Brexit, Britain and the EU. In the referendum of June 23 2016 voters in the United Kingdom made an 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 and forthcoming negotiations on a future relationship with the EU. 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.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland left the European Union on 31 January 2020 entering a ‘transition or implementation period’ of eleven months. The EU and the UK are now about to begin talks on their future relationship with Britain proposing a ‘Canada-style’ FTA.
Specialist Brexit speakers include supporters of Remain, believers in Leave, and writers and commentators who are merely highly informed observers. After all, even Speaker Bercow is now a speaker.
