Getting the Hook on Brexit05 . 04 . 2019
This week’s podcast tries to keep pace with the fast-evolving Brexit situation by speaking to Invesco’s Head of UK Government Relations, Graham Hook. We ask him how the talks between the Prime Minister and Jeremy Corbyn are likely to pan out. What happens next if an agreement can’t be reached. Are the EU really going to accede to UK demands for an extension and why do they care if the UK doesn’t want to take part in EU parliamentary elections? No deal is the default option, but could we ever end up with it? How much does Jeremy Corbyn really want an election? Looking further ahead (maybe not that much further) who is going to be the next leader of the Conservative Party and if Brexit ever could be put behind us will the parties which have dominated UK politics for a century be able to heal their divisions or have things changed for good?
