Astonishing Brexit Vote Sparks Fears of Further EU Defections

The Brexit, or “British Exit” vote is in, and many people are shocked the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Now experts are predicting a domino effect as other countries in the EU consider the same thing.

Belgium

Angry voters in Belgium have secheduled a vote for later this year some are calling “Belloutahereyo.”

France

One of the largest countries in the EU is home to a small contingent of very vocal traditionalists who think France is losing its way of life. In September they vote on whether to leave in the “Freeyalater.”

Germany

With the best economy in the EU, it would be a devastating blow if Germany leaves. Many Germans don’t care, they just want out. In November they are set to vote on “Gerpature,” or German Departure.

Italy

Italians are nothing if not passionate about their country, food, architecture, style and traditions. A hard core group of voters want to leave the EU, and they vote on the process this fall in the “Italaway.”

Luxembourg

Luxembourg is a key player of the EU. In fact, Luxembourg City is one of the three capitals of the European Union along with Brussels and Strasbourg. Surely the January 2017 “Luxembargo” vote will keep them in the group. Or will it?

The Netherlands

The Dutch have a long and distinguished history. Are they losing their identity just to fit in the EU? Voters make themselves heard later this year when they have a chance to vote in the “Neverland.”
