  9. No speaker addressed one of the most important – if not the most important – problems of Brexit: its international implications.
    The international aspect has been almost totally ignored throughout the referendum campaign and since. Yet I find that people I talk to on a random basis are deeply upset, even ashamed, the find that the UK is deserting ints friends and allies in an hour of great danger when democracy is at stake in this Trumpian world where the US can no longer be counted on. The UK should be supporting the unity of the West and the EU as a last bastion of democracy – not weakening it with Brexit with its ever more elusive benefits and being absorbed with the ever greater difficulties in negotiating it that we daily hear about. The UK has a major part to play in supporting the integrity of the EU and in taking part in its reform – not being paralysed on the international stage by the demands of Brexitery.
