How do you now feel about on­set of Brexit?

2019 will see UK leave the Euro Union

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Mark Pirie

The count­down is on for Britain to leave the Euro­pean Union.

The United King­dom will end its for­mal re­la­tion­ship with Brus­sels – and the News took to the streets to get East Kilbride’s views now that Ar­ti­cle 50 has been trig­gered.

Shop­per Wil­liam Dolan felt that it was im­por­tant to fol­low through and re­spect the will of the elec­torate.

“It would be a smack in the face of the vot­ers not to re­spect the re­sult,” he said.

“This is a democ­racy and we can’t just change the re­sult be­cause some peo­ple aren’t happy.”

David Do­herty from White­hills felt that the UK man­aged be­fore they were in the EU and will do the same again.

“I re­mem­ber when we were not part of the Euro­pean Union and our econ­omy sur­vived,” he said.

“It’s im­por­tant not to get car­ried away. I be­lieve it will be okay in the end.”

Court­ney Lan­ni­gan backed First Min­is­ter Ni­cola Stur­geon to do the best for Scot­land.

She said: “I voted Re­main - just like the rest of Scot­land. This will have long-term ef­fects on the NHS and stu­dent loans – it’s re­ally go­ing to hit the next gen­er­a­tion.”

Tracy Lan­ni­gan isn’t con­fi­dent that the move to­wards Brexit will ben­e­fit Scot­land.

“I have to ad­mit I’m a bit fright­ened of it,” she said.

“Now no­body knows what is go­ing to hap­pen and we haven’t been told about any plans so far.”
