Next country to leave EU Odds : Will someone ‘follow in footsteps’ of UK?

2020 will go down in history in British and indeed European politics. The United Kingdom finally reached an agreement to leave the EU on January 31.

The country made history by becoming the only member state to have left the European Union.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson oversaw the deal, one which was orchestrated by David Cameron four years ago when a referendum was held on the issue in 2016.

Here’s the latest Next country to leave EU Odds

It had been a long time coming, with Brexit in the running ever since the referendum in June 2016. Back then, 17.4 million chose Brexit. The Leave side won 52% of the vote compared to the 48% for Remain.

The deadline, however, was twice delayed, originally meant to take place in March of last year. But MPs chose to reject Theresa May’s deal. The Prime Minister at the time then handed in her resignation after MPs voted down her deal for a third time.

But the most recent election – in December 2019 – saw a Conservative majority of 80, with Boris Johnson passing the Brexit legislation with relative ease from then on in.

The EU involves 28 European countries, and as a political and economic union, allows free trade and free movement of people between member states.

The UK had been a part of what was then known as the European Economic Community since 1973. But they have now become the first member state to withdraw.

 

And now there is talk on other potential exits.

Italy are currently 7/2 to be the next country to leave the European Union.

Greece are also a potential nation to leave, and are currently 6/1 to do so. France are currently 10/1, with the Netherlands available at 12/1. 

Austria and Czech Republic are also 12/1 to leave the EU.

Poland and Spain are available at 14/1 to copy the UK, with Portugal currently 16/1. Cyprus is currently 18/1 to leave next.

Punters have also given odds for Ireland, Hungary and Belgium at 25/1. Both Denmark and Germany find themselves at 33/1, along with Croatia, Romania and Slovenia.

In terms of the all-important trade aspect, Johnson has already suggested that the country will not follow the rules set in Brussels.

The PM says that a free trade deal – much like the system used in Canada – may be an option.

Apart from trade, several other aspects of the relationship between the UK and the EU are still not set in stone. These involve electricity and gas supplies, law enforcement, medicine regulation, security and data sharing among countless other issues.
