CHICAGO TRIBUNE: 1 year to Brexit: So much to do, so little time

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 29/3/2018

Description

Britain formally announced its intention to leave the EU a year ago, triggering a two-year countdown that University of Manchester political science professor Rob Ford calls a "ludicrously short" timeline.

"That's not sufficient time to disentangle 40 years of political, social and economic entanglement," he said. "Even with the best will in the world — which isn't the spirit in which these negotiations have been conducted — it couldn't happen."
