The Brexit vote and legal challenge

Friday 18 November 2016

The historic Brexit vote, legal challenge and key issues such as immigration and security

This podcast examines the factors that led to the UK voting to leave the European Union, and some of the potential implications. It also analyses the subsequent legal challenge, the High Court ruling that Parliament must vote to start a formal exit, and the Government’s appeal to the Supreme Court against this ruling.

Exploring the key themes are: former British Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary Jack Straw; constitutional expert, Tony Travers from the London School of Economics and Political Science; and Arlene Foster, First Minister of Northern Ireland and leader of the Democratic Unionist Party.
