Brexit: A Growing Disaster for the EU

Joining PCFR from London, Lord Howard Flight will provide his perspective over the U.K. leaving the European Union. Along with many other Brits, Lord Flight believes that the decision to leave the European Union was the correct one. He argues that the handling of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution has shown that the European Commission is not to be trusted and lacking in principles. This series of incidents, which Lord Flight will discuss and argue in this talk, thoroughly exposes the ill will of the Commission and, quite early on after Britain’s departure, validates the need for Brexit.
