Description

Join us as former UK Minister of State Lord David Frost reflects on the political and economic situation of Britain two years after the country’s exit from the European Union. He’ll also discuss how conservative politics need to develop in Britain if the opportunities of Brexit are to be fully exploited as well as Britain’s global role, including how it should position itself in the face of the challenge from China.

Lord Frost began life as a professional diplomat but entered the political fray as Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Chief Negotiator for EU Exit and subsequently as Minister in his government responsible for EU relations. He delivered Britain's exit from the EU against the odds and negotiated the Trade & Cooperation Agreement with the EU in 2020. He resigned from the government last December to protest plans to introduce a further coronavirus lockdown. Lord Frost is now a writer, commentator, and Senior Fellow at Policy Exchange, the UK’s leading think tank.
