The UK has made the momentous decision to leave the EU. On Monday July 4th Intelligence Squared staged an emergency event to discuss the ramifications. A panel including Douglas Carswell, Jonathan Freedland, Josef Janning, Liz Kendall, Anand Menon and Adair Turner examined:
What kind of deal can we expect to get? Will the EU play tough with us in order to stop anti-EU contagion spreading to other member states? Or will Brexit be the wake-up call Europe needs to achieve real reform?
Will the Brexit camp be able to deliver on its promises – on immigration, NHS spending etc? If not, will there be a backlash from the voters?
Will we lose Scotland?
Will George Osborne’s dire warnings about the economy be borne out?
Is the second referendum which some Remainers are petitioning for a real possibility?
