    Foreign Academics told not to advise Foreign Office on Brexit

    Publications

    Foreign academics at the London School of Economics (LSE) have announced that they are no longer required to advise the Foreign Office on Brexit because they are not British passport holders. Following the referendum result, a team of researchers from LSE had been appointed to advise ministers over policy issues arising from Britain’s exit strategy from the European Union. Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said that this U-turn was clear evidence that the government was abandoning rational policy-making in favour of ‘petty chauvinism’. The Foreign office has denied these claims, stating – “Britain is an outward-looking nation and we will continue to take advice from the best and brightest minds, regardless of nationality”.
