As the desperately close Brexit vote approaches, UK Labour MP Stephen Kinnock talks to Conflict Zone about why Britain should remain in the EU and how the country will have stronger sovereignty in the 28-member bloc.
German companies have demanded that Britain agrees by next week to an interim phase for its exit from the EU. If no deal is reached at an EU summit, firms must begin planning for a worst-case "hard Brexit."
