Four Corners: Britain’s Brexit Crisis
Britain’s Brexit Crisis
ABC  |  August 5, 2019

Three years ago, Britain had a new prime minister and a promise to take the UK out of the European Union by delivering on the people's vote for "Brexit". What had been presented as a simple proposition - for the UK to leave - has turned into a political nightmare, dividing former allies, British political parties and the people of an increasingly dis-United Kingdom. Theresa May failed to deliver, and it cost her the top job.

Now Britain's new PM, Boris Johnson, is making bold promises to "leave". In this revealing account, key negotiators and politicians on both sides of the Channel tell the inside story of the Brexit debacle.

Originally broadcast by the BBC’s Panorama program, this episode of Four Corners serves as a precursor to the following week’s episode, which sees ABC chief correspondent Phil Williams report on what happens now that populist Prime Minister Boris Johnson is the man in charge of both the United Kingdom and the chief Brexit negotiator.
