Update to our “Brexit Real Time”

12. December 2019, 11:25 Uhr

Finally, it’s election day in the UK – again. Tonight will see the answer to the key question of the past weeks: Whether the Conservatives will indeed be able to win an overall majority, with all the implications for Britain and – above all – Brexit. But will a Tory win really get Brexit done? And what would a Labour minority government mean for the process of exiting the EU?

That’s what we depict in our newest Brexit flow chart, your handy election-day guide to what expect next from Britain’s protracted leaving the European Union. Yet this is just the next round, mind: We have deliberately excluded the following one when a possible Labour government might indeed call another referendum, because that’s what the next update of our “Brexit Real Time” series might come to focus on.
