This Wednesday night over a beer is your opportunity to quiz a Brexit campaigner and ask them face to face: “Just what the hell were you thinking?!” Join the regular Liberty on the Rocks crew to hear from Andrew Bates, who many of you know, talking about the election that kicked off an unbelievable political year – and the ideas that fired up the Brexiteers.
Here’s the write-up from our friends at Auckland Liberty on the Rocks:
Liberty on the Rocks is a regular monthly happy hour for liberty-minded folks to meet others and build their knowledge and friendships over beers, food and great conversation.
This month, fresh from Europe, Andrew Bates will speak on the recent Brexit referendum, the lead up and aftermath, and the ideas that were and are at stake.
Come along and hear about Brexit from a liberty-loving Europhile who was campaigning to make it happen!
Andrew is a New Zealander who joined the Libertarianz party in 1998 and became a list candidate and Tertiary Education Deregulation Spokesman for the next two electoral cycles. He lead the campaign to make membership of the Auckland University Students' Association voluntary in1999, winning the referendum against the Students' Association funded campaign by 98 votes out of 12,000. The following year he increased the philosophical focus of the campaign and increased the margin to around 75%.Andrew moved to the UK in 2007 and became a naturalised British citizen in 2014. He has been learning Dutch and Polish, travels throughout Europe, works in the Netherlands, and flew back on weekends to campaign for the UK leaving the EU. Come along and find out why this Europe-lover hates the EU.
