'No deal' Brexit: A political mess, a legal morass and an economic disaster | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it
A “no deal” Brexit would be “a political mess, a legal morass and an economic disaster” leading UK academics have warned. In a new report the non-partisan “UK in a Changing Europe” group set out in detail the chaos that would be created if Britain crashed out of the EU in 2019 without a deal.

Adèle Aubry's curator insight, December 3, 2016 1:13 PM
L'article souligne que même si économiquement, tous les pays de l'Union Européenne devraient favoriser des  traités avec le Royaume-Uni malgré le Brexit, les enjeux politiques prendront le pas sur les raisons économiques. L'un des exemples pris est celui de la France : la classe politique française n'a aucun intérêt à faire du Brexit une réussite économique parce que cela la desservira aux présidentielles de 2017 en renforçant le programme du Front National.
