It’s official. #Brexit has officially been announced!
And since this morning, news channels around the world have talked about the mayhem and chaos it would bring if the UK was to really exit from the European Union.
Now that UK has voted to leave the EU, it would be affected on many fronts:
- Cost of living
But for us in Singapore, how will #Brexit affect us?
Some of our politicians weigh in on the matter since news of the possibility of the exit came in.
