It has been more than 4 years since the ex-prime minister of the United Kingdom David Cameron won re-election on the Brexit referendum promise. 2 years later, PM Theresa May triggered Article 50, officially starting the process for the UK to leave the EU.The United Kingdom was then given 2 years to carry out the process. Yet still, on the deadline date of March 29, 2019 (colloquially known as Brexit day), Brexit was delayed further because PM Theresa May was unable to get members of Parliament (MPs) in the UK to approve the Brexit deal that she had negotiated with EU leaders. This quagmire is hindering political progress from taking place, and the British people and their votes are being insulted.
The incumbent PM Boris Johnson has repeatedly insisted on a no-deal Brexit (ie. Brexit taking place without any withdrawal agreement in place, which would mean that the nation of the UK lose its access to the EU's single market and customs union), to ensure that Brexit can be carried out as soon as possible. Parliament has rightly rejected this facetious proposal.
It is evident that Brexit is getting nowhere and that Boris Johnson’s promise to EU Council President Donald Tusk (that he would make a new set of proposals) is very unlikely to be achieved. Relations between the EU (Europian Union) and the UK are tense. According to one EU diplomat, "We don't really know where the show is going and what the script is or what the finale is, we are not optimistic and it's getting serious.”.
Brexit may have beneficial impacts in the future, but it seems like the UK will never be able to enjoy them. The entire Brexit process seems to be stuck in excessive bureaucracy. If the British Parliament cannot figure something out, it will just be a matter of time before the EU boots the UK out, which is a dire outcome indeed.
