Brexit Britain: Two Rooms Revisited20180131

Brixton and Boston voters return to discuss Brexit negotiations with Fi Glover.

Fi Glover reunites the Boston leavers and the Brixton remainers, who we first met in 2016, to discover how their feelings about Brexit have evolved as negotiations unfold.

Shortly after the 2016 referendum, two groups from the two political extremities of Brexit Britain were invited into separate rooms to discuss their feelings. One room was occupied by residents of Boston, where a record high 75.6% of residents voted Leave, and the other by those from Brixton in South London, where 78.6% of the population voted Remain.

Those forward looking conversations established what each room was expecting from Brexit, for the future of issues such as trade, education, free movement of people, immigration controls and national identity.

Now, we invite them back to see how their hopes and fears are evolving, and whether their views have hardened or softened as the Brexit process has got underway.
In moderated sessions, the Brixtonians and the Bostonians discuss the feelings among themselves, before coming together in a single group session to understand their counterparts.

Crucially, we ask them to look back on the decision they made on 23rd June 2016, and ask whether they would still vote the same way today.

Presenter Fi Glover navigates us through the conversations, while Claer Barrett of the Financial Times and Fraser Nelson of The Spectator analyse the discussions.
