Brexit Talks Begin: An Edelman Briefing

Brexit, General Election, Government Affairs

EU_Brexit

Given the build-up, today’s formal launch of the Brexit negotiations is distinctly anti-climactic – something which suits both sides at present. The mood in the UK is currently more subdued and reflective than combative in the wake of recent tragic events and Theresa May’s failure to obtain a solid mandate from the country for her vision for Brexit at the general election.

We should not expect any breakthroughs at today’s meeting – it’s an opportunity for both sides to discuss the structure of the negotiations, to get the measure of each other and to start building up trust and goodwill. But regardless of breakthroughs or breakdowns, the Edelman Brexit Unit has put together a note analysing the start of the talks and what we can expect from this initial phase.

Read the full briefing below:
