Brexiting

Brexiting

Editorial staff
PM Boris Johnson successfully signed the divorce agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union in Brussels but the Westminster Parliament passed an amendment that delays Brexit. The vote was a big defeat for Boris Johnson. Proposed by parliamentarians of all parties, the amendment was approved by 322 to 306 votes. The prime minister's plan differs from the agreement reached in Brussels by former prime minister Theresa May. The British Parliament had rejected that three times, particularly because it contained the "backstop": one of the most controversial points criticized by the Conservatives. In this special report, we retrace the main stages of the long and controversial process that could lead to United Kingdom leaving the EU. The current occupant of Downing Street intends Brexit to happen by the set deadline, deal or no deal.
