'Ireland has become front and centre in Brexit debate and British politicians are having to get their heads around that'
Brexit D-Day is coming ever closer and yet the British government continues to lurch shambolically through the issue, its approach a chaotic mix of delusion and ineptitude. A refreshingly clear-eyed and illuminating view of Brexit can be found this weekend at the Galway Film Fleadh, when David Wilkinson’s documentary Postcards From the 48% will be screened at the Pálás cinema on Sunday afternoon.
The title alludes to the 48 per cent of UK voters who wanted to remain in the EU, and Wilkinson travelled around the UK interviewing young and old, industrialists and trade unionists, Conservatives and Labourites, English, Scots, Welsh and Irish - whose voices add up to compelling arguments for Britain should stay in the EU. Contributors include Ian McEwan, AC Grayling, Alastair Campbell, Baroness Wheatcroft, Miriam Margolyes, and, from Derry, Mark Durkan of the SDLP.
