In the 1990s Alanis Morrissette had one of her biggest successes with her song ironic in which she asks if it isn’t ironic to win the lottery and die the next day.
Isn’t ironic that 60 years after the Treaty of Rome paved the way for the European Union, that this very union is now experiencing Brexit? As Britain submitted the so-called letter of divorce, one cannot but think that this will leave Britain worse off than it is now. It comes at a difficult time for the European Union where several crises have led many people to question this union and turn towards nationalists and isolationists. Britain went a step further and decided to leave the EU. It will alter the country irrecognisably.
