Brexit and trade.


As both candidates for the Conservative Party leadership say they would countenance the United Kingdom leaving the EU without a deal on October 31, the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit is increasing.


  • A no-deal Brexit would leave the legal status of UK citizens residing in the rest of the EU uncertain.

  • The EU will likely insist that any future trade agreement is contingent on London fulfilling its financial obligations for leaving the bloc.
