With the U.K. on the verge of saying “piss off” to Brussels, the great European democratic project hangs in the balance.
On June 23, Britons will go to the polls for a monumental referendum on whether to remain part of the European Union or say goodbye to the supranational beast that is Brussels.
Can Prime Minister David Cameron quell the boisterous “Leave” camp within his own party? Can the opposition Labour Party muster enough votes for “Remain”? Will Scotland secede (for real, this time) if the Brits pull out? And why should Americans care if England decides it really is better off as an island?
So. Many. Questions.
Join David Rothkopf, Rosa Brooks, Kori Schake, and Ben Pauker for a few answers and a conversation on the repercussions of the “Brexit” — the breakfast cereal everyone’s talking about.
