Brexit deadlock: No decision

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:17 pm on 2 April 2019

The Brexit deadlock continues, with MPs rejecting all four proposals for leaving the EU. 

It comes after Prime Minister Theresa May's plan was rejected twice by parliament, as was her withdrawal agreement of the deal. The deadline date has been extended to April 12 but they're no closer to a decision. 

So the question is, what happens now? A new deal, an extension to decide, or a no-deal Brexit. 

Dr Stephen Hoadley, Associate Professor of Politics and International Relations at the University of Auckland, joins us to try and answer that.
