S. Micossi: ON THE EU AFTER BREXIT
Great uncertainty still surrounds the likely course of the UK government regarding its future relations with the EU. On this, for the time being, Ms. May has no mandate, and her government needs time to evaluate the different scenarios. For this reason, Article 50 may not be invoked for some time—most people think not before the year’s end or early next year. However, I see no purpose in toying with the idea that Brexit will not happen–an unlikely development that would tear apart the broken tapestry of British politics even more.
