Number 28 – Jun 23rd, 2016

Today’s number represents one of the most historical events in decades, most notably since 1992. This number changed the world once in 1992, and now the number changes from 28 to 27.

On June 23rd, 2016, the British people voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. The European Union currently has 28 member states from the Atlantic Ocean to the Baltics, and from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. There is no doubt, that the next few years will be fraught with some turmoil as Britain and Europe work out details should the non binding referendum be followed by Parliament. It could lead to another number in the near future, 1, should Scotland decide to hold another referendum on leaving the United Kingdom as a repercussion for this referendum.
