Brexit referendum

Member of European Parliament David McAllister speaks during an interview outside European Parliament on Thursday, May 14, 2020. Slowed by the coronavirus pandemic and whipped up by a British-imposed deadline, talks between the EU and the UK on a future relationship in the wake of Brexit are struggling to make significant progress. A third negotiation session is drawing to a close on Friday, May 15, 2020 but so far, just over 100 days after the official exit of the UK from the EU, fundamental gaps still exist.

But it was announced and nixed within the span of about two hours Tuesday, April 7, 2020 in a bizarre sequence that appeared to baffle top government officials. Republican Gov. Jim Justice said it was ridiculous and he didn't know why the lottery commission would approve such a deal. (AP Photo)
