Brexit host John Rentoul “ask me anything” as the EU prepares for the worst

B.rexit is still ongoing as the UK government demands that the European Union renegotiate the Northern Ireland Protocol, an integral part of the Withdrawal Agreement.

Meanwhile, some remaining point to the many ways in which Brexit has hindered economic recovery from the Covid lockdowns as evidence that “Brexit is not working”.

This week, Brexit Minister Lord Frost traveled to Lisbon to deliver a speech warning the EU not to make a “historic misjudgment” on the day when the UK government’s request to recast the Brexit deal is rejected before the EU published its own proposals that the protocol would work better, but without a new treaty.

What will happen next?

Why is Boris Johnson trying to tear up an agreement he signed only two years ago? Is it because he wants to fight an eternal Brexit campaign or because, as his former chief advisor Dominic Cummings claims, he signed a deal without understanding it? Is the Prime Minister lazy and dishonest, as Mr Cummings says, or did he really not know how the arrangements for Northern Ireland would work?

Then there are the questions of how Brexit is going in general. How politically effective is Mr Johnson’s claim that ending free movement would mean a pay rise for UK workers?

What should Sir Keir Starmer do? How should Labor promise to make Brexit “work” by the next election?

Why don’t even the Liberal Democrats touch the question of EU accession?
