Episode 4 – Looking Back at Brexit (with Andy Edge)

Brexit has been the defining event of European politics since the British people voted to leave the European Union in June 2016. Since then, British Prime Minister Theresa May has been unable to produce a deal that can satisfy Britain’s parliament.The original plan was for the UK to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019. However, Theresa May was forced to request an extension to get enough time to finalize her deal. She received first a short extension to April 12, and then a longer one to the end of June.

On April 8, editor-in-chief Joel Petersson Ivre and senior editor Josh Doyle sat down with Leave voter Andy Edge to discuss why he decided to vote leave, and what he thinks about the tumultuous process that has unfolded throughout British politics.
