Brexit Prizewinner

Iain Mansfield, a member of the British diplomatic service in Manila, was the winner of the IEA's Brexit prize. His prize-winning essay, which can be accessed here, argues that Britain's exit from the EU should be used as an opportunity to embrace free-trade agreements with other major trading nations. Guardian coverage is here and a Daily Telegraph story on how Mansfield was silenced by the Foreign Office can be found here. Of course, the great irony was that the prize money was paid in euros!
