Joining us this week to make the case for a left exit for Britain from the European Union is George Hoare, member of The Full Brexit team and co-host of Aufhebungabunga podcast. We discuss the past, present, and future of Brexit, and then George makes the socialist case for a left exit from the European Union.
This episode is bound is be thought-provoking and even controversial in many circles. Brexit has been degraded into a culture war, which means that material relationships have been obfuscated by moralistic and identity claims. Tune in to sift through the muck.
We at Brave New Europe don’t take a position on Brexit. While we recognise that many dark and odious forces lay behind the Brexit vote, and that the process will inflict significant economic damage on many people, we also know that European institutions and policies typically reflect a strong neoliberal slant – and we launched this project to oppose and change this. We have sympathy with the anger against European institutions – but we also believe in the principle of European cross-border co-operation and co-ordination in many areas. Reflecting this complex reality, we will host both pro-Brexit and pro-Remain articles.
