Why Brexit can still be stopped

July 19 | 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

In his address, Lord Adonis will note that Brexit represents a resurgence of English nationalism and an attempt to ‘finish the Thatcher revolution’. He will further argue that Brexit is against Britain’s long term strategic and economic interests, and is particularly detrimental to British-Irish relations. Lord Adonis will discuss why Brexit is happening, why it has stalled, and why it can still be stopped.
