Re: Great Britain before the Election – The Fear of the Hard Brexit

On June 8, general elections are being held in Great Britain. Prime Minister Theresa May wants a strong mandate for the upcoming negotiations with the EU, and she is using Brexit as her “trump card”. But not all Britons are in agreement with the hard-line stance of their head of government. All over the country, pro-Europe activists are up in arms against May. Do the pro-EU citizens joining forces in organizations like “Open Britain” and fighting for a “soft Brexit” have any chance?
