Our nearest neighbour seems to be in an ongoing state of division and uncertainty for the last number of years, a situation which has been further exacerbated by the COVID–19 pandemic. With the arrival of Brexit, where to next for an increasingly disunited kingdom?

John Lanchester, novelist and journalist, known for explaining the 2007 financial crisis to us all and Fintan O’Toole, one of Ireland’s best–known journalists, known for explaining Brexit and its roots to us all, are joined in conversation by Martina Fitzgerald, author of Madame Politician, a study of Irish female politicians.

This First Thought Talk was recorded in September 2020 as part of Galway International Arts Festival's Autumn Edition. First Thought Talks are presented in association with Festival Education Partner NUI Galway.
