FCO Officer wins BREXIT prize
A British trade attaché has been awarded the €100,000 Brexit prize for outlining the most compelling blueprint for a withdrawal from the EU.
Iain Mansfield, the director of trade and investment at the UK Embassy in Manila, argued that a British exit from the EU would free the City from “European interference”. The prize was awarded by the right wing Institute for Economic Affairs thinktank.
