Brexit and the world stage – William Hague’s personal insight.
The final keynote speaker, prominent political leader for more than 20 years, Rt. Hon. Lord William Hague (Lord Hague of Richmond), took to the stage to give his view of the world. He gave the audience a degree of humour and personal insights into what is happening around the world and what could happen in the future. He touched on the increase in population in Africa and Asia and the effects this could have when a proportion head for Europe. His view on the potential independence of Scotland and what will happen when Britain leaves the EU “Just because they are crazy does not mean they won’t do it.” says Lord Hague.
He also mentioned that migration was a key factor in the Brexit vote and that Boris Johnson may well have been the single most influential person in the outcome of it.
