BBC - The Real Story: Britain's big Brexit moment

Sam Lowe

Chris Morris and a panel of experts, including Sam Lowe, a senior research fellow at the Centre for European Reform, discuss the costs and benefits of May's deal, no deal, no Brexit - and everything in-between.

There's only one question in Britain these days: what will happen with Brexit? On Tuesday, the future of the country is at stake when the British parliament takes a historic vote on the withdrawal deal that the Prime Minister, Theresa May, has negotiated with the European Union. As it stands, the odds are on parliament voting the deal down. And with the clock to Britain's exit from the EU ticking down, the consequences of the Prime Minister losing the vote are far from certain. Could she go back to Brussels and get a better deal? Could the government fall? Could those who have been hoping to stop Brexit altogether finally get a new referendum? And, what happens if Britain crashes out of the EU in March 2019 with no deal?
