We zone in on the two sides of the Brexit debate. Britain votes on whether or not to remain in the EU on June 23rd, a decision that some reckon could have long-term implications not just for the UK but Europe and the wider world as well. We debate the issues with Ian Bremmer, a political scientist and the President of the Eurasia Group, who opposes Britain's separation from the EU, and with Gerard Lyons, a former economic advisor to the Conservative MP, Boris Johnson, and a member of Economists for Brexit. Also in the programme, we feature a report from Belgrade, where campaigners are fighting a controversial plan to redevelop the centre of the Serbian capital.
