Bengaluru: The Conservatives at UK led by Theresa May would not have expected anything close to such a setback when they called for an election.
The results at the post-Brexit polls implicate the current government falling short of eight seats to win an absolute majority at The House of Commons. With Brexit laying a major impact on the results, expats from the city respond to the current scenario.
Renowned mathematician Tim Poston shared his delight that the Conservatives were given a right answer from the polls. “I’m happy that the results have posed a challenge on the current government that forgets EU exists for unification,” he said.
Poston, who is settled in the city, is not a fan of the formulae May and her party has been using to take the nation forward. “Brexit is a complete disaster, which implies prejudice against immigrants. Any benefit that is sought through the referendum is imaginary,” he said.
He believes that the situation is “messier and confused than ever before” and foresees nothing ahead of time. Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, a young entrepreneur shared his belief that he foresees a bleak future for UK. “The UK is set for a disastrous ride and all of us in the world should watch out for its aftermath, as it would spread rather very quickly,” he said.
The young businessman who is currently at Mexico City shared his belief that May and co. would continue to try negotiating Brexit on a priority. “The Euro is definitely going to drop, increased inflation due to the political instabilities and a tighter immigration policy altogether will contribute negative to the current situation,” he said.
George Carson, another British expat from the city had strong reactions against the prevailing situation at the UK. “Theresa May has messed up the situation with her unnecessary hurry to make Brexit a reality. These numbers should speak and make her realise her mistakes for being anti-majority,” he reacted.
Carson also praised the young voters who turned out in large numbers. “The British youth just made it clear that they were getting tired of the instabilities and insecurities. It was high time that this had to take place,” he said....
