Reframing the opposition to Brexit

Last call for the meeting tomorrow, Haloween Tuesday 31 October, from 7.30, book here. I'll join Caroline Lucas, who has a piece about it in the Guardian online. Also Labour MP Clive Lewis, Suzanne Moore and John Harris. Tickets from Eventbrite. It will be filmed if you can't get to London. Plus, I replied to a critic of my analysis of the English nature of Brexit in openDemocracy. Which then ran a nice piece by Adam Ramsay on why Russian dark money must not be an excuse for evading what happened. And Labour Tube are running a long video interview with me in sections, parts 1 & 2 are up.

Here are the links in full

The event,

Anthony Barnett, Why Brexit? It's the English Stupid

Caroline Lucas, Stop this tragic farce, Brexit must be reversed
