Showdown in the United Kingdom. PM Johnson versus parliament; deal versus no deal. The Brexit endgame has begun. Guests: Friedrich Thelen (political adviser), Jon Worth (blogger), Alex Forrest Whiting (DW)
Alex Forrest Whiting is a DW Reporter and former Westminster political correspondant. She says: "The country, Parliament and the Conservative Party are tearing themselves apart over Brexit. Prime Minister Johnson appears to have lost control of Brexit."
Jon Worth lives in Berlin. He is a blogger, political adviser and member of the Green party. He says:
"Boris Johnson is turning the Conservative Party into the Brexit Party, but this week has shown that is a dangerous game."
Friedrich Thelen is an economy expert who has worked for papers such as "Die Welt" and "Wirtschaftswoche". He thinks: "Democratic convictions are more deeply rooted in Britain's political system than some populists seem to believe."
