David Starkey: The Brexit Crisis and its Historical Origins6th March
Our recent political crisis is both very new and very old. The issue - our membership of the EU – is wholly modern but it is being fought over the historic ground of the Reformation and the constitutional crisis of the Civil War of the 17th century.
David Starkey uses his unique familiarity with both history and our current politics to discuss what has gone wrong and what could have been done differently.
David will be signing books in the gallery after the talk.
