A. C. Grayling reminds us a week is a long time in politics, and there is every possibility of turning things around to rejoin the EU.
The last time Bath for Europe hosted A. C. Grayling was in February 2017, when he was given a standing ovation for his passionate and inspiring talk on ‘Fighting for Europe’. Three years on a lot has changed in our political landscape, and once again we have invited Professor Grayling to share his thoughts and insights on the next steps for our movement.
The campaign to remain in the EU is at a crossroads, but A.C. Grayling has been one of the public voices urging us not to give up hope. He has written to Pro-Remain groups to remind us: ‘The Brexit negotiations, quarrels, disputes, trouble for the government from the ERG and ‘true Brexiters’ etc – the realities of the effect on the economy – will change the character of the debate, so long as we don’t give up talking and arguing about Brexit and the UK’s relationship with the EU.’
