Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May makes a statement following winning a confidence vote, after Parliament rejected her Brexit deal, outside 10 Downing Street in London, Britain, January 16, 2019. Reuters
When Theresa May took over as Prime Minister, she announced that “Brexit means Brexit.” However now the fate of her deal to leave the European Union is uncertain.
With negotiations still ongoing, we interviewed AEI fellow Dalibor Rohac to break down what’s happening and what it all means. On this episode, we discuss why the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU, the chances of May’s deal passing and what it would mean for the UK, whether there will or should be a second referendum, and much more.
Dalibor Rohac is a research fellow at AEI, where he studies European political and economic trends. He’s also the author of the book “Towards an Imperfect Union: A Conservative Case for the EU.” You can follow him on Twitter @DaliborRohac.
