Britain to become ’second rate’ in the world after Brexit: EU’s Tusk

EU Council President Donald Tusk said Wednesday that Britain risks becoming a ’second-rate player’ in international affairs after leaving the European Union. He said contrary to what Brexiteers say that they want to make the UK global again by leaving the block, the reality is that the country needs to be part of the Union to play a global role.

So where does that leave the EU after their second biggest financial contributor divorces them? Third rate? Fourth?

the eu is already second rate, far as i can tell, so... no change? at the very least belgium is, incompetent government. stagnating economy. 5th highest suicide rate per capita in europe, 26th worldwide IIRC. world's n1 exporter of islamic terrorists without being islamic... yet. complete divide of north and south, capitalist north vs communist south, nationalist/seperatist north vs globalist south, unequal laws favoring the communist walloons yeaj, id say we might even be third world at this point

"Second rate"… yeah, that comes from a guy from a dumpster of a country who would sell it for a burger if he could. Tusk is one of the personifications of Polish political corruption, right next to PiS and Kaczyński.

The UK 🇬🇧 contribution is more than 24 other member states combined, The eu will die without UK 💷 Democracy works by the consent of the losers and the remainers have refused to accept the results of the vote, If the UK does not leave then any illusion of democracy is dead in the UK and millions of people will never vote again Everyone knew a vote to leave meant out of the customs union and out of the single market, a leaflet was sent to every household explaining this fact

"Second rate", maybe, maybe not. Free to make their own decisions, absolutely.
