Sanctions, Atrocities and the Bill for Brexit
Know This: The U.S. is urging all nations of the world to cut economic ties with North Korea. Argentina has sentenced 29 people to life in prison for crimes committed during the country’s bloody dictatorship that began in the mid-1970s. And both actor Geoffrey Rush and radio star Garrison Keillor have been accused of inappropriate behavior in the workplace.
Remember This Number: $53 billion. That’s how much Britain may have agreed to pay as a divorce bill in Brexit negotiations, a sum that may help it win a transitional deal with the EU — but that is unlikely to be the last capitulation that the U.K. makes as it attempts to navigate the many issues raised by Brexit.
