Postponement of separation left as the only viable alternative to a no-deal Brexit
The Straits Times
The Straits Times’s Rebecca Lynne Tan reported on the UK MPs’ second vote to reject Prime Minister Theresa May’s revised Brexit deal.
Quoting Morrison & Foerster’s Saqib Alam, a London-based Of Counsel, she highlighted that a postponement of Brexit would be of little relief to businesses: “The business community has been vocal about its opposition to a no-deal Brexit. Delaying Brexit prolongs the uncertainty, particularly when exiting without a deal remains on the table,” Mr. Alam said.
He added: “But anything is possible - a no-deal Brexit, a new-deal Brexit, Brexit delayed, Brexit cancelled. In the face of cliffhangers and contingencies, the British government needs to come together to chart one course and restore certainty.”
