POLITICS THIS WEEKEND:
BREXIT, THE SAGA OF THE LABOUR PARTY AND THE RESIGNATION OF THE PRIME MINISTER
This weekend has been possibly one of the most exciting, worrying and busy of modern British politics.
The big event the weekend was the EU vote, which swung in favour of the leave camp, which means we will leave the EU. Or does it? There has been a petition online asking for another referendum. However, David Cameron has said there will not be another Referendum, so it seems unlikely, and if there was, there would be anger within the country. The petition does have over 3 million signatures though, so they do have to discuss it.
However, the story evolves even more, as there is an investigation underway, as there might be some fraud signatures on the petition. A total of 77,000 have already been taken off.
The vote has sparked even more unrest as David Cameron has said that he will resign by October, as he lost to the leave campaign. This means that the Conservative Party will need a new leader, and the two people who are most likely to get the job are Boris Johnston and George Osborne. However, there have been calls for a leave campaigner to take the job, so as Boris is leave, and Osborne is stay, Boris looks most likely at the moment to take the role.
Another big event this weekend is the fall of the Labour Party. It is really quite unsure what has happened at this moment, however it looks like there is lots of unrest within the party, and with lots of the shadow cabinet resigning (at time of writing a total of eleven have resigned) it looks as if Jeremy Corbyn will resign too. This weekend has been a very weird and dramatic time for politics.
It is very unsure what is going to happen over the week but be sure to stick with Trinitas Magazine for most of the action.
