British University lecturers of law will give their views on the Brexit crisis, after Newcatle University and Bristol University expressed an interest in participating in this hot and impoprtant topic have been contacted to be counted and contribute their views to the current Brexit crisis.
The University of Newcastle, Manchester University, and Bristol University have all been contacted today for an official view on Brexit and how they think cards are being played, and how they should be played. Cambridge, Newcastle, and Oxford are to be contacted tomorrow in our quest for an official presentation of their expert view on the current state of Brexit negotiations. The idea was first thought up on boxing day at a meeting in London by members of our outstanding thinktank team at a meeting to review issues that dominated 2018.
Theresa May is due to present a vote on the Brexit deal in Parliament in the middle of January. University lecturers in in the EU department of law are being put on the spot to contribute their expert opinion to this very important and historical situation.
In light of the stalemate and somewhat stagnant state of political talks, it has been deemed necessary to collate the views of University lecturers in the field, instead of those views to be confined to their classrooms or the four walls of their homes. Lecturers will have the right to give their professional opinions anonymously if they so choose, but have been urged to identify boldly with their views on a matter as serious and of historical importance as Brexit. They will be asked what they believe is the best solution to the present crisis, how they assess the criticisms that have been levied against Theresa May over the handling of Brexit, and their evaluation of the whole process so far and their potential predictions.
Their own political persuasions on the matter will be inquired to aid our assessment of their overall evaluation on the topic.Universities on our list include Oxford University, Cambridge University, Bristol University, Newcastle University, Leeds University, and Oxbridge University. Their responses will be published and retrospectively assessed in future. Most importantly, it will give us an opportunity to understand how a broad spectrum of legal experts in the field view the current state of affairs , and potential benefit from the best advice on offer.
The British people voted by a margin of 52-48% to leave the European Union in 2016 after former British prime minister threw the question open for a national vote. Cameron who was in favour of staying in the EU subsequently stepped down from office, paving the way for his successor, Theresa May, to take over the reins of power and negotiate a historical deal for Brexit. Negotiations about a Brexit deal has since been fraught with difficulty, a deal ever eluding May; in the ostensible futility of her attempts to achieve one.
Work and Pensions Secretary, Amber Rudd sounded more alarm bells at a Cabinet meeting today about the potential impact of a no deal, saying ”history will take a dim view” of ministers if the UK leaves the EU without an agreement. Her insistence that the UK would be less safe in the absence of a Brexit deal was echoed by Business Secretary Greg Clark, who told MPs a no-deal exit in March “should not be contemplated”.
MPs are set to vote soon on a measure which may restrict the government’s tax powers in the event of a no-deal exit. Most British Universities have made no public contributions to the ht debate which calls for an ingenuous solution to prevent a calamitous outcome. University lecturers will be aware of the voting date of January 14th, so we are literally allowing a maximum of four days for either a written summation of their perspectives or a verbal delivery of it.
Any EU department that fails to contribute to this important assessment on Brexit plans, and also has no existing report, will be berated as not being up to the standard of leading legal minds in the field, since all lecturers of the European Union ought to be concerned enough about the current situation to have a structured view of how things are expected to play out.
