‘Leave’ voters are willing to give up access to the EU market to stop immigration

Voters who cast their ballots to leave the European Union in the United Kingdom’s recent referendum on membership in the bloc said they would be willing to pay the economic price of severing access to the EU’s single market if that’s what it takes to stop more immigrants from coming to work in the UK.

This is after some prominent leaders of the Leave campaign have backtracked since winning the referendum to say that they may not, after all, be able to put immigration controls in place if they want to keep doing business with the EU.

VICE News sent Simon Ostrovsky to Clacton-on-Sea, a bastion for the pro-Leave United Kingdom Independence Party to find out why its residents were so ready to give up on the European project.

Millennials blame older generations for Brexit, but whose fault is it really?

Following a narrow victory by those voting for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, recriminations about who’s to blame are flying in the Remain camp.

Younger voters overwhelmingly voted to stay in the EU and have pointed the finger at their parents’ and grandparents’ generations who were the main force behind Leave. VICE News sent Simon Ostrovsky to a rally outside the Houses of Parliament in London to put depressed Remain voters on the couch.

Corruption in Ukraine: Drifting Offshore

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is facing a crisis of confidence after his name appeared in the Panama Papers leak and the country’s prime minister, with whom he clashed, stepped down.

Poroshenko rose to power on an anti-corruption platform following the 2014 Euromaidan revolution, but many of his supporters are disappointed in the slow pace of reforms and an apparent unwillingness to crack down on corrupt officials. A confectionery magnate before becoming a politician, Poroshenko promised to sell his candy business during his election campaign to avoid a conflict of interest. But he has yet to do so, and this failure became headline news when the Panama Papers indicated that he had set up an offshore holding company to shield his assets from taxation.

VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky went to Kiev to witness the embattled president push through a new fragile government, as allegations swirled around his offshore holdings.

Odessa’s Georgian Leader: The Governor

Ukraine’s government has found a novel way of trying to deal with corruption. They’ve hired a number of foreigners to head government agencies, ministries and even an entire region, in the hopes that their status as outsiders will make them less susceptible to the temptation to award contracts to their best friends, who presumably are not in Ukraine. In the port of Odessa, Mikheil Saakashvili has been appointed governor of the city and the surrounding region. Saakashvili was once the president of Georgia, but fled the country when a new government pressed charges of corruption against him. VICE News’ Simon Ostrovsky spent a day with with the president-turned-governor to find out how he was handling his new job.
