We're pleased to announce that our submission to the IEA's Brexit Prize has reached the final six.
We were shortlisted last year to make a full submission of up to 20,000 words. We made this submission in February and have now passed the final hurdle before the winner is announced on April 8th. The last six in the competition can be found here.
You can find out more about the competition here but the premise for submissions is as follows:
"A referendum has resulted in an “Out” vote and Her Majesty’s Government has triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. What measures does the UK need to take in the following two years, domestically (within the UK), vis-a-vis the remaining EU and internationally, in order to promote a free and prosperous economy?"
CX does not take a position on whether the UK should remain in the EU but feel it is important that plans are in place should it chose freely to do so. As a result we put forward our submission arguing that the Commonwealth and wider Anglosphere should be at the forefront of any UK plans if it were to leave the union. As the competition is still going on we obviously don't want to reveal more at this stage.
Thanks to all who assisted with the submission and put up with us while we were writing! Wish us luck for the prize!
