In a referendum in June 2016, a majority of the electorate – 51.9 percent – voted in favor of Brexit and breaking away from the EU, while 48.1 percent voted to stay. Britain is set to leave on March 29, 2019.
The EU has comprehensively rejected UK proposals for a new customs relationship that sought to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland, plans that suffered a “systematic and forensic annihilation,” says a senior EU diplomat.
Nigel Farage has been slammed as a “hypocrite” after he admitted that his two sons have German passports, meaning they – unlike millions of UK citizens – will be able to retain the right to free movement in Europe post-Brexit.
Support for a second Brexit vote is growing, with a new poll indicating that nearly half of all Brits want a say on the final terms. The EU, however, seems to be growing used to the idea of the UK’s exit.
The countdown is on – it’s officially 365 days until Brexit. But do people still even want to leave the bloc, or would the public prefer a second referendum to take back what the majority decided last time?
