Europe: The view from London with Hon. Andrew Staunton
The word “monumental” is not too strong to describe the crises facing leaders in the United Kingdom. The Prime Minister has just stepped aside for a controversial leader after failing to achieve an European Union “Brexit” deal while London comes to grips with the seizure of a British flag vessel by Iran. Join us for an “off the record” conversation with UK Consul General Andrew Staunton to discuss these challenges and more facing America’s close ally.
