Listeners to Lembit Opik’s programme on Radio Kent heard a discussion on the consequences of ‘Brexit’ earlier this month as CEFEUS Director Dr Amelia Hadfield appeared on the show alongside Sir Roger Gale, Conservative MP for North Thanet and Henry Bolton, UKIP’s candidate for Kent Police and Crime Commissioner. Dr Hadfield discussed issues in the news – including fracking and global warming – before discussion turned to the thorny question of Britain’s relationship with Europe and the rest of the world.
Discussion cohered around three topics; the consequences of a Brexit on the current refugee crisis, the legalisation and regulation of drug use in Britain, and the significance of Donald Trump’s rise in the Republican primaries in the US.
The programme is available to listen to at the link below. Dr Hadfield’s contribution begins at 0:22:00. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03jy5tr#play
