UK leaving EU? Lawson on prize for essay competition

Lord Lawson appears on BBC News

Lord Lawson appeared on BBC News to discuss the IEA's Brexit Prize.

There is cash prize of 100,000 euros (£87,000) for an initial 2,000-word essay giving the best reasons for Britain to leave the European Union. Former Conservative chancellor Nigel Lawson, who is chairing the Institution of Economic Affairs' panel of judges, spoke of the "fundamental change" of Britain's EU relationship, with the arrival of the euro currency and eurozone. He reckoned the EU was "not prepared to make any significant changes" and any British prime minister would only achieve "inconsequential" negotiations.
