Leavers of Liverpool event, 12 September

Claire will be speaking at an event jointly hosted by Leavers of Liverpool and the Liverpool Salon. The event takes place at The Casa, 29 Hope Street, Liverpool and starts at 7pm.

Claire will be joined by Costas Lapavitas, professor of economics at SOAS, a former Syriza MP in Greek Parliament and author of The Left Case Against the EU.

What kind of Brexit do we want and what might a democratic commitment to leaving the EU mean for the future of British politics? In a public debate that has been dominated by trade negotiations, Claire and Costas both emphasise the political dimensions of Brexit and defend popular sovereignty. They disagree, however, about the way the 2016 vote can be secured and then expressed in post-Brexit Britain. Is Brexit an end in itself or a means to an end, and what end? What role should political parties and Parliament have? Join this important debate that brings together two speakers who both challenge the dominant political narrative.

All welcome. Admission free. Collection on the night.
