In-depth interview for World Radio Switzerland

In an extended and wide-ranging interview for World Radio Switzerland Lord Owen covers many subjects including domestic politics and his involvement in the breakaway from Labour in the 1980s to form the Social Democratic Party; the strong sinews of nationhood that has been behind the growing support, including his own, for Brexit; and the dilemma the referendum result has caused the Labour and Conservative Party which are both split. How the Eurozone, which is too large, will have to adjust in the future and how the UK outside the EU can have a more global freedom as opposed to the rather protectionist EU. Also covered were reminisces of his time as EU peace negotiator for the former Yugoslavia and its continuing problems; and the importance of NATO.
