Brexit Vote: Down to the Wire

June 17th, 2016

Episode 550 of 679 episodes

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.
