No deal Brexit

My name’s Maggie and I work on the 38 Degrees staff team. It’s my job to stay on top of what’s happening with Brexit, and look for ways that 38 Degrees-ers like you can shape it for all of us. [1]

It’s possible that the UK will leave the EU on 29th March without a deal. [2]

We don’t know if it will happen. But we need to be prepared if it does. What 38 Degrees decides to do – or not do – in the few days after a no-deal Brexit could be really important.

The first step to building a plan is getting a sense of what we all think. So will you share your thoughts in a short survey to get the ball rolling? Here is the first question to get you started:
 

How do you feel about a no-deal Brexit?
 

 

Happy – I want a no-deal Brexit

 

 

Unhappy – I don’t want a no-deal Brexit

 

 

Unsure – I don’t know what I want to happen

 

 

Indifferent – I don’t mind either way

 

If politicians don’t manage to agree a Brexit deal by the 29th March, the UK will cut all ties with the EU immediately. Some people think this could be bad for the UK. A no-deal Brexit could cause medicine shortages, or mean the price of food goes up. Others think a no-deal Brexit is the best outcome. [3]

People like you – reading this email right now – are at the heart of 38 Degrees. Whatever you think about a no-deal Brexit, 38 Degrees needs to plan what we’d do if it happens. So Zoe will you take this short survey to let us know where you stand?
The first question is:

How do you feel about a no-deal Brexit?
 

 

Happy – I want a no-deal Brexit

 

 

Unhappy – I don’t want a no-deal Brexit

 

 

Unsure – I don’t know what I want to happen

 

 

Indifferent – I don’t mind either way

 

Thanks for everything you do,

Maggie Chao
