Could the U.K. reverse Brexit and become an “associate member” of the European Union? That is now on the table according to a new plan.
This tiered membership proposal would allow Ukraine to join the EU without actually joining the EU. It would allow for easier trade within E.U. countries but it would also mean that these associate countries would have to abide by E.U. rules and contribute to the E.U.’s budget. Isn’t that a major reason why the U.K. left in the first place?
Details of the plan were presented at EU meetings in Brussels this week. There is no telling if the E.U. would go for this but most certainly Ukraine would.
