  • UK is in the state of mourning and there’s an atmosphere of politic toxicity
  • Brexit was a boiling pot waiting to explode, that the resentment of the public in UK had reached its ‘Breaking Point’
  • There’s a petition doing the rounds that is demanding for a second EU referendum

Brexit- Britain exit- a final act by the UK to seal shut their borders, to put an end to the growing fears of Terrorism, to retain the 350 mn pounds a week, which went as Membership fees to the EU and well, to be in charge of making their own laws and relationships. All the above and then some more were the reasons cited by some civilians and the far right parties for being Pro-Brexit.

There are always two sides to a coin. In this case there was a side, which resulted in Sensex plummeting down, Pound dropping down to levels not seen since 1985 and then the silver lining -Immigration being controlled. And then there was the side of the progressive citizens, the ones believing in Co-operation and not confrontation, a side, which believed in pulling together because without immigrants UK will collapse. On Thursday, June 23, UK saw the former being voted by 51.9% of the population.

Currently, UK is in the state of mourning and there’s an atmosphere of politic toxicity. While the world was still trying to wrap their head around the recent separation, David Cameron, British Prime minister announced his resignation saying, “I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination”. Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party publicly retracted his claim that there’d be £350M a week set out for NHS (National Health Service) after the outcome of Brexit, after 17 million people voted to leave, some solely based on that piece of information. And all of the above happened in 24 hours. Phew!

Some would argue that Brexit was a boiling pot waiting to explode, that the resentment of the public in UK had reached its ‘Breaking Point’- headline of a controversial poster showing a vast queue of refugees which was unveiled by Nigel-and that the wrong doing of the government, the unemployment scene and the anti-immigrant feeling, all of it together had resulted in what UK stands as today. Separated but failed.

Impact on the Indian Market

“India remains a haven of stability in the risk environment” says Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Finance. Even as he spoke, the fact that Brexit knocked off Rs. 4 Lakh crore from Indian Stock market remained a fact. Tata Motors and Tata Steel have the most significant exposure to UK and fell over 10% on Thursday,June 23, due to Brexit snowball effect. Needless to say Indian owned Businesses in the UK would also feel the heat.

Situation Today

There’s a petition doing the rounds that is demanding for a second EU referendum. This petition was introduced by William Oliver Healey and it reads, “We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the Remain or Leave vote is less than 60 per cent based a turnout less than 75 per cent there should be another referendum.” It’s already signed by more than a million people and the numbers just seem to be going up. The response of the Government on the above matter is still pending.

As of now we can simply go by the statement, ‘The British people have spoken and the decision shall be respected.’

Britain’s Princess Beatrice Speaks Out About Online Bullying

Beatrice said mobile technology should be a force for good for girls in developed and developing countries

Bullied herself online, Britain’s Princess Beatrice is determined to ensure other girls are equipped to deal with internet abuse and get the best from the digital world.

Beatrice — who as the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and his former wife, the Duchess of York, is eighth in line to the British throne — said her bullying, about her weight and her appearance, were very public and could not be ignored.

But she said other girls faced this in private and needed to be encouraged to speak out and to know where to get support, which prompted her to get involved in campaigns against cyber bullying.

A recent study by the U.S.-based Pew Research Center found about 60 percent of U.S. teens had been bullied or harassed online, with girls more likely to be the targets of online rumor-spreading or nonconsensual explicit messages.

“You’d like to say don’t pay attention to it … but the best advice is to talk about it,” Beatrice, 30, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation during an interview on Wednesday at the Web Summit, Europe’s largest annual technology conference.

“Being a young girl, but now being 30 and a woman working full time in technology, I feel very grateful for those experiences. But at that time it was very challenging.”

Beatrice, who works at the U.S.-based software company Afiniti, co-founded the Big Change Charitable Trust with a group of friends, including two of Richard Branson’s children, in 2010 to support young people who also grew up in the public eye.

Campaign

She also last year joined the anti-bullying campaign “Be Cool Be Nice” along with other celebrities such as Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne, which included a book.

One of the most public attacks on the princess was at the 2011 wedding of her cousin Prince William when her fascinator sparked a barrage of media attention.

“There are lots of people who are ready to help and I want to make sure young people feel they have the places to go to talk about it,” said Beatrice, adding that teachers and parents also had a role to play.

Beatrice said her bullying was so public that she could not hide from it, but her mother, Sarah Ferguson, was a great source of support.

One of the most public attacks on the princess was at the 2011 wedding of her cousin Prince William when her fascinator sparked a barrage of media attention. A month later she auctioned the hat for charity for 81,000 pounds ($106,500).

Her mother, who divorced Prince Andrew in 1996, had to get used to unrelenting ribbing by Britain’s royal-obsessed media.

“She has been through a lot,” said Beatrice, whose younger sister, Eugenie, married at Windsor Castle last month.

“When you see role models who are continually put in very challenging situations and can support you … [then] some of the tools that I have had from her I would like to share.”

Beatrice said mobile technology should be a force for good for girls in developed and developing countries, presenting new opportunities in terms of education, careers and health.

“Social media and the pressures that these young people now face is a new phenomenon … and if I can do more to give young people the tools [to cope], that is my mission,” she said.

“I would say to young girls: You are not alone. Keep going.” (VOA)
