Brexit: An Amicable Divorce?
Lord David Owen, Independent Social Democrat, House of Lords

Lord David Owen speaks at the University of Oxford as a guest of the International Relations Society. The former Navy Minister, Health Minister and Foreign Secretary under the Labour Government, and co-founder and former leader of the Social Democratic Party spoke about his hopes for an amicable and just solution to the current negotiations gripping British politics over Brexit and Article 50.

In 2016 believing that the EU had become dysfunctional, and opposed to the inexorable direction towards a federal United States of Europe, he concluded it was in the best interests of the UK to leave the EU and supported and campaigned for Vote Leave in the EU referendum.

His talk was introduced by Ed Bithell, President of the International Relations Society and a student at Queen's College, University of Oxford.
