Disunited Kingdom?

Hard Brexit? Soft Brexit? Brexit of champions or Brexit of losers? We hope that Scottish crime writer and regular BBC presenter, Denise Mina and former Islamist radical turned anti-extremist Ed Husain can explain to chair, columnist David Slack, and us why more than half of British voters opted to quit the European Union in 2016 and whether it was just a spectacular own goal by David Cameron. And what, if anything, does it mean for the long-term project of Scottish independence that the British voted to leave the EU but Scotland prefers to stay?

Please note that due to personal circumstances Irvine Welsh, previously speaking at this event, is no longer able to attend WORD Christchurch Festival. He has been replaced in this event by Denise Mina. For more information see our announcement here
