Dr. Victoria Bateman – Brexit: The Naked Truth

In this one-off performance at the Cambridge Junction theatre in January 2019, on the eve of the Parliamentary vote on Britain’s exit from the European Union, Dr. Victoria Bateman argues that Britain has sold itself the emperor’s new clothes. She explores how Brexit leaves the British economy exposed, how it has uncovered and fuelled dangerous anti-immigration sentiments, and how it has laid bare the failures of past policy – failures that mean that too many people believe they have nothing to lose from Brexit simply because they have nothing at all. Victoria concludes with a warning: that Britain is changing direction, away from travelling the road that leads to a free and open society to instead travel a path that is nationalistic and unwelcoming. In the dark times ahead, we must all keep on making the case for freedom – a freedom that goes beyond the individual nation state and that allows each and every one of us to make the most of our lives no matter where we are born. Brexit leaves Britain naked.
