More than a third of British voters remain unconvinced that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union,
according to a recent poll for BBC Newsnight. And that’s despite the vast majority of voters saying they would
make the same choice if another referendum was held. We’ll get the latest on Brexit, hear about the unfolding
British leadership crisis (including Boris Johnson withdrawing as a candidate for prime minister), and speculate
over what the European Union might look like in ten years.

Guests:

Constanze Stelzenmueller, Robert Bosch senior fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe, Brookings Institute

David Rennie, Washington bureau chief and Lexington columnist, The Economist

Sebastian Mallaby, Paul A. Volcker senior fellow for international economics, Council on Foreign Relations
