WASHINGTON POST: With 100 days to go before Brexit, Theresa May is running out the clock

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 19/12/2018

Description

Over the coming weeks, May’s deal “will be, I’m sure, like a piñata,” said Rob Ford, a politics professor at the University of Manchester. “It will be repeatedly beaten with sticks from all sides and called dead, over and over again, by all sorts of people who want to call it dead, but that doesn’t make it dead.”

Why? Because it averts a no-deal Brexit, Ford said.
