Podcast: Do we need a second referendum on Europe?

Demonstrators rally in London on June 24, 2016, in support of immigrants after Britain voted to leave the European Union in a historic referendum. (Kyodo)

This week I spoke to my old colleague Ed West who writes this week about post-Brexit remorse.

Ed writes this week that “just as Britain was taken into the Common Market on a lie, so it was taken out of the European Union on a lie” consequently “leave voters are left with a sickening feeling that we have helped to bring about a great disaster.”

Ed was always a champion of leaving the European Union and so I decided to call him and find out what had prompted his political conversion.
