Brexit: Rien ne va plus?

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


In rejecting the UK’s second application to join the then EEC in 1967, French President DeGaulle warned that opening the EEC to the UK was to enter a world of ‘artifice, delay and make-believe’, this paper asks what the implications of Brexit will be. Given the ‘winner takes all’ mindset of the ‘Brexiteers’ and English consternation at the 2017 EU Negotiating Guidelines it is questionable how far Brexit negotiations can go. Will the intractable procedural and substantive aspects of Article 50 TEU negotiations even be addressed and is the ‘hardest’ Brexit now inevitable?
