Brexit Update: Deal or No Deal?
For the latest on the road to Brexit, we spoke with Wilson Center Global Fellow Michelle Egan, who has been following the story long before the historic UK vote to exit the EU was taken. In this episode of Wilson Center NOW, she provides analysis of the fallout from the recent high-profile resignations in Prime Minister May’s cabinet and the possibility of not reaching a deal by the March 2019 deadline.
NOTE: This interview took place before the July 24 announcement that Theresa May will take the lead on “crunch talks” with the EU, while Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, the UK’s former lead negotiator, will be left in charge of domestic preparations, no-deal planning, and legislation.
