Still shuffling the deckchairs on the Titanic? Britain, post Brexit with Stephen Heathorn 

Three years on from the UK’s formal departure from the EU and there is still uncertainty about the full impact of the Brexit decision, due largely to the subsequent crises brought about by the Covid pandemic and the situation in Ukraine.

This talk will consider the rise and fall of Boris Johnston as Prime Minister, what he and his successors (Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak) have accomplished on the Brexit file, and what we can ascertain about future hurdles still to be faced.
