Prime Minister John Major : We are no longer a world-class power we must accept the facts
November 10, according to the British “Daily Mail” reported on November 10, the politician John John, who once served as the British Foreign Secretary and Chancellor of the Exchequer in Thatcher’s cabinet, and the British Prime Minister from 1990 to 1997 Sir Major gave a speech in London last night (9th). In his speech, Major said frankly: “We (Britain) are no longer a powerful country, and we will never be like this again (to become a powerful country).”
Major said that in the next half century, Britain will remain the top country in the second tier. However, no matter how excellent it performs, it is likely to be surpassed by other larger countries due to its small area and population size.
Major criticized: “Because of our rhetoric, loud quarrels, constant risks, and stubbornness, our profits from trade will be thinner, the treasury will be more empty, job opportunities will be less, and the future will no longer be prosperous. “
When it comes to the issue of “Brexit”, Major said it is a “sordid betrayal” of voters’ trust. He asserted that the outcome of the “Brexit” trade negotiations will be a fragile and extremely basic agreement, or even no agreement at all.
Major pointed out that for now, by January 1 next year, the progress of “Brexit” may be more cruel than anyone expected. He warned that another disturbing effect of “Brexit” is that it will allow Scotland to gain more and more support for independence and make Northern Ireland and the South more united, which will increase the risk of Britain’s division.
