Claire took part in a new show, The Debate, produced by students at the University of Salford. The first topic was Brexit and Claire pointed out how, quite to the astonishment of many politicians who were worried about a low turnout, voters in the EU referendum were engaged and took the issue very seriously. Whatever the reasons for calling the referendum and the queries over the referendum question, Claire noted, politicians thought it would result in a vote to Remain and the issue would be settled. The electorate had other ideas.
Claire’s fellow guests are Conservative MP Sir Graham Brady and former Lib Dem MP and opposition leader on Manchester City Council, John Leech.
