Brendan Donnelly argues in this new Federal Trust video that the economic and political problems generated by Brexit are of little concern to its leading sponsors. Their primary interest lies in rupturing the British connection to the European mainland as quickly and thoroughly as possible. The result is a debasement of British political life, in which sleaze and cronyism have become all too frequent.
SPEAKER: Brendan Donnelly is the director of the Federal Trust and former Conservative MEP.
