Brexit: a takeoff already missed?

Time is running out for the UK and for the Twenty-Seven! March 29, the date set for Brexit, is already here. The agreement they had found in November 2018 was rejected a second time by British MPs. A new referendum on this issue is no longer an option and an exit from the European Union without agreement would be tantamount to opening the Pandora’s box and jumping into the unknown.

Theresa May has already asked the European Council to postpone the Brexit date to June 30. But the postponement will not take place without the unanimity of the Twenty-Seven and the positive vote on the agreement negotiated by the House of Commons. The annoyance of Brussels is at its height and the United Kingdom is on the precipice.
