With Brexit looming join our expert panel as they examine what brought us here and whether our political landscape will ever be the same again.
It's two years since the UK voted to leave the EU and Brexit seems to be unravelling far more than just our relationship with our closest neighbours. The Conservative and Labour Parties are being torn apart, with MPs splintering off to form the new Independent Group in Parliament, and questions are increasingly being asked about who we are as a nation, why we voted to leave and where it will all lead. Join us for what promises to be a timely and insightful debate.
