Brexit happened: on June 23, 2016, the British people voted to leave the European Union. Many Brits celebrated what they called their Independence Day — freedom from EU rules, fees, and, perhaps most controversially, immigration laws. While others fear that Brexit will severely damage the British economy and their status as a world powerhouse.

- Why was the Brexit referendum was raised in the UK?
- What are the expected implications of leaving?
