Brexit Republic Episode Twenty Two - Bonus edition
On Thursday, December 13 Sir Ivan Rogers delivered a hard-hitting speech to the University of Liverpool's Heseltine Institute for Public Policy, Practice and Place.
Sir Ivan Rogers was the UK Permanent Representative to the EU from 2013 -17.
When he resigned in 2017 he wrote to his colleagues, telling them:
"I hope you will continue to challenge ill-founded arguments and muddled thinking and that you will never be afraid to speak the truth to those in power. I hope that you will support each other in those difficult moments where you have to deliver messages that are disagreeable to those who need to hear them."
He had a robust analysis of the current Brexit debate most recent speech. The Heseltine Institute has kindly provided us with the audio of the speech for this podcast.
