The Debate

Popular discontent: No closure for Brexit at EU summit

What do the people want? We asked the question at the start of the week as France's "Yellow Vest" protests headed into a fifth week. We asked the question again when the UK prime minister pulled the vote in parliament on Brexit. Now it's on to Brussels, where a constant din of insurgent blowback weighs on EU leaders, who find themselves with the same Theresa May but no closer to closure on Brexit and just as divided over how to address the frustrations of EU citizens who themselves are divided.
