However Brexit transpires, Britain will continue to be a significant world power – one of the world’s largest economies, NATO’s second military power, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and one of the world’s leading cultural and scientific centres. It is also one of South Africa’s most important friends and partners. Nevertheless, there are serious questions to be asked about the constitutional future of the United Kingdom, its future political and party structures and the future development of its economy. Robert Jackson, MEP (1979–1984) MP (1983–2005) and successively Minister for Higher Education and Science, Minister for Vocational Education and Minister for Public Services (1987–1993), will review these questions and try to answer them in the context of reflections on wider current trends in world politics, economics and ideology
