What next for Brexit

first_imgBritain`s Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street in central London on December 12, 2018 ahead of the weekly question and answer session, Prime Ministers Questions (PMQs), in the House of Commons. British Prime Minister Theresa May was hit by a no-confidence motion by her own party on December 12 over the unpopular Brexit deal she struck with EU leaders last month. Facing her biggest crisis since assuming office a month after Britons voted in June 2016 to leave Europe, May vowed to fight the coup attempt inside her own Conservative Party `with everything I`ve got`. AFPWhat happens to the Brexit process now, as prime minister Theresa May fights a challenge to her leadership?The embattled leader toured European capitals on Tuesday in an attempt to seek concessions on her Brexit deal, less than four months before the March 29 date when Britain is set to leave the European Union.But the EU has vowed not to budge, and she came home to a potential leadership challenge.She said she will contest Wednesday’s challenge and, if victorious, plans to table a vote on her Brexit deal some time before January 21.If she loses, the leadership election could take days or even weeks into the New Year and could potentially derail the Brexit timetable.Here are some of the most probable scenarios:- Tweaks to the deal -Victory for May over her rebel MPs will mean she cannot face another no-confidence challenge from within her party for 12 months, giving her some breathing space as she attempts to tweak her deal and get it through parliament.May held talks with European counterparts on Tuesday seeking “further assurances” over the so-called “backstop plan” for the Irish border as she attempts to drum up support for her deal.She will meet with EU leaders to discuss Brexit during a summit in Brussels on Thursday.European sources privately say only clarifications or tweaks in the accompanying declaration on post-Brexit ties might be possible.But that could be enough to sway MPs, particularly if the extended uncertainty takes a disastrous toll on the economy and financial markets.- Norway option -If her deal is rejected, MPs are set to take more control over the whole process. They could push for a “plan B”, which would see Britain adopt a softer Brexit, such as staying in the EU’s satellite trading bloc the European Economic Area — the so-called Norway option.Although being in the single market would require maintaining freedom of movement of EU citizens into Britain — a contentious issue for pro-Brexit voters — this approach is considered more likely to command a majority in parliament and potentially pass a vote.Another potential obstacle, however, is that Britain would have to continue paying large amounts of money into the EU budget, which would prove hugely unpopular.- No-deal Brexit -Britain has legislated to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, after triggering Article 50 — the treaty mechanism used to exit the bloc — two years prior.May has warned that if MPs vote down her plan the country risks crashing out on this date with no agreement.That would sever ties overnight with Britain’s closest trading partner, amid fears of grounded flights, medicine shortages and gridlocked ports and motorways.If May loses Wednesday’s vote, most of the favourites to replace her are pro-Brexit, increasing the chances that Britain would leave without a deal.- Second referendum -Calls for a new referendum now attract cross-party support from dozens of MPs.May has repeatedly ruled out another vote, but could face pressure to call one if Britain slips into political paralysis.Supporters of a second referendum received a boost from the European Court of Justice on Monday, which ruled that Britain has the unilateral right to revoke its Brexit decision.It could take weeks to elect a new leader if May is deposed, and Justice Secretary David Gauke warned on Wednesday that this could lead to the deadline being extended.- General election -The prime minister could try to break the parliamentary deadlock by calling a general election — but would need the backing of two-thirds of all MPs.Even if she survives Wednesday’s party vote, a simple majority of all lawmakers could also topple her government with a vote of no confidence, with some opposition MPs on Monday calling for such a move in parliament.But a Labour spokesperson said that the party would only submit such a motion “when we judge it most likely to be successful”.Losing a confidence vote tabled by the opposition could lead to the formation of a new government — possibly a coalition of parties with a new leader — if MPs agreed on it within two weeks.Otherwise, a general election would be called.last_img

Exhibit Showcases Black Germans Throughout History

first_imgHoward University student Jacob Maldonado examines the photos at the Homestory Deutschland exhibit, detailing the lives of Black Germans in both recent history and antiquity. (Photos by Shantella Y. Sherman)The photo exhibition “Homestory Deutschland – Black Biographies in Historical and Present Times,” created by the Initiative of Black people in Germany was unveiled at The Gallery Lounge in the Armour J. Blackburn University Center at Howard University, Feb. 3, at a reception that brought together students and a host of Black Germans to share their experiences.  Funded by the Federal Agency for Civic Education, the collection of self-portraits gives voice to the complex and varied biographies of Black German women and men over the past three centuries of German history.“It is important that as we acknowledge Black history month that we understand it from a perspective that Dr. Frances Cress Welsing and Neely Fuller did by examining the aspects of human activity and how Black and brown people inhabited the whole planet and have, in some cases, experienced the same things,” Oduno Abdul Tarik, a local resident who attended the exhibition, told the AFRO.  “These types of exhibits document how the war against Blackness has never stopped and it has been global in perspective.”The exhibit features 27 black and white photographs of Black men and women.“Lots of people, when they talk about the history of Germany and the history of people who were persecuted, they usually confine it to the Jewish people and homosexuals, but I had never heard about how Black cultural identity was perceived in German history,” Jacob Maldonado, a Howard student,  said.  “It is so interesting to come here and get firsthand narratives from these peoples’ lives about how it was like to grow up there and how it shaped them into the people they are now.  It is amazing that so many ended up rising up against racial adversity and many became activists.”The biographies of Black men and women who found themselves characterized by stereotypical racist perceptions and struggled to be acknowledged and respected in German society bought to light the ways in which systemic conditions and structures are imprinted upon individual life stories.“Homestory Deutschland” offers insight into the identity formation of Black and brown people in a space that was at once inviting and welcoming, with periods of extreme hostility and racial violence.  And while those on display seemed able to define both their German spaces as their own, they did so while questioning their nationality, their race, and the ambiguity of both.“Homestory Deutschland – Black Biographies in Historical and Present Times “runs through March 10.
