Description

The Brexit deadline has been delayed and Britain is now heading for a snap general election. Anne McElvoy asks José Manuel Barroso, former president of the European Commission, whether Boris Johnson can win on December 12th and “get Brexit done”. Also, will Britain’s exit from the EU threaten workers’ rights? And, as an opera devotee, which work does he think would best serve as a guide—or a warning—to the unfolding political drama?

It was interesting to hear José Manuel Barroso's point of view on Boris Johnson and BREXIT. He appears to be well-read and thoughtful in his remarks.
