The conditions of the Brexit have become a major topic for disputes between the UK politicians. UK Prime Minister Theresa May has proposed a hard Brexit, which means that the United Kingdom would leave the EU single market and customs union, while her opponents from the Labour Party promote a soft Brexit with less radical decisions.
The first Brexit talks are scheduled to begin in Brussels on June 19.
