The Debate - Post-Brexit Uncertainty

PressTV 18 views
The European Union and Britain are still at odds over several major issues in their last-ditch post-Brexit trade talks which have defied any deal so far. The two sides are still struggling to resolve issues such as fishing rights, fair trade guarantees and the design of a mechanism to ensure neither side can distort trade through undercutting standards. EU diplomats say these sticking points require more time. Britain left the EU in January but its departure from the bloc will be complete at the end of December. Brexit uncertainty not only could lead to a hard and painful departure from the EU but also might bring about the eventual break-up of the UK itself.
