According to a Saudi Businessman, leaving the EU for Britain had the British sell themselves short in properties and cheaper imports.
According to Arabians, Britain’s move was a “monetary suicide” Analysts said Britain had left a continent that fought for six years of destroying dictators, torturers and preventing future war.
Several Gulf governments are tied to Britain, specifically to the leadership of UK Prime Minister David Cameron. The London property market can quickly fall at the mercy of immensely-rich Gulf families. This is not necessarily a benefit described by former London Mayor Boris Johnson and UKIP leader Nigel Farage.
Arabian Journalist Jamal Kashoggi said Russia was another country happy to see the EU broken up. Qatar al-Jazeera journalist Faisal al-Kassim said that when Britain said it would exit, Cameron left immediately. In Syria, when the people said no, the leadership – namely Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, remained in the country and the people left.
The Independent Writer Robert Fisk, said that the UK referendum is but a democratic dream to many nations in the Middle East.
“I’m not talking about the total crackpots – Saddam’s 100 per cent victory in the 2002 Iraqi elections, for instance – but about poor old Egypt which has voted in chains for many years. Just look at that 98.1 per cent for a 2014 constitution which allowed Field Marshal Abdul-Fattah Sisi to stand for president after he had overthrown the elected government of Mohamed Morsi.
“And then we had Sisi’s own 2014 presidential election victory of 96.1 per cent – now that, surely would have Boris and Mike and Nigel slavering with joy if only we Brits had the same patriotic unity as the Egyptian people.”
