After the Referendum

June 20th, 2016

Episode 422 of 494 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. Our panel of expert commentators assess the decisive issues in the remaining days before the vote, and look ahead to possible post-referendum landscape scenarios. If ‘remain’ carries the day, is the question of the UK’s relationship with Europe truly settled for at least a generation? If the result is close, will the clamour for a re-run intensify? If Brexit prevails, the ‘what next’ questions are myriad – for our economy, society and politics.
