27 Ex-Wives - Brexit, the Needed Divorce

Honesty about incompatibility. m/r

Niall Ferguson, "I was wrong on Brexit"   

Published on Dec 8, 2016
Debate panel of 5 continuity remain voices... Historian Niall Ferguson had other ideas, to speak for Brexit. The hour long debate was highly negative about Brexit. Roland Rudd is scornful, bitter, superior. Marieluise Beck conspiratorial. Anton Muscatelli 'rational' self-concealed pessimism. Total derision against a Sovereignty (Hard) Brexit. Usual misunderstandings and slurs against brexit, nothing new added to the debate by the continuity remain voices. So the whole debate is not for optimists.

There is ONE other Niall Speaking Section that is not included in video, it can be found here:
