Brexit: GrahamBishop.com’s coverage
On 29 March 2017, the UK served its Article 50 Notice of intention to leave the EU. This launched two years of intense debate in the UK where only 37% of the electors voted to leave. Initially, public opinion did not seem to shift significantly after the referendum. However, as negotiations develop, industry and commerce make their dispositions and the economy responds so may public opinion. These intertwining factors may influence the likelihood of a “good deal” or perhaps a further referendum on the prospective deal that may yet see the UK Remain in the EU.
But the EU27 will not stay still during the two years. President Tusk’s response to the delivery of the letter was clear “But paradoxically there is also something positive in Brexit. Brexit has made us, the community of 27, more determined and more united than before. I am fully confident of this, especially after the Rome declaration, and today I can say that we will remain determined and united also in the future...”
Key elections remain in the EU 27 during 2017 but the Rome Declaration laid out a path for a continued deepening of financial and monetary integration that will have regulatory implications for banking union and capital market union.
The Brexit category brings together the flow of undoubtedly conflicting reports on political, economic and financial developments. We aim to monitor the key ones so you can readily maintain a balanced view as events unfold. Economic and financial events are in sub-categories and we may add others as demand warrants.We cover developments from the perspective of both UK and EU27 as the latter is almost entirely ignored by the UK media. Naturally, the development of populist movements is an integral part of the debate as such groups will influence the actions of EU governments. Our “KeyEUdocs” monitor will note the differences between UK and Eurozone economic developments. These stories will be combined in the Brexit Weekly newsletter.
