The Post Brexit Landscape: Steve Lowe

"Brexit means Brexit. But what will it look like? Everyone seems to have a different view of how it should be done. We will start with the vote: who voted for which side and why. We will then look at the possible scenarios of what it will mean. We will look at the contentious issues, such as immigration, the economy and what ‘taking back control’ might mean in practice. And what will the UK look like constitutionally, as Parliament, the courts and the people seem to be at loggerheads, along with the fact that Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain? Will the UK survive? We will also look at the EU itself and see what the consequence of us leaving is for the rest of Europe and where it might be heading: further expansion, status quo, or contraction and possible break-up."
