Bath for Europe are delighted to present Rt Hon Dominic Grieve QC MP, speaking in Bath for the first time. This is a rare opportunity to listen to and pose questions to one of the key figures in the ongoing Brexit drama.
Barrister Dominic Grieve QC has been the Conservative MP for Beaconsfield since 1997, is a Member of the Privy Council and served as Attorney General until 2014.
On 16th July, Grieve hinted at backing for a second referendum.
Earlier he was dubbed the Tory ‘rebel commander’, he opposed Brexit and authored a number of amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill. Most recently, he secured concessions from the Prime Minister of the ‘meaningful vote’ which led to him voting against his own amendment.
“We could collapse the Government, and I assure you I wake up at 2am in a cold sweat thinking about the problems that we have put on our shoulders… The difficulty is that the Brexit process is inherently risky, really risky. Risky to our economic wellbeing, to our international relationships and ultimately to our national security.” (BBC Sunday Politics, 17/06/2018)
We have asked him to speak to us about all things Brexit, and hope that he’ll be able to bring some clarity amongst the smoke and mirrors. Bring your questions and look forward to an insightful session.
Book your tickets here via Eventbrite.
Doors and bar open at 6:30 pm for a 7 pm start. The talk will be held in Hayesfield School’s Roper Theatre, Upper Oldfield Park, Bath BA2 3LA.
