In Progress
Deliver a smooth, orderly Brexit

The best possible deal for Britain as we leave the European Union delivered by a smooth, orderly Brexit.

Our Verdict

The Brexit process may already appear to be something you’re unlikely to call “smooth” or “orderly”, but technically this policy isn’t related to the build up to leaving the EU – only the point at which we leave. Whatever happens at that point, that’s when we need to think about how we define “smooth” and “orderly”?

The government has been negotiating the conditions for leaving the European Union since coming to power in June 2017. The outcome so far is that the deal that was agreed in November 2018 was rejected by Parliament in January 2019. So we don’t have a deal. Following two extensions to the deadline, that means we’re now looking to leave the EU on October 31st. At this stage it’s still unclear whether we’ll leave with a deal, without a deal, or request a further extension.

So for now we’re marking this policy as ‘in progress’ – work has been been under way for some time to get a deal that minimises disruption when we leave the EU. If we leave the EU with no deal, it’s likely that we won’t have a “smooth, orderly” Brexit. But we’ll have to wait and see. Follow this policy for the latest developments.

But now it’s over to you… How would you define “smooth” and “orderly”?
