Whichever side you were on in the referendum debate, it cannot be denied that June 23rd shook the British political establishment to its core. After the ‘Leave’ vote, the Prime Minister stepped down, opening the door for a leadership contest that would see alliances and friendships torn apart, accusations of backstabbing and – finally – the emergence of a new Prime Minister in Theresa May. But that wasn’t the last of it: May’s cabinet appointments were yet another set of unexpected results. One man who was at the centre of the fray during this tumultuous fortnight was Sir Craig Oliver, David Cameron’s Director of Politics and Communications. In Unleashing Demons: The Inside Story of Brexit, Sir Craig tells the tale of the months leading up to the EU referendum, and the weeks following it: the dramas, the pacts, the betrayals.

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with Sir Craig Oliver. As 2016 draws to its close, he will reflect on what has been the most turbulent year in British politics since the 2010 general election. With insights, anecdotes and experience, Sir Craig will enlighten us about what went on behind closed doors in the early weeks of June. And he will discuss where Britain might now be heading, as we face the dawn of 2017.

Sir Craig Oliver is the former Director of Communications for British Prime Minister David Cameron. Previously, he was Controller of English news output for BBC Global News, responsible for commissioning the news content for the corporation’s English-language global services, including the BBC World Service, BBC World News and BBC News Online. He is the author of Unleashing Demons: The Inside Story of Brexit which will be for sale on the day for £20. Cash only please.
