Event Short Description

Gavin Esler – How Britain Ends, In conversation with Stewart Collins

Event Information

The journalist and television presenter Gavin Esler has produced a book about the rise of English nationalism and what he sees as the impending breakup of the United Kingdom. How Britain Ends is a book about history, but also about the identity of Britishness.

In the past, it was possible to live with confusion: one could be English, or British, Scottish or Irish and a citizen/subject of the United Kingdom (or Great Britain). For years that state has been what Gavin Esler calls a ‘secret federation’, but without the explicit federal arrangements that allow Germany or the USA to survive. With major stresses and strains having shown themselves in recent years, Esler asks what constitutional or federal arrangements might prevent the disintegration of the British state, which has survived in its present form for 400 years?

Join at St Mary’s Church on the 4th of November in conversation with Stewart Collins.
