[100 word news] – Brexit talks could take five years, says Soros

Billionaire George Soros has suggested Brexit talks could take up to five years, and that leaving the EU ‘is certain to be immensely damaging for both sides’.

‘Negotiating the separation with Britain will divert the EU’s attention from its own existential crisis, and the talks are bound to last longer than the two years allotted to them. Five years seem more likely.’

Mr. Soros also said that if the EU were to reform itself and stop pushing towards ‘ever closer union’, the UK may consider staying in, although he did admit that the chances of Britain reconsidering were ‘slim’.
