New Brunswick, N.J. (July 24, 2019) – R. Daniel Kelemen, a Rutgers University–New Brunswick professor of political science and expert in E.U. politics, is available for commentary on the British government transition, as Prime Minister Theresa May steps down and Boris Johnson takes her place.

Kelemen said, “With Johnson taking over for May, he inherits her Brexit Trilemma. Like May, Johnson has made three promises that are incompatible: leave the single market and customs union, no border between Ireland and North Ireland, and no border between North Ireland and Great Britain.  The UK can only have two of the three promises. Anyone who says the UK can have all three is either deluded or lying.”
