      EVENT DETAILS
      Britain after Brexit

      Pundits all too often call political fiascos “circuses.” But rarely does a political class oblige by providing several rings of entertainment at once. Such has been the British Conservative government’s attempts to leave the European Union by April 12. Meanwhile, the Tories under Prime Minister Theresa May plunge into one melodrama after another. The British Labour Party under socialist Jeremy Corbyn has vacillated and equivocated over Brexit. As for the British public, their trust in Westminster has dissipated dramatically since the 52%-48% referendum to leave nearly three years ago. To get an up-to-date analysis of Brexit, please join Alexander Downer, former foreign minister (1996-07) and high commissioner in Britain (2013-18) and Tim Montgomerie, founder of ConservativeHome, a centre-right political blog in the UK, and former editorial page editor of The Times in conversation with our ownTom Switzer. Places are limited, so be sure to act quickly to secure your spot now! This is a formal lunch, please ensure you note any dietary requirements when booking.
