You do realize that the UK still is and will always be more important, not only economically as well as geopolitically, than your country - and admittedly mine too - right?
Enjoy having an enlarged conservative parliament. They'll have their way with the Brexit negotiations, as well as everything else they've been wanting to screw up, like your healthcare system and welfare. Don't worry though, it's all for the best; this is what the people want after all.
Alright, I'll bite.
What does that have to do with ANYTHING?
Every single post about the UK of yours emits a very strong pessimistic sentiment that seems very fatalistic. Relax, UK will still have a strong(er than our) economy so let's watch and stay neutral
It's not just the UK honestly. I'm doom n' gloom about pretty much everything, mostly because the opposition usually doesn't acknowledge the fact that their actions could cause a global meltdown. I don't know Trump will be a terrible president, but everything suggests he will be. I don't know brexit is a huge mistake, but everything suggests it is. I don't know the European Union is Europe's only real chance at relevance in the future, but everything suggests it is. I care about the world juuust enough that I get a little heated when idiots ignore the obvious.
The size of the UK's economy is exactly why I'm more invested than normal. Even though the anti-globalists like to pretend we live in the 16th century where mercantilism is a viable economic option, I know better. The world is deeply connected, which is mostly a good thing. Trouble arises when large countries decide to screw themselves over, because they're not only screwing themselves anymore. If the UK tanks, my countrymen will feel the difference, just like we did because of the Americans in 2007.
The world is not a playground or a game. There are no quick saves or resets; just "relaxing" is not an option. There is a very real chance many of the choices western nations are making at the moment will backfire spectacularly. If nothing else, I'll want to be able to say "I told you so" when my generation of civil servants have to pick up the pieces.
