UK has a new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, elected not by General Election, but by his own Conservative membership after the resignation of Teresa May.
This means he continues without a parliamentary majority and it's likely will need the support of other political parties in order to move on EU Exit.
Meanwhile, his own Party contains determined anti-Brexit back benchers like Dominic Grieve, determined...to put country before Party to stop a no deal exit.
Johnson, however, has appointed a Cabinet entirely of Brexiteers, that is people who wish to leave the EU.
The new EU has a clear indication that a Brexiteer cohort is now in post which supports no deal and that is very different from the previous leadership.
Get your popcorn, it's going to be a bumpy exit.

Not being from the UK or other European country; not sure how this would impact on the UK if they do pull out or stay in.

Cornwall. Where is God's Country then, if not in UK? ��
EU is a free trade zone, free trade and to live and travel between participant countries. Immigration was a factor in the vote, the strain on UK housing and services. This is complicated because it is not the same north of the border. Scotland needs and values immigration and voted to remain in EU. It may cause the UK union to end.
EU was about free trade and evolved to include shared legislation and much wider issues. Some legislation is not well received.
The Irish currently have freedom to cross from Southern to Northern Ireland and do not wish that to change, this is a key issue, EU supports that. Nobody wants to return to The Troubles...but a solution cannot be found for that.
So...the last Prime Minister negotiated an exit deal providing some stability for business, 500 pages of detail worked out and agreed.
The UK Parliament will not accept the deal, it ties UK into certain laws and agreements they say are worse than remaining an EU member.
That contravenes the referendum result. The people voted to leave, not to continue to be controlled by EU.
For U.S., it means we want to trade with you ��

God's country is located about 95 miles north of New York City in the Berkshires. Very peaceful; fresh air, clean water and great people.
