British Consul To North Carolina Talks BREXIT, Terrorism, UK - NC Economic Ties

Last week, British Prime Minister Theresa May formally launched Britain's departure from the European Union.  The official pronouncement brings a fresh note of certainty for the British people, be they for or against the move known as BREXIT. 

"Yes, it is a psychological moment," says Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford, the British Consulate -General for the southeastern U.S., including North Carolina. "BREXIT will now happen - the process has begun, there is no way back."

During a recent visit to the WFAE studios, Pilmore-Bedford spoke with WFAE's Mark Rumsey about Britain leaving the European Union, and other issues.
