Brexit, This Is NOT the End…

After 17 months of turbulent negotiations, on 14 November, the British government finally accepted the draft Brexit deal that was concluded the day before with the European Union.

An ephemeral taste of victory for Prime Minister Theresa May, who suffered a serious setback on 15 November: in Parliament, divisions within the Conservative Party between supporters of the “hard Brexit” and Europhiles broke out in the open. Later that day, five members of the government resigned, including the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. 

An unexpected development for May which could lead to a vote of no confidence and her dismissal. A catastrophic scenario that would lead to new legislative elections… or a second referendum on Brexit! To be continued…
