Episode 55: Boris Johnson’s attempt on new Brexit deal

Boris Johnson

This week we’re discussing Boris Johnson’s aim for a new Brexit deal. Listen in as we discuss the history of Brexit, Johnson’s plan to withdraw Britain from the European Union, and the concerns on what it would mean the economy and the UK society.

The European Union, which was established after World War ⅠⅠ, and became a trading block allowing members of the European Union to have special trade and migration rights.

One of the issues many of the UK residents have with the agreement is that while they can vote for political representatives in their own country, they cannot vote for representatives in countries that are part of the EU. This has created a sense of distrust between the population and politicians due to a disparity between what is voted for and what is decided on at the European Union level. 

So what is next for Brexit? Boris Johnson’s hopes to breathe new life into Brexit as Prime Minister of the Tories, following Theresa May’s repeated failures at obtaining approval for her Brexit deal. Listen in for more of our discussion on Brexit, and what may be next.
