In 1973, the UK joined the European Union. In 2016, UK citizens were asked if they wished to Remain in the EU or Leave. On a 72% turnout, Leave won by 1.3 million votes, 51.9% to 48.1% and Brexit prevailed. When the UK left the EU on January 31, 2020—and the Single Market and Customs Union on December 31, 2020—decades of pro-EU British Foreign Policy orthodoxy ended too. Three years on as COVID recedes, Toby Fenwick ’95 will assess Brexit’s impact on the UK’s economic and political fortunes.
