The Heat: UK-EU Brexit Talks

The Heat

When the United Kingdom left the European Union at the end of last January, both sides still had to hammer out a trade deal and other issues as part of their post-Brexit relationship. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been to Brussels recently to meet with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and negotiators for the sides are still talking. Trade issues like fishing rights need to be resolved as the clock ticks towards a December 31st deadline. That’s when the UK stops following EU trading rules. 

To discuss:

  • Helen Thomas is the CEO and Founder of BlondeMoney.
  • Brian O’Donovan is a Washington correspondent for the Irish broadcaster, RTE News.
  • Klaus Larres is a Professor of history and International Affairs at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 
  • Wayne Fitzgerald is Deputy Leader at Peterborough City Council.
