Brexit – the UK, European Union, Referendum and Article 50 Speakers

Brexit, Britain and the EU. In the referendum of June 23 2016 voters in the United Kingdom made a historic decision to leave the European Union by a margin of 51.89% to 48.11%. Speakers on the implications and consequences of British withdrawal include writers and specialists on the political, business, financial, economic, banking, trade, legal, and social outcomes of this momentous event. Issues include the influence of the European Research Group [ERG], the ‘backstop’, the Northern Ireland/Republic of Ireland border, the likelihood or otherwise of a second referendum or “People’s Vote’, and the possibility of ‘No-Deal’. Speakers cast light on implications, risks, and opportunities in the EU27 including Ireland, and on the impact of Brexit outside Europe including in the United States and other non-EU territories.

Specialist Brexit speakers include supporters of Remain, believers in Leave, and writers and commentators who are merely highly informed observers. And Boris Johnson. Possibly the only Speaker not on offer is Speaker Bercow.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is due to leave the European Union on March 29 2019. At 11pm.
