No one expected the result in Parliament. But Cameron felt that, as he was a Europhile, he was not the right person to conduct the withdrawal negotiations. The resulting failure of May's negotiations were hardly his fault. At the point at which Cameron left things weren't a mess. There was plenty of potential there for a good outcome, and a moew competent successfir would have made a far better fist of it.The mistake was that he didn’t expected the outcome, so it was a huge political error for him. The mistake was that he, and his government, weren’t prepared for that. There was not Plan or even an idea of a Plan, or an idea to make a plan. He didn’t know what to do. Since he was a “Europhile”, the next smart thing to do was to call elections, so the next government could deal with it, with all support, but he just run away, leaving the bad business for the others to clean up his mess.
Well, that's too bad. As the UK is leaving, ths is an issue for the British people, not European immigrants. While it's not intentional, allowing European nationals to vote would be like allowing MPs to vote on their own pay rises.And all of EU and UK are still waiting for his bad Soap Opera. Meanwhile many EU electors weren’t allowed to vote in the current elections.
