The United Kingdom belongs to very closed club of G8 members, the club of the richest countries in the world, however, the wealth is not evenly distributed, far from it. 11 years of Thatcherism (in the 1980s) left the health sector and public utilities in a sorry state, and the dynamism of the City cannot mask the northern doldrums, eternally in painful industrial reconversion.
The last British coal mine (of those which had stood up to Thatcher) closed in 2015. The country had counted as many as 1 in the 330s.

All this b> against the backdrop of thunderous debates in a very divided Parliament.
Channel which quickly became disillusioned following his choice of exit. Above all, it is a real thunderclap for the future of the European Union.
Le colossal negotiation process for a deal, carried out in Brussels with a firm hand by Frenchman Michel Barnier, unraveled more than 40 years of legislative texts developed within the framework of the European Union. Europe, little inclined to concessions, presented a colossal bill beforehand. The administration fees are expensive!
