Will the UK leave the EU on March 29th?

13 March 2019

Professor Tim Bale spoke to ABC News about the latest Brexit vote. He said: “Realistically, I don’t think we are going to be leaving on March the  29th . We have two votes over the next two days, the first one is about no-deal which would involve us ‘crashing’ out of the EU without any arrangements being made and it’s clear that Parliament doesn’t want that to happen, so there will be a vote which presumably will declare that today. Tomorrow there will be a vote where Parliament asks the Government to ask the EU for an extension and everyone is assuming that the EU will grant that extension.”
