Prime Minister Theresa May’s third attempt at passing Brexit deal was rejected. Elliot Tepper, MLI Research Advisory Board Member, comments on the most recent Brexit failure.
“Yes, [the vote] is getting closer, but there’s clearly no consensus,” Tepper explains. Most voters are in favour of a continuing relationship with the European Union and, if there is no agreement, many want to just cancel Brexit altogether.
In terms of previous support for May’s Brexit plan, Tepper claims that “those votes have shifted from hard Brexiteers to saying well, we’d rather have some deal than have no deal and risk staying in.”
