On 14 October 2015, Hogan Lovells' Constitutional Change Taskforce hosted a discussion dinner on the political challenges associated with constitutional upheaval. Guest speaker Lord Michael Dobbs joined guests and gave his insights on the current agenda for constitutional change in the UK as well as the impending EU referendum.
Michael has had an eclectic career to date. He was with Margaret Thatcher when she took her first steps into Downing Street, and was there again with John Major when he was kicked out. In between he was bombed at Brighton, banished from Chequers, and in quieter moments wrote 'House of Cards', which later became a huge television series. Twice.
The evening prompted an interesting and lively discussion, with much focus given to Brexit and its possible implications.
