With the Brexit negotiations in Brussels reaching a stalemate, there is little hope for a deal before December. Yet, the largest stumbling block could turn out to be the UK parliament, where there is no clear majority for any deal that Prime Minister May can negotiate nor for the “no deal” option. As hundreds of thousands of people are taking to the streets to call for a second referendum, what are the chances of MPs supporting such a “People’s Vote”? How could it happen, and does Parliament have what it takes to lead the government into a Brexit defeat? 

The event will be held in English.
