Antony Phillipson on Brexit: We’ve made an enormous amount of progress Turning me now Anthony philipson, Her Majesty’s trade commissioner for North America, British consul-general in New York chooses Americans more than the idea that the brexit is here there a certain date set, and it seems like a very laborious, complicated process when we usually expect things to end. When they’re going to end, what do you make of it? So, as you say it’s, it’s! No one’s done this before 50 price 2017. That ends at the end of March 2019 and 46 days time. We have made an enormous amount of progress, but I think cuz. He has, I told people here in New York and when you look at it from the outside, I think we’ll really.

So we can leave and go to the Future and not disrupt peace process. 29 Marge there’s the deadline. Do you make it? Yes, I think we do. I mean there is a lot to be done and there’s some big debates coming up, including in Our House of Commons, that we are going to keep negotiating his Honda. Prime minister is tooken or taken message delivering on the brexit. Do British people buy the 29th about some cabinet ministers believe the Theresa May May resign the summer?
