It’s exactly one year since people in Britain voted to leave the EU. The result of the referendum sent shockwaves not just throughout Britain but across Europe. So, what's the mood in Britain one year later?
The House of Lords, the upper house of parliament, has inflicted two serious defeats on Theresa May's government at it attempts to get its EU withdrawal bill passed into law. More defeats are likely.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has called for national unity, exactly a year ahead of Britain leaving the EU. May was speaking during a whistle-stop tour that took in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The Lords may save the day and the customs union. Meanwhile, the British Empire is returning, but it won't strike back, and Boris Johnson is looking to Hungary's Viktor Orban for an ally on Brexit.
Twelve months of Brexit negotiations have shown it is impossible to leave the EU without harming yourself. That is why it is clearly time to turn back, says Bernd Riegert.
