In the most important referendum in the recent British political history, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union by the narrowest majority.

The result has left the rest of Europe critical and distrustful of Britain. This could lead to a lack of investment and create new risks and difficulties for the UK’s relationship with its trading partners in Europe. While Prime Minister David Cameron and his pro-EU supporters asked what went wrong, concerns continue over the economy, trade, employment and healthcare.
