Hello international students. First of all, I would like to start my speech by saying welcome and it’s my pleasure to be here. When I received the invitation to speak to all of you students, I was really excited. As a start to my speech I would like to introduce myself. My name is David and I’m a British student, currently attending at London School of Economics. I would like to inform you, that the main topic today will be mainly about Brexit. Firstly I would like to talk about the pros and cons and conclude with my own opinion on how brexit might affect Britain and Europa in the long run. I would also like to include Theresa Mays and Larry Elliot's pointers and opinions.
The Conservative British Prime Minister since July 2016, Theresa May is coming up with some central points and different aspects from her own speech that I would like to present for you. She stated the following “I want the United Kingdom to emerge from this period of change stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking than ever before” . Which is now possible because of Brexit. She is also talking about it has been important for them to leave the EU, but she also says it is important that they still have a good relationship with Europe and negotiate a good plan for Brexit . Another point from Theresa is that leaving EU, will make it possible to control the boundaries more efficiently, so it's not up to the EU to decide, how many immigrates and refugees they should accept, which is also a pro, because now they have the opportunity to act and decide according to their own will.
In relation to Theresa May and her wishes for the EU, Larry Elliot has come up with some points against the EU. He believes that the EU has not been able to protect the population against global economic and he believes that the UK should leave the EU as a protest. Furthermore, from a single market to a single currency, a single banking system, a single budget and ultimately a political entity, which was the goal, but never turned into anything .
