It’s now coming up to five years since the referendum in the United Kingdom that eventually took the country out of the European Union. The negotiations were arduous and resulted in an eleventh-hour agreement on the future relationship on Christmas Eve of 2020. Since then, the deal has come into force, with big changes for some – like commercial fishing fleets on both sides of the English Channel and Brits with second homes in the EU, to name just two examples.
Now that we’re a few months in, we wanted to check up on how Brexit is bedding in. We speak to two MEPs to get their take.
