Rutte: ‘The UK is too Weak to Stand Alone on the World Stage.’
Prime Minister Mark Rutte has made a devastating judgment about the United Kingdom in interviews with European media. “It is the British who are weakened after the Brexit, becoming a medium-sized economy, neither the US nor the EU.”
According to Rutte, the power of the UK is “waning” compared to two or three years ago, and the country alone is not big enough to play a significant role on the world stage.
The United Kingdom is due to depart from the European Union on 30 March according to the current planning. But the deal that the British government and the European Union have come to, does not pass through the British House of Commons.
There is a scenario in which the British will step out of the European Union without agreement, with great economic consequences.
