Mr. Andrew Duff is a Liberal Democrat Member of the European Parliament for the East of England, spokesman for the Committee on Constitutional Affairs for ALDE and a founding member of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR). The Youth Diplomacy team in Brussels interviewed him about the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. So, Mr Duff, should Britain leave EU table?

No, the UK does not have to leave the European Union, and there is no way a member state can be expelled from the Union. It can, however, negotiate to secede, and cannot in the last resort be stopped from leaving.
