With Brexit hanging in the balance, British in Germany worry about their future
At the Frankfurt Book Fair, award-winning authors Patrick McGuinness, Jan Carson and Bonnie Greer offered their perspective on the unfolding events relating to Brexit. And they weren't optimistic.
Finding a solution to Brexit is "squaring the circle," German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the Bundestag before heading to Brussels for a crunch EU summit. Merkel also stressed Germany would not send weapons to Turkey.
The vote on the Brexit deal has been postponed as the UK Parliament effectively forced PM Boris Johnson to request yet another extension from the EU. Johnson is expected to write to the EU's Donald Tusk within hours.
The deal is done. The UK and EU have agreed the terms of a new Withdrawal Agreement paving the way for Brexit. Although politics may yet block it, the deal could transform the economic arrangements of Northern Ireland.
