In January 2017 Prime Minister Theresa May unveiled her strategy for Britain's exit from the European Union, which includes leaving the single market. How will Britain and the European Union remain "best friends and neighbours" after a profoundly changed political and economic relationship? This talk will explore what possibilities and consequences Britain's departure from the single market may hold for Britain's relationship with the European Union. YouGov's Marcus Roberts, Director of International Projects, will additionally present polling data on Brexit, and Britain and Europe's future relationship.
