If you didn’t read or catch these interviews first time round you might like to refresh your browsers and listen to our new B4B national media articles and interviews. It’s been a busy week for us and our contributors who are setting the agenda on Brexit and countering the over-hyped concerns of Remainers.
Graham Gudgin has co-authored with the Ireland diplomat Ray Bassett (former ambassador to Canada, Jamaica and the Bahamas) a report published by Policy Exchange, “Getting over the Line”, https://policyexchange.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Getting-over-the-line.pdf. It explains (yet again!) how the Ireland border can be managed. This is now well known, and the conclusion that the issue is being ‘weaponized’ is unavoidable.
