Only a few months after the Brexit shock, the British politics have already started a long generational realignment. 


After the appointment of Theresay May as Prime Minister, tensions are very high regarding the Labour leadership. No matter what the result will be, Brexit has definitely divided the British into two divided camps. 

Join us to discuss the Post Brexit issue: will there be a realignment of British Politics? with Ashley Fox, Leader of the Conservatives Party in the European Parliament, Catherine Bearder MEP, ALDE and Richard Corbett, Deputy Leader of the Labour MEPs. 
The debate will be moderated by John Stevens, Daily Mail's Europe correspondent. 
The event will start with a welcoming cocktail.
