Summary/Abstract: In June, the UK government entered into talks with the EU on the conditions for leaving the bloc. With that, the government ended speculation about the possibility of stopping Brexit that appeared shortly after the parliamentary election. The EU’s consistent position on Brexit allowed it to impose on the British the mode of the talks and the priorities of the first phase of the negotiations. Divisions in the negotiating strategy among the main political forces in the UK may make the progress of the Brexit talks difficult and increases the risk of a no-deal scenario.
