‘Brexit’ – the decision that the UK will leave the EU following the outcome of the referendum which took place on 23 June 2016 – has profound consequences for our people, our economy, our political leaders and the UK’s place in the world, as well as the European Union. As a treaty based organisation the European Union influences not only our economy, through trade and development, but the way we are governed, the way our rights are protected, our environment and many other aspects of our daily lives.
