Discussion

How to make Brexit a success

Brexit butterfly

On Wednesday 19 October, Andrew Neil, James Forsyth, Ameet Gill, Dr Gerard Lyons and Gisela Stuart MP discussed how Britain can make a success of life outside the EU.

Following the Brexit vote the UK has stepped into the great unknown, but polls show that almost two-thirds of adults feel positive about our future. Theresa May has promised to make a success of life outside the EU, but what will that really mean?

Will leaving the EU help us to build a more competitive economy? Can Britain make beneficial trade deals with Australia, China and India? Can the money saved from EU membership be used to fund the NHS, education, housing or transport? And will taking back control of borders, money and democracy help us to thrive?
