Brexit – A PredictionPosted: Wed 13 July, 2016
Today the UK has changed Prime Minister, with Dodgy Dave stepping down, to be replaced by Theresa May. It’s going to be an interesting time, to say the least.
My own prediction now for the Brexit process will be this :
- Brussels won’t allow any negotiations to happen until the UK has stated it’s intent to leave the EU, by signing Article 50
- UK Government won’t sign Article 50 until the basic negotiations have happened, or at least are happening
And so, we’ll have a deadlock – where the UK Government can portray Brussels as “The Bad Guys” who won’t allow us to leave, because they’re being too harsh.
And that, I suspect, is where it’ll all stall, a total impasse that means the entire Brexit thing will gradually fade from the public mind.
