Douglas Carswell, Former UKIP MP

Beyond Brexit – Where might we be heading?

June 24 | 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

In his address to the IIEA, Douglas Carswell will outline his views on Brexit and the direction in which UK politics is heading. He will argue that the perception in Ireland of the forces driving Brexit as atavistic or reactionary is wrong and ultimately dangerous. In his view, both Dublin and Brussels have made serious miscalculations in their approach to Brexit, and these miscalculations increase the chances of an ‘absolute departure’ – and a geopolitical upheaval with the EU’s restless neighbour.
