After the Referendum

Episode 422 of 454 episodes

With the historic referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU impending, we look back on how the campaign has played out, look ahead to the likely result and post-vote fallout.

If Brexit prevails, the ‘what next’ questions are myriad – for our economy, society and politics.
