control over the UK.
While watching the news one evening, I heard a woman who was from the fishery industry saying that people like Lord Alan Sugar  or Richard Branson should negotiate with Brussels as Theresa May is sending inexperienced people to do these Brexit talks with Brussels. In my view it would be fantastic if people like Lord Alan Sugar or Richard Branson did the Brexit talks with Brussels and I bet they wouldn’t be wasting the EU Committee and the MPs precious time like Theresa May is now as we’re still not got anywhere with these Brexit talks still!
After doing yet another meeting in Brussels Theresa May held a cabinet meeting in Chequers Court at her countryside stately home on Friday the 6th of July 2018 which shockingly ended in disaster. As on Monday the 9th of July 2018 David Davis the Brexit Secretary and Boris Johnson the Foreign Secretary resigned as they both didn’t agree with her new white paper Brexit deal. It wouldn’t be looking good for Mrs May as two of her cabinet ministers resigned had resigned in less than twenty four hours! Boris Johnson sent Mrs May his resignation letter and told her why he didn’t agree with her, it also stated in his letter that:
 “The Brexit dream is dying!”
My reaction to these resignations I think that Boris Johnson who was a Leave campaigner knows what the UK public wants and Theresa May is not delivering the Brexit deal that the UK public wants!
Both David Davis and Boris Johnson were placed. Dominic Raab replaced David Davis as Brexit Secretary, and Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt replaced Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary. As the Conservative governments begins to squabble with one another and slowly begins to crack and crumble! There’s possibility that Theresa May could be ousted out of her role as PM! But only time will tell if she’ll remain as PM or be forced to resign! A similar situation happened in 1992/1993 when Margaret Thatcher was PM.
There only eight months remaining until we leave the EU on the 31st of March 2019! Come on Mrs May time to get your skates on and get on with it as that is what you said in one of your many speeches after you took off over from David Cameron wasn’t it?
In my opinion about the  EU referendum situation that we are currently in and what has happened I doubt Theresa May will remain in her role as PM as there is a high number of people who has no idea of what she is doing. Also I remember actor Danny Dyer who was on a politics show and called David Cameron a t**t for not marching on and getting on with job and instead making someone else pick up the pieces! I wonder what might of happened if David Cameron remained as PM?
I believe it would have been totally different and maybe most of the mess Theresa May put us in as well as the stupid decisions she made. For example, the snap election that Theresa May decided to happen on Thursday the 7th of June 2017. They could have all been avoided together! I wouldn’t be surprised if the UK crashed out of the EU with no deal at all. If Theresa May can’t even sort out her own cabinet, what  would she be like with the EU and the Brexit talks? Plus I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the Conservative MPs put in a leadership challenge against Theresa May. As on the quiz shot The Boss presenter Susan Calman would say:
“Team, if you dare to defy challenge now!”
Let’s see if Theresa May’s cabinet or the MPs in the Conservative Party
